Thoughts from category: hat of the week

the first Big Knit hat of the week 2010


Peas-ed to meet you, mon petit pois.

We've already had thousands of beautiful hats delivered to us here at Fruit Towers, but this week's hat of the week goes to the lovely Suzy from Weymouth. Whilst her prize hat shows peas in a pod, the array of little gems that she's sent us have been far from that, with a pygmy goat and a beautiful little daisy also being amongst the collection.

Thank you Suzy, a case of smoothies will be on their way to you now.


final hat of the week

Teapots, swans, pigs and lots of bobbles - this year's Hat of the Week has been a rollercoaster ride and make no mistake.

This week marks the final week of the contest. Next week, the winners of the last few weeks will go hat-to-hat in the 2009 Hat Off where one hat will reign supreme.

Last week, Beardface whupped Monsterface by 59 votes.

So for the last HOTW 2009, here are this week's contenders.

In Cupid's Corner are the Hats of Love knitted by Tracey P of Catford.

And over in the the Corner of Fuzz are the Fluffies as knitted by Marian H from the Priddys Purlers of Alverstoke (and lovingly named by Gurdeep).

Okay, so there are no corners. And no wool will be pulled. And yes, there is no mini woollen ring where these hats eschew their little capes and do battle.

But despite all that, only one of these trios can win the final HOTW. Fluffies versus Lovehearts. You decide.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Survey Tool Making Thing.
