Go Gryffindor

Morgan wanted me to knit him a Gryffindor hat - well actually he wanted socks first.... but then he looked at the 'Charmed Knits' book and decided he wanted a beanie.  So a beanie he got.

It was a very easy knit and I loved the fact it is my Primary School colours - made me think of my school days *grin*

Morgan was a little sad when he tried it on - his brother had just hit him in the mouth - hopefully I'll get some better shots soon.

Twin Hats

My lovely friend Joy has just had twins so I knitted them some hats.

I used Hipknits Aran silk which I love knitting with.  Joy is not a girlie girl (a bit like me) so pink wasn't really an option.  I used the lovely jewel-like colours of plain green and plain purple.  One hat in each with an accent of the other to connect them.  I even did my first fairisle with the purple.

I love how these have turned out and am going to post them off today. 

Now what to do with the remains?
