First, it's the ampersand hat.
This is by Susette from Knitting Letters: A to Z, which is the most fabulous site, combining typographical erudition with gorgeous textile designs. Every post also includes dozens of design-history and other relevant links.
I am an Ex-Knitter. Knitting was something of an obsession 20 years ago but my enthusiasm petered out when I realised that knitting baby clothes was definitely Not My Thing. Exploring Susette's site, I found myself genuinely inspired, for the first time in ages, to take up my needles once again.
The Knitted Alphabet has got as far as M, so there will be plenty more letters emerging over the coming months, and I'm really looking forward to watching the project develop.
And here's a pendant to gladden the hearts of ampersand lovers - it's based on a wooden Scrabble tile and comes from BrownEyedPeas on Etsy.
And finally, also on Etsy, here's the Ampersand Clock by Infinity Arts.
