Wooly winter warmers

My best friend has a little shop in the next little town on from me and I'm really lucky as she stocks my creations for me so I thought with the arrival of the cooler months I'd make some little hats. It took me a while to figure out how to make one and my first attempt, this little strawberry hat, came out so much smaller than expected:

I think it's only suitable for a small baby but I was pleased with how it came out and it taught me several things about sizing. It's really hard to judge it as I'm starting at the top and working my way down to the brim so until you're about halfway down the hat it's hard to see how big it's going to be. I did however find a very helpful website that gave me the size of hats for each age group by measuring across the diameter of the hat

Here's the rest of them, I think my favourite has to be the conker hat with its pompom conkers.I've just bought myself some pompom makers and was waiting for a reason to use them and here it was and if I do say so myself, I am very proud of the little conker hat   :0)

I'm amassing so many little makes that I think I'm going to have to put some of my creations in my etsy and ebay shops too as I just love crocheting so much. Some things though, I'm very attached to such as my Lucy Granny Blanket and I could never part with that, however if I don't start shifting some more of my makes I think we'll all drown in crochet!
