Thank you for all of your hat embellishment feedback! There was some great input… The general vote went to the third option of greens and blues mixed together…
I liked the button idea very much!
So I hooked myself up the biggest flower I’ve ever made….
And quite liked it! But green was also colour of the day… and as it was meant to match my green jacket, I had a try at a green one too…
Both are rather delicious…. but my vote ended up being with the blue and green. The big green flower will embellish a future project….
meanwhile, I have to admit I’m still not sold on this hat. I’ve had a few “misses” with my knitting projects lately which has caused my creative juices to stagnate… do you ever get like that? I tried knitting a lovely pair of stripey arm warmers at the beginning of winter but they were ITCHY! Evilly itchy! So I bought some lovely touchyarn merino wool to knit some more, but when I did, oh my goodness, they were tiny and I just don’t know where I went wrong! I’m also in the middle of a boring cushion which will be a present for my sister… so all in all I’m feeling uninspired!
But here is a picture of the hat for you… I wore it today and felt a bit, well, not like myself!!!
Tee hee… while it’s a lovely hat, I’m going to think about it for next winter! By then, maybe I’ll be more open to the look!
I’ve decided to combat my annoyance with myself for knitting so many tiny hats, by knitting myself what I’m calling the “crazy stripes hat” which is a purely just for fun hat involving no particular order of colours, no worries about the size and *ahem* no flowers!!!
I’ve started it off with my touchyarn for the band…
Yes yes! On straight needles again… I’ve given circs a try, but I just can’t get the hang of them at this stage in my limited knitting career… I’ll try them again one day I promise!
Well the sun is shining beautifully, so I’m going to go and have some fun with my crazy stripes hat and wrestle my camera off KB who is trying to photograph Raymond stalking birds.
Have a lovely lovely day, and thank you for visiting,
Lots of love from Alice and Raymond XX
