Having got used to my double pointed knitting needles, I found myself at the end of last week with nothing to occupy them with while I was waiting for my sock yarn to arrive. Well, having discovered the awesomeness of knitting in the round I had to keep the momentum going, so I thought I'd have a go at a knitted beanie from a pattern from Ravelry. Yes, I do seem to be going through a particularly enthusiastic crafty curve at the moment (better roll with it, hehe!).
Now that I have to post every day you are going to be subjected to every last detail of my crafty existence - sorry!! I didn't intend to post all my knitting adventures too, but here goes :) Last year I learnt how to make crochet beanies, and my teenage son was delighted with his, but I thought I'd like to make a knitted version this year, so here it is . . . my Woollie Wonder . . .(so named because I WONDER who'll wear it, haha) . . .
Here are a couple of last year's crochet beanies which I made as Xmas presents for my Sis and her boyfriend - the terrible thing is that they got lost in the post (the beanies, not my sis and her boyfriend - silly!!! :)) . . .
I made them with some gorgeous Noro yarn - the first time I'd ever used it - beautiful stuff! Well, they never turned up and in the festive-frenzie, I forgot to put a Sender's address on the back of the package - guess who won't be doing that again :( Somebody, somewhere is wearing my Noro beanies - I hope you've enjoyed them, whoever you are!!!! I'll be trying Noro again though this year - it is such lovely yarn, gorgeous colours.
I'll be putting a Sender's address on whatever item I send/make, with it, though - so no FREE Noro beanies or Noro 'anything-else' this year, sorry!!! :D
Bye for now
