Something for the weekend

Hello!

With impeccable timing (as ever…) I saw these Markus Lupfer hats and felt the need to share.  These would have been the ideal Easter knits, if, you know, I had managed to sort this before Easter…..

I don’t normally go in for this sort of thing.  I’m mostly a serious wearables kind of girl, but every once in a while, I have to give in to my inner 5 year old.

Lupfer is British designer whose collections often display a certain wry playfulness.

There is no lack of great silly hats on Ravelry, but I especially like it when adults are the target audience.  Tiny Owl Knits is a fabulous example of an adult who embraces the inner child. The Deer with Little Antlers Hat is niche, but come on–tell me you don’t want to live in a world in which that is standard headgear.

I also enjoy the appropriation of children’s things by grown ups.  Carole Julius is a talented photographer and keen knitter who has made a great version of Heidi May’s wildly (!) popular Failynn Fox Cowl design. Heidi May is a prolific knitwear designer of super sweet children’s knitwear and can be found here.

Happy knitting,
