I’m sneaking this post in before I head outside to enjoy the sunny day. It has been blistering hot this last week, the whole entire week can you believe it ? I can’t !
Anyway onto what’s been happening with yarn this week. As I said last week I’ve completed most of what was on my yop list so I’m spending the next two weeks doing items for the girls birthdays.
I worked on both of these headbands for them. The purple is for Caoimhe and the pink is for Elizabeth.
These are a wonderful pattern from Crafts from the Cwtch, it’s called the Hilda Headwrap and I love it so much I think I may make one for myself also. I knit these with King Cole Bamboo Cotton on a 4mm needle and I’ve left them open so they can tie them around their hairs. I will take photos of them in their hair once hey receive them so you can get the idea.
I have some crochet ones I want to try out as well for them. The idea is to fill their bags with these and some other hair accessories and girrly bits.
I have been working on Caoimhe’s Lucy bag as well. Hers are in shades of purple. I’m using a pale lilac and mid purple and using a darker plum for a darker stripe through it. This is done with a Stylecraft Special DK and a 4mm hook.
I have next years list nearly complete and I’ve lots of ideas and projects to do on it but you know how fickle I am and change my mind on these so we shall see what stays over the coming weeks. I’m hoping the Ravelry group continue as it’s been such fun for the last two years. Off to check up on what the ladies have been doing this week.
