I am working hard on a new range of sherbet and ice-cream inspired hats for a future Etsy update, but before I do I wanted to complete some of my current projects using the last of my favourite Debbie Bliss yarn. I absolute love these yarns and the colours, and they knit up to create cozy, wonderful and wooly hats. I haven't found an Australian stockist for these yarns yet, so I will have to order them online in the future. I don't know when that will be, so this is a great chance for you to grab one of these hats that is ready to ship!
As you might have noticed, I like to give all of knitted hats names. For example, the hat on the left pictured above is named "Baby Bubblegum", while the hat in the middle is named "Colour Me Polkadots" (which I just added to my Etsy shop!) The hat I have on the far right is a new colour combination to me, and as yet, it is unnamed. The colours I used were a variation on one of my most popular designs "Cloudy Dreams."
Today I am offering up this hat as a giveaway to one lucky winner! All you have to do is help me name the hat! Please leave a comment on this post by Sunday the 14th September, 9:00 PM Melbourne Time, and be sure to leave your email address or username on flickr so I know how to contact you. You can make multiple entries, if you have more than one hat name idea.
Thanks to everyone for their continued support over my hand-knitted hats. When I started I did not think anyone would want one, so I am constantly flattered when people express their interest. This giveaway is my way of saying thanks for the support!

Thanks to everyone who has entered, there were so many sweet (and delicious!) name suggestions I really enjoyed reading through all of them. The winner of this giveaway is jeds123 with her suggestion of "Coconut Ice." For those of you who don't know, coconut ice is a sweet treat made from sugar and coconut, and it looks something like this (picture borrowed from Taste.com.au).
Once Mandy suggested it, I thought it was so perfect given the pink and white colours of the hat. I'll be in touch shortly Mandy to post the hat to you.
Thank you to everyone else who entered. It was lots of fun, so I will do more giveaways in the future!
