i had thought i would be able to post about some lovely things i had been making but in-between phone calls / trips to the doctors & hospital there has not been any-time to finish making anything, let alone post about it!
poor G has been rather affected by a nasty infection, he has been surprisingly okay throughout (he rather liked the children's ward & was happy about getting to see his chest x-ray, if only we could have kept it for show & tell at school!) fingers crossed he is on the mend & i can relax a little now
what i can do is share with you the hat i made for Colette, as she was the winner of my hat give-away, this was the third attempt at making this hat & it was third time lucky as it knitted up a treat, you can see details of the pattern over on my ravelry page, it was far easier than it looked, i only made it more difficult for myself by using a different weight yarn from that suggested!
i couldn't resist trying it on, you know, just to check to would fit okay,
but you don't need to take my word for it, pop over & see Colette, it looks just lovely on her,
