For the purposes of alliteration I wish I could say there were ten tiny hats at Monday night Knitting Circle, but alas there were only nine. Still, that's a lot of tiny hats!
They were on their way to the heads of premature babies and because of the style of hat, I kept imagining a whole lot of teeny tiny babies in rugby shorts and gumboots, stomping around a farm on a frosty morning wearing their solid ribbed hats pulled down over their ears and muttering.
(The yarn in the top right corner is a Punta Yarns Merisock Hand Painted and was being used to start a wee shawl/wrap called 'The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief', I know this because the person knitting with it is very good at keeping her Ravelry projects and stash up to date. She is also prolific (last year I posted a photo of some socks she was making the first time she came along on a Monday night) - she's doing an 11 shawls in 2011 challenge and has already completed three. Where do these people find the time?!)
