Definitely Batty!

I´ve always had a thing about bats. I think they are kind of cute.

A couple of years ago we had a really funny bat on our island in the Stockholm archepelago. It woke up around two every afternoon and joined us on the beach. It flew around in the bright sunshine chasing mosquitos. Definitely batty!

I´m not sure that anyone else would knit a bat hat, but once I had had the idea I couldn´t resist.

 I did plan to have it modelled on a pumpkin, but failing to find a suitable one my head had to do.

There are some matching mittens, too.

I think they were meant to look a bit scary.  However, I don´t think I quite succeeded.

But bats have a lot of attitude. They have that in common with owls. 

Happy Halloween!
