After my long knitting project (well long for me) of my cardigan, some quick knits were called for, and the outcome was a bunch of lovely warm hats.

Pattern: Earflap Hat For Kids by Knittwittz (raveled here)
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Rue and Dusty Sage
Was for Eva... she refused to wear it so it's been gifted to her friend that DOES wear hats

Pattern: Cherub Cheeks beanie by Amanda Tipton (raveled here)
Yarn: Moda Vera Cardellino
For Eva's buddy

Pattern: Molly's hat (raveled here)
Yarn: Panda Machinewash 8ply Crepe 
My first attempt in Fair Isle and it's lovely and it's MINE!

Pattern: Versatile Earflap (raveled here)
Yarn: Moda Vera Cardellino
For Isabella

Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece
For Liam

I also finished off a pair of fingerless mittens... perfect for typing or sewing but keeping the hands warm!

Pattern: Simple Fingerless Mitts (raveled here)
Yarn: No idea, an 8ply gifted from Mum

I had to modify the pattern for these to work, after working the first mitt as per the pattern, the bind off was far too loose and the thumb too long. In the end, after knitting up 2.5 mitts to get 2 useable ones, I'm happy... Now we are all geared up for the cold.
