After counting the votes over on Instagram and reaching a tie breaker…can you believe it! I decided to pom my hat in neither black nor white. Instead I found this gorgeous faux fur yarn by James C Brett called Chinchilla. It is beautifully soft and has the necessary fluffiness you would want and expect.
What do you think? I am really thrilled.
It sits on top of this little cotton baby hat with grandeur and the whole hat feels divine.
I have been making a whole host of hats and have swapped cotton (just for a little while) for a beautiful alpaca blend yarn called ‘Leader of the Pac’ it is an aran weight yarn and a dream to hook with.
I have hooked quite a pile…
I have also discovered another amazing yarn…’Wendy Botanics chunky’. It is an acrylic yarn and the colourway is simply beautiful. I have made some more baby hats in this and I couldn’t resist making a ‘Papa and baby’ matching set…just look…
So, you can see I have been busy making and adding to the shelves of my little Etsy shop in preparation for the winter time…although it is Summer here in the UK, I haven’t felt out of place hooking these hats as it has been really very cold and wet here!
What have you been up to?

I think it looks adorable! You have been busy. All your hats look wonderful and will keep a lot of heads warm this winter. I need to add a faux fur ball to my hat I made last year 😉
Ahh thank you. It’s fun making the poms. I’m sure your hat will look great xx
So lovely, and baby and papa hats , just too cute. I think more sets like that would be popular.
