Modelled by K, of course, but winging it's way to New Zealand as we speak - here is the completed hat for our friends' daughter Bethany. She is just about six months younger than K and turned two last week, so firstly I am to be slapped for being late with her gift (as it will take a week to get there), but I hope it will come in handy as apparently the weather is turning colder now. The rose is the original decoration from the pattern, but I had a hunt around and found the fabulous
Moosey's Country Garden blog to make sure it was actually in season there at the moment. Actually I would have liked to do this in peach but I'm completely broke and can't afford any more yarn at the moment. Hey ho - it looks good in yellow too!
I finished another "thing to put away" last night which I can't show any pics of yet - it is a bit frustrating making gifts and not being able to show them off! Although neither are quite finished, both need pressing and the last embellishment putting on (are you intrigued or bored by this?!).
Tonight is a D-day of sorts - it's time to get out the cotton angora and start making a shrug for myself. I am a bit nervous about making this even in the biggest size pattern as I am not a slim person and I'm a bit worried it won't fit. Still, it is the most gorgeous purple and if it doesn't fit me I'm sue someone else would like it (or it'll end up in K's dressing up box!).
