Below are my first attempts at ever knitting anything than a scarf. The WIP hat (white with blue and pink) was my first attempt and all I have to finish is two rows of crochet and then to sew it up. It was from a kit called 'Sean Sheep', however I substituted the main wool in the kit with a with a white mohair that i had already used to make a scarf. The blue is a bit overexposed in the photo so it's not that bright.
The second hat is me trying to adapt the pattern of the first to make it ribbing. I didn't do too badly but stuffed up around the top - hopefully no one will look closely at the top of my head
. That wool is also "sean Sheep" The blue fluffy stuff is called 'ayers' and is 100% nylon but soooo soft and the other is 'armytage' and is 100% wool.
