Hello friends and followers, readers and people casually popping by. As many who follow this blog, or my Twitter or Facebook feeds may have noticed, words have been somewhat absent for the last few months. As many will also know, I have struggled with ill-health […]
I had no idea what I was going to make when I stared knitting this. Made from the remnants of an un-ravelled hot water bottle cover that I was knitting earlier in the year I thought I could get away with knitting something for my 6 month old niece purely on the basis that it was pink, and a walk past Mothercare a few weeks ago seemed to suggest that pink was ‘in’ for baby girls, just like every other year…
I had very little yarn to make this with, but experience has taught me that babies tend to be smaller then other human beings, so I thought I could still squeeze a whole but very small project out of the tangled mass of candy floss yarn that I had gathered. I settled on the idea of a pink santa hat, complete with loopy fringing and a magnificent loopy bobble:
It’s a simple hat, and made primarily for novelty purposes (I am hoping that my sister will be able to capture a few cute pictures over the Christmas period), but then maybe it isn’t too obviously a santa hat to be worn at other times. That decision up to my rather picky sister.
