Stripes! Two stripy hats and a mini Dr.Who scarf

I’ve listed some new things in my online shops. I have TONS of stuff that I made over the holidays, but it takes so long to photograph and edit the photos, that things will be coming through in drips and drabs.

long multicoloured stripy scarf

A long multicoloured scarf. Someone on flickr describes this as a Mini Dr. Who scarf, which I love! On etsy and folksy.

I came up with a new item that I think I’ll make several of – a stripy beanie that sits snuggly on the head. I’m calling it the Billie. I can sell these a little bit cheaper ($25, £16) than the berets because they don’t use as much yarn, and also I am able to use some of the odds and ends in my stash. I’ve done two so far:

billie stripy beanie in petrol and dark green

The first one has even stripes in petrol blue and dark green and is partly cashmere. On etsy and folksy.

billie beanie in burgundy and grey

The second one is burgundy and grey, with stripes of a more higgledy piggledy thickness. On etsy and folksy. This one is 100% wool – I plan on making some vegan ones soon too.

Do you like the new design?

Also just a quick reminder/check that noone was still planning to do a post on/send me pictures of their workspace? See this post on my blogging space for info. I was planning on doing a roundup next week, but would be happy to delay if anyone needs more time!

    I love the hats very much, but the colours of the scarf are really wonderful.

    Love the beanie! I need more hats in my life, I think. This one might be quite a good candidate!

    That is the cutest lil' scarf! Also, the beanies have that 90's grunge vibe that I also love 🙂

    thanks! i hadn't thought of the grunge thing, but you're totally right!

  • oranges_and_apples 28 January 2011, 8:13 am

  • oranges_and_apples 28 January 2011, 8:13 am

    Yay hats! Well, if you have any particular ideas on colours or anything, I'd
    be happy to make you one!

    It does, doesn't it?It was a marriage of convenience because i had the yarn
    left over, but its ended up great! And thanks!

    Oh yes, that's definitely a mini Dr. Who scarf … but much lovelier than the super long version! 🙂

    You look lovely in your beanies … I bet they keep your head nice and warm.
