A yarn pond transformed

 I engaged in some serious yarn collecting at the beginning of winter, which had me entered in a draw for even more yarn!
Hello winner!
I collected a lot of colours for working up more colourful hats as part of my demonstration at the National Wool Museum, Geelong.
I'm half way through the demonstration period and not half way through the yarn, guess I better just knit faster.

Here are some of the hats I've been working on in the past month, oh, there are a couple of stragglers in this group, that you may have seen here before.

I am enjoying the transformation from yarn to hat and the opportunity to talk to museum visitors about knitting generally and the techniques I use to make the hats.

How do you like your hat?
Bold and colourful
Bright and fun
Snug or slouchy
With a big pompom on top

Hope you're warm and cosy this weekend.
