I was sure that when I moved to Australia back in 2016 I wouldn’t be able to knit for myself anymore and more importantly I wouldn’t be able to wear any knits anymore. Imagine my happiness at discovering that this was not the case! Oh so happy!
It’s getting cooler here in Australia, but should I really be saying that when most of the rest of the world is suffering through an endless Winter? Sorry folks, I wish I could send you some of our sunshine. But since I can’t how about seeing a collection of hats for the next few days?
First off….Simple, but effective beanies.
These beanies were a wholesale order for Greenwich Baby in Greenwich, using leftovers of DROPS Merino Extra Fine. I love this pattern, it’s my go to for a quick baby hat. Most of the sizes I can whip up in a couple of hours. And even though it’s a simple pattern I feel that a lot can be done to it with yarn and colour choices.
Same hat, different yarn. The incredibly soft DROPS Nepal.
And yet again, same hat, different yarn. This time some DROPS Muskat.
This sweet hat is another one using DROPS Nepal and I saved this to last because look at the handsome little dude wearing it.
A friend that I studied Journalism with had a baby boy at the start of this year. Even though I haven’t seen my friend since I finished my studies in 2004 I still wanted to knit her something. So I knitted my usual go-to beanie and bootie combo.
The beanie is my old favourite from DROPS, and I knit this up in the 0-3 months size since it was going to be a Winter baby.
I also knitted up my version of Saartjes Bootees in a matching green and light blue.
I boxed both of them up in one of my boxes and sent them off to my friend.
My friend sent me a picture of her sweet little boy in his little hat. Such a cutie.

Just a quick post for today. I knitted a beanie for one of Luke’s friends from Kindergarten in January of this year.
It’s this easy and quick DROPS pattern. I knitted this up in a couple of hours.
My friend picked the lovely blue, which is DROPS Alaska.
