Say hello to my new hat! I love this hat, it was very easy to make, it is very warm and snuggly, and I made it in my favourite colours - what's not to love?! I found some wool at the local garden centre, of all places - it's called Freedom Spirit (the colour is Fire), it's 100% wool, it says it's British, and it is cheeeeeap.
The pattern was a free one from Knitty. The cable band was good fun to do, and the rest is just stocking stitch so it worked up very fast. I made it bigger than the pattern suggested because I hate tight hats, and I wanted space to put in a fleece lining in case it gets really cold. And it is long enough to cover my ears.
Can you see the poor injured camera? It had an argument with the driveway but the only bit to really suffer seems to be the flash - which we never use so it is masking taped shut. I didn't shout or swear when someone-who-shall-remain-nameless dropped it, I hope you are proud of me!
I received some awards last week, for which I thank Gina, Lesley and Tess enormously. Unfortunately my naughty computer is being uncooperative and not allowing me to save the icons. If and when I can I will put them up and pass them on!
