yes my dear friends, i have tried to make a hat, and this is the result. the plan was to make it using this pattern...but then i remembered...this hat is for irenesol's project...hats for ladies with cancer..and i guess lots of holes in the hat isn't the right ting....so i ended up with this hat instead...which i love. it's made with king cole mirage dk..and i absolutely love the feeling of this wool. i have lots left of it..and will make another hat for Catriona and one for myself too;)
that's how much i love it, and the real tuva hat is an easy knit..i did this one in an evening, and i could make another couple just as fast.
oh ladies, i do have an update on my marius jumper....now i need to put the pieces together..because i have finished!!! well, you know i will do the steeking, then i have to sew the sleeves in and also join the shoulders..and then i kan knit the neck bit. and THEN it's finished. i have asked my mother in law if i can use her sewing machine, and i hope i can do so next week.
that's why i am knitting these smaller projects. i have started knitting a scarf for my uncle..and it's not a double knitted scarf..it's one of these triangular scarves...the ones that nan has all over her shop..people in glasgow..you know which one it is?
well, i just realise..its way past lunchtime, and if am going to get catriona to nursery on time..i better get a move on.
have a great weekend my friends! hope to see you soon!
