Below is the must hat test run. I now have to find this fine friend a home because like most hats it looks terrible on me!! The girls have more hats then you can poke a stick at so it has to leave our house for a new home.
I just love how the colourway worked so well on the decreasing at the top to make it look like a dartboard right down to the bullseye!!
Photos framed in the background of the above photos were taken by Harley last year during a school competition. The one on the left of Rachelle got among the most mentions of all the photos the class took. The whole class went into a competition against grade 6 children from many schools (while they themselves were in grade 3) and they won!!! It was a very proud moment. Below is that piccie while it was still in colour. All the photos we put into black and white for the competition. Not a bad pic for a almost 9yo hey? No help at all from anyone.
To answer Sues question on what yarn I used on the lil devil hats last post. It is Bendigo Woollen Mill luxury (was then baby wool) 4ply in red held doubled to give me a good weight and softness in a colour I wanted. Highly recommend this wool! DIVINE
I am cruising through my cardigan for me. Past the sleeves being seperated off (its a top down pattern). Almost up to the patterned section of the lower body!! I am hoping to get this done before the end of the month.
Also have seperated off the sleeves and working on the main body part of the 7th 12 in 12 jumper. So am cruising along well with my knitting.
Havent touched the socks I am making since Thursday though, might pick them up tomorrow or something.
I pulled a muscle in my neck on Saturday morning. And where as that side is now feeling fine the other side is giving me hell on and off. I have stretched it til its cracked 2 times today but doesnt seem to be helping (or hindering) it any.
Mothers day is looming..I have no idea what to give my mother (shame the muse hat wont suit her!!)...I will have to work something out, I dont know when I will be seeing her either for that matter to give her a pressie. Tomorrow the girls school is having a little get together mothers (and fathers, grandparents) can go to, so will be popping in for that just before lunch time.
Okies...Happy knitting all!
And if I dont post again before next week. Have a wonderful Mothers day to all mothers of non-fur babies and fur babies. :)
