I've been so obsessed with making Hatz the last few days. I have .5 muffatee to finish to make 50, and I'm working on Hatz! Oh well, I'll get it done before the great September mailing. Who knows, I might even make a few more!
This one ^ is a little crocheted baby hat.
Hatz 2 is a larger baby hat. Also crocheted.
This is for a toddler to small child. Rolled brim, nothing spectacular. But it's warm!
An adult headband with some short rows to make the front wider. It fits me, but would easily fit a man's larger head, nice and wide at the ears to keep them warm.
I started another one last night while watching the discovery of ancient Phoenician ships in the Black Sea. Seriously, it was interesting. Tonight is a reshowing of the the more recent discoveries at Stonehenge. Gotta love the National Geographic Channel! Oh, and tonight is a show about the Bog Mummies of Stone Age Northern Europe. Now, why discuss this on a knitting blog? Have you heard of Elizabeth Zimmerman's Bog Jacket? More pics. And a woven version. Well, some of the mummies found in the aforementioned bogs wore these kinds of jackets/shirts. So grab you knittin' and tune into NatGeo tonight and see a bit of history you can replicate!
Oh, the hat I started last night...doing a bit of color work on that one. One nice thing about using Fair Isle with all the floats in the back, is it doubles the fabric to make it extra warm. Even if you only do a band of it, as I am, it helps keep the forehead much warmer!
