More wintry pom-pom hats...

Still having far too much fun with the pom-pom maker. So thought I should make hats to go with the pom-poms



Ooo, and matching cowls too to keep those little wintry necks snug. 

The pattern for the hats is the Chili Pepper hat from Spud & Chloe with added pom-pom. Of course.  The navy hat is knitted in the oh-so-soft Millamia dreamy wool, using midnight and claret. The grey was from the wool basket, left over from making these Minion goggles, a still surprise to me snug James C Brett DK. The blue hat used up the rest of the grey, and also the leftovers from making  Minion dungarees, and yet more lovely Millamia in scarlet.

The pattern for the cowls is the Uno Cowl from Millamia's Bright Young Things. With some stretchy blocking they happily fit two nine year olds,  not just the toddler mentioned in the pattern. Hope your Auntie knits are keeping you snug this winter, Reuben and Casper!

And causing great excitement yesterday was the loss of Patch's first tooth. Swallowed along with his brioche. Patch was a little concerned about lack of tooth so wrote a covering note to place in the little pot for the tooth fairy, and we gave him Mater because until we get used to these adult teeth he reminds us just a little of his favourite tow truck... So thank you for the sweet pot Goodmums Linda and Ems - finally put to use!

  1. Oh now I do like those pom pom hats and the matching cowls - I have similar hats for my boys (but bought and not nearly so lovely), but they have sadly now refused to wear them as they've hit that age where it's all scull and crossbone hats etc - boo!

    1. Hmmm... skull and crossbones with a pom-pom atop? Maybe not the look they are hoping for...

    1. Something so ridiculously happy about making woolly pom-poms! Maybe I can wean myself off them once more spring like weather appears. Or maybe I'll continue, just with cheery spring colours!
