Hats!

I've lost the run of myself in the last week or two, casting on All. The. Things. 
There have been quite a few baby hats (two beautiful babies were born to friends in the last month).  

Most of the hats have involved lots of stocking stitch; great for knitting along to subtitled tv programmes. And if there is an opportunity to add a pom-pom, all the better!

L-R:
Doodie by Woolly Wormhead in Debbie Bliss Rialto. In the largest size.
Doodie by Woolly Wormhead. I accidentally omitted a round of increases just after the brim, but this helps the pom-pommed hat stay on! Also in Debbie Bliss Rialto
Tubey by Woolly Wormhead in Rico Essentials Soft Merino Aran, and Katia Darling which I had chain plied.


L-R:
Cubba by Woolly Wormhead in Debbie Bliss Rialto
Aviatrix Hat by Justine Turner in Debbie Bliss Rialto

It turns out that the pom-pommed hat intended for my small human is too slouchy to bear the weight of the pom pom and stay on her little head. More knitting required!!
