3 New Hats Complete

I have Knitted 2 more Chunky Cabled Ear Flap Hats, one of which has sold already (actually, it had sold before I had even knitted it). The other is now in stock on the site.

The other hat i made over the weekend is the Snowboard Mohawk Beanie Ear Flap Hat. This was to replace the stock on the site, as I have sold 2 of these so far.
As for what else im doing, I have a list of things to do really. I have some ear flaps to add to my other half's beanie, as he found that he really wanted when we were on hols last. Also, I did start out trying to pattern up my Aran weight Cabled Ear Flap Hat, but i realised 30 rows in, that I really dont have the correct weight yarn to do this right now. So until I do, i think i might start on a DK weight version.

Back from Andorra

Well Im back in one peice - Just about. Only had 2 misshaps. One involving a big bruise on my hip - that is to be expected, and the other inolving me using my face as a break :)

Other than that, I am in good condition now, and I had a great time.

I returned home to find that SnowHats.co.uk had made 2 sales whilst I was gone. The the New Cream Chunky Cabled Ear Flapper and the Snowboarder Mohawk Ear Flapper Hat.

Also, I have had a lovely lady from Ravelry test knitting my Chunky Cabled Ear Flapper Pattern.
She has almoast finished the test knit which uncovered a few minor typos in the pattern.

So just to leave you with a few pics of Andorra.

How Deep is this snow!!!

Chunky Cabled EarFlapper

Chunky Cabled Ear Flapper - SnowHats.co.uk
(Suitable for Snowboarders and skiers, or cuteness)

I bought this wonderfully soft chunky yarn, 80% polyacrylic 20% superwash wool, and I thought this would be the ideal yarn for this project.

So I knitted up a chunky yarn version of my Cabled Ear Flapper.

It worked wonderfully, so much so, the first one I made, Im keeping for myself.

I wrote up the pattern and I have it ready in PDF format. Im just waiting for Ravelry to hook me up with a PDF download.

I have enough of this lovely chunky soft yarn to make atleast 2 more.

So this second one I have made is already listed on SnowHats.co.uk.

So you can either buy one ready made, or the pattern. You decide :)

Ps. 2 days to go till snowboarding
