I'm in a knitting mood at the moment - I'm sure it is directly related to the weather!
You may remember that in December I knitted this hat and mittens for Dorothy (she knitted her own scarf)
But I was never quite happy with the shape and fit of the hat - I don't know why but it just never really worked for me (I know, I wasn't the one wearing it but I still didn't like it!)
So when I saw that Rachel had knitted one of these thorpe hats I knew I just had to try again which unfortunately meant a bit of this.....................
But I'm really pleased with the end result (and fortunately so is Dot!)
Which meant that naturally I had to knit some more.
So yesterday lunchtime I tootled off to the nearest wool shop and by the end of the evening I had finished this one for Daisy (except for the plaits which were added this morning - thanks must go to Mr Locket for modelling both hats for the plaiting part - he looked very sweet!)
and got this far with Fred's (only he's not having any plaits!)
and seeing as it is so freeeeeeezing cold I can foresee a cosy afternoon knitting in front of the fire while watching something wholesome and Sunday afternoon-ish with the little Lockets. Hmmm, Little House on the Prairie should fit the bill!
And before I go I will reluctantly direct you to this gorgeous giveaway.
Reluctantly because naturally I WANT TO WIN!!!!!
Hope you are all having a good weekend and that my lovely bloggy friends in Australia are all safely far away from the horrific fires. My heart goes out to all those who are suffering out there.
P.S. Are these lunatics really my children???????
