Best Laid Plans …

Go to waste!

So much for the Oh Yes! I’m making a tunic top next…… ha ha! Life has an uncanny way of getting in the way don ‘t you find? In a bid to avoid a non creative day, what with my post flu lethargy being pushed aside with some mojo for the creatives i found a simple crochet pattern on the internet for a beenie hat. DD2 fancied one as she is really feeling the cold having only recently returned from Aruba after an 8 week adventure, making interesting and fun international friends ….. My little loon even did a sky dive with Aruba Sky Dive!

Surprise I digress AGAIN!

Crochet beenie, had the right size hook, there’s one better than the knitting aye? Wool, mmmmm a bit too chunky but how much difference can that make? I know ….. A LOT. Undeterred, with gusto I threw myself at the task. Never hving done a hat before it was all a bit perplexing and a little exciting 🙂

The baby blue yarn (looks grey in pictures) took shape very quickly on such a large hook and before I knew it I had a hat. HOORAH. The chunky wool however gave me a somewhat baggier beenie so some rapid creative thought processing, I added in a couple of extra rows for length, threaded fine elastic around the base and made a bobble. Attached bobble so it dangles a bit, whipped my hair brush through said bobble to make it fluffy and hey presto a hat that DD2 is delighted with.

At this point I would like to say if you think her varied ways of wearing one hat and unique modelling is funny or cute then she is my daughter. If however you think she is a few sandwiches short of a picnic then she is my Husbands !!!!

I Had Daughters For A Reason ....

…eldest finds watching me crochet a painful task, apparently I make it look awkward having thumbs that live in the wrong place (arthritis) so she made these Fimo handles for me. How wonderful is she?! They have been given a minor test drive and by gum the difference it makes to me is positively SUPERB! Can you use those 2 words together? English female asking how to write English …. Not good but hey ho Im wicked at sewing :0)
