“Not your Valentine” hat :) And I’m loving it!

Hi everyone!

I’m sorry for being a bit absent lately… I am writing the final chapters of my PhD thesis and it’s driving me nuts! lol I just want to be done with it as quickly as possible, but on the other hand I am sick and tired of the whole thing, so “oh joy”. Still three weeks to go before the final deadline. I guess I will survive till then 😀


Anyway, since I’m spending most of my evenings in and I was feeling the need of doing something different from the usual stuff, I have knitted a fair isle hat. The hearts pattern is from Ravelry and I have already used it several times, but the hat pattern is mine 🙂 I had actually already knitted a very similar hat, but in Blythe size, so well, I virtually have a mini-me now! lol

Here are some pics… It took 3 evenings to knit it and I have been taking pics the next day to show progress. How do you like it?

I named it “Not your Valentine”… lol

Mod-inspired Blythe Hat

I finished another Blythe hat 🙂

My initial purpose was to make a pumpkin-shaped hat in time for halloween, but as I noticed that I was running out of time I changed it into a mod-inspired hat 🙂 Mustard yellow is very trendy this year anyway… Too bad that it doesn’t suit me at all as a colour lol

My Simply Vanilla Blythe – Ali – wears it definitely better that I would! 🙂

Here are also a couple of pics of the “work in progress” – that is, before waving in ends and adding the button 🙂 I actually took them to test my new Iphone 🙂

New hat finished last night! I will add some buttons for a more finished touch tonight ;)

As a trivia… the dress my doll is wearing is actually a barbie Tshirt 🙂 My parents moved houses in may and my mum found a HUGE bag full of my Barbie clothes from when I was a child, washed them all and gave to me the ones that were still in good shape! Being Blythe rather shorter and thinnier than Barbies, not everything fits unluckily, but tshirts make good dresses 🙂 I had got this one together with my super cool Benetton Barbie sometimes in the 90’s, who had the most amazing braids ever 🙂 Oh, I so wish her coat would fit Blythes!


By the way, the hat is for sale
