Koru and Sockhead Hats

I finished another hat yesterday so thought I'd take advantage of the sunshine and Mr Soaring Sheep being around to take some photos in the garden. My littlest girl wanted to join in too :-)


(yes I do infact have a rainbow windmill toy growing out of my head, all the cool people are wearing them this Autumn!)



I think this lace pattern is absolutely gorgeous and it was what attracted me to the design. You may also be able to see the alternating bands of twisted stitches and normal stockinette around the hat


As little miss is a much better knitwear model than I am we swapped hats




Crazy child :-)

The hat pattern I used was Koru by Libby of Truly Myrtle. It was really good fun to knit, very clear instructions and she's done tutorials for all the complicated sounding decreases on her blog incase you get stuck. The twisted stitches really make the design pop :-)

I'm not really one for wearing hats normally, but I thought I'd better get a couple made up as I'm anticipating lots of being outside in the cold this Winter. Why is that? Well because we're getting a puppy! One of these to be precise:

newborn puppies

This photo was taken when they were newborn. They are now 8 days old and we got to visit them for the first time today



The next 7 weeks are going to fly by I'm sure ♥


  1. Your hat looks fab! The colour is perfect on you and the yarn defines the stitches so well! Cute were pup too - have fun!

  2. Those puppies are adorable. I bet your kids are so excited. And I love the middle photos of you and little Miss Ham, especially when you're not looking at the camera. Adorable! Great finishes with these new beanie additions.

    1. We've been a year for this litter so it's been a long build up. Can't quite believe in a few weeks time we're going to be responsible for one of them lol.

      Thank you :)

  3. Your hats look really good, I bet these next few weeks will fly by waiting for your new puppy x

    1. Thank you :) The time is feeling slow at the moment, I'm trying to make the most of not having someone chewing on me or peeing on the floor lol

  4. you two look adorable in your hats, very very pretty!! Now congrats on the puppy!!! that is super exciting :)

    1. Thank you :) We are super excited about the pup, we've wanted a dog for a long time

  5. Lovely photos and hats! Great times ahead with your new puppy!!! xx

    1. Thank you :) I'm such a cliché, my youngest child goes to school and I get myself a fur baby to look after lol
