Knitted space invader beanie

Knitted space invader beanie

This was a fun project to do. As my husband is a bit of a sci-fi/gaming fan he said he would like a space invader hat. I didn’t have a pattern for one, but found some space invader shapes online and converted them to a grid and made the beanie up as I went along. It’s knitted using Sirdar Ultra Denim and is very snug!

I decided to make presents for relatives this Christmas and knitted this red hoodie for Max. I hadn’t knitted a hood before and that took a couple of attempts but was otherwise surprisingly quick to do. When he opened his present his mum asked him if he liked it, he said “no” (bless, he was only three and a half). He did like it really and got plenty of wear out of it.

I had a leftover chocolate box and wanted to do something useful with it. It was a strong cardboard container, with a ribbon on the lid making it very suitable as a trinket box. I had some 1omm glass mosaic tiles, which were a perfect size for the lid, and surrounded the side of the box with 20mm mosaic tiles.
