I hope you are all well and gearing up for a weekend of fun and frolics. Well, why not! Winter will be here soon enough so best enjoy autumn's mellow fruitfulness while we can :)
I've not been too busy but I did manage to crochet up this wee beanie hat whilst wasting a couple of hours watching TV this evening.
Isn't the world wide web marvellous? I Googled 'crochet beanie hat pattern' and up came dozens of links. The only real problem with this is that, as often as not, the instructions are not specifically from the UK and the yarn is some weight I've never heard of before and the hook size is different too.
However, undaunted, I had a go and two hours later I had a hat that, although it was intended for me, will fit my baby great-niece perfectly! Not that she will mind, I'm sure.
I used double-knitting yarn and a size 5 hook. Conclusion, I either need chunkier yarn or a bigger hook or a combination of both. Or maybe I could adapt the instructions to make a larger hat. Any advice gratefully received.
Whatever, I'm determined to make myself a beanie for winter so I'm not giving up just yet :)
I'm off to bed now - an early night with a good book ... what more could a woman want :))
Take care folks, thanks for visiting, and happy crafting,
