Have been commissioned to make one adult and 2 children sized ones Shocked

With some of my needle felted flowers etc added as an embellishment.....

Also have made a small version as a dolls hat which I have been asked to do 3 more, for friends...

!

Am quite astonished at the response and am part way through a matching scarf and matching gloves. Did tell the people I have only made this one before but they didn't care....

I went out and got more needles.....and all sorts of lovely stuff.

I now ( thanks to new bifocals hurrah!) can sit and watch TV AND knit at the same time, thus making me feel less guilt at "doing nothing watching TV"

which is an issue I struggle with unless it is after 10 pm and I have been on my feet all day.

I can now sit and watch something and knit whilst feeling I am still doing something useful...

damn my Protestant work ethic carp..... Rolling Eyes lol!

The wool was still on the market stall today so I bought it. I asked if he'd split it and sell me 4 balls for £5 but it was all or nothing so I got it all. Sadly, he said he wouldn't be getting any more when I asked about different colours

Will start a new grey hat soon for myself and make another and think about who to give it to

Well done Ang, it is a lovely colour and I am sure you can find a home for whatever you knit from it....

bit late off the mark, but WOW! there are some great hats being made here! Well done all, looks like you've been having fun with those. CW - for someone that's only just started following patterns, looks like you've cracked it! Fantastic!

Thank you BB, I have been using my time while in front of the TV to follow various dishcloth patterns which have had me practicing different stitches.

I am pleased, and the dishcloths are much nicer than shop bought ones. Very Happy

Three ply cotton, will go and look for what it says on the label.

Nice and relaxing stuff, fairly low brain power needed!

Just finished sewing some sequins on the hat made from the lovely grey wool I got.

I hope the intended recipient likes it as much as I do. I'm very pleased with it

Here is the grey hat. The second picture was taken with the flash and you can see the colour of the sequins on that a bit better.

Well.....I finally got round to making another hat, using the grey wool I got from the market. It's been sitting in a bag calling me so here it is




Will think about decoration later
