A new hat for Mum

Friday, 15 January 2010
Ive been busy making a new hat for my Mum. Knitting odd rows between work and sleep. I finished it today. Its a lovely pale wedgwood (Mum has beautiful blue grey eyes) with a contrast camel which I used for some simple stripes. Just a nice plain round pull on hat to keep Mums ears warm!

Now I am determinded to finish this started nearly a year ago now. But Im near to completion so pictures of the finished cardi will be on here soon. Its certainly the weather for it!

As much as I want to start using my newly redyed wool for the aran jumper I am making myself NOT start it yet! I also want to start another crochet blanket, in pure shetland wool this time. Ive got literally bags and bags of 4ply shetland which I can easily double up and criochet as DK. Warm perfection!


  1. I love the colours of the hat. lucky Mum! x

  2. oooo bags of Sheltland...drooling over here....I LOVE that wool. Happy happy...a.xx

  3. I do love the way you describe colours, 'pale wedgewood' and 'camel' I love it!! My mum calls that colour 'biscuit'. Will we see your mum wearing in when it's finished?x
