Well, who would've known ?? Its a hat which I'm claiming as No. 47 in my 'personal hat challenge' of 50 by the end of June. Actually I should be claiming it as two as its a reversible beanie but the organiser forgot to tell us when to change colours so my hat is almost identical both ways.
While my mind was still on the hat thing, I decided to get on with it and finish my 50 asap so I can concentrate on other projects. My first thought was to quickly crochet a couple but then I figured it would be better to knit a couple of baby hats which are always needed by the charities I support and I think knitted hats are softer for babies. So, here are numbers 48 and 49 .. (yuk - don't like the variegation in the first one but I guess it will keep a little head warm)
I still have my grandson's footy hat and scarf to finish plus the second try of the KAL hat so when either of those are finished you'll hear the big YAAAAYY.
I want to show you this scarf I made last Friday. I'm rather partial to it and will keep this for myself. It was very quick and easy - only took one day. Its based on Paton's One Skein Crochet Scarf which was originally from "Stitch 'N Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker" by Debbie Stoller. I modified the pattern a bit to make it wider and used Bendigo Woollen Mills 10ply Luxury with a 5.5mm hook. (Colour more like first picture)
The weather here in Australia is getting quite cold (particularly where I live) so I think this scarf will come in handy.
