I have 2 more S.P.E.W. Hats to share. This one was knitted by one of the gals in my weekly knitting group--she knit it up in just two hours. It's her own pattern.
It took me signficantly longer to knit up this hat. Why? I am a slow knitter and I suffer from knitter's ADD--I usually will work on 2 or 3 projects at a time--I mean they are in my lap and I'll do a row or so of each. It's amazing I get any knitting completed.
I modified the Bzzz Hat from Stitch N' Bitch Nation into this preemie sized hat--it may fit a large preemie...I don't know--about 12 inch head unstretched. My kids all had 15 inch (or so) heads.
I am not sure what sort of hat I am going to start next--I am toying with a pixie or a wizard's pointy hat--perhaps a hat with ears...
For the newbies (welcome by the way), I plan to collect and knit as many hats or other smallish type of garments that one would think would befit a House Elf before Book 7 comes out and then donate the whole lot to my local Children's Hospital.
