a quick & rewarding knit

things have not really been a great bundle of laughs round here lately! sick bugs have been replaced with cough & cold bugs, & it's been a grey & rainy day, so of course, instead of finishing the knitting projects i have on the go (Colette, i promise 3rd times a charm & your hat is well over half way done) i started (& finished) another one!

little O & i have spent most of the day under a quilt on the sofa (in-front of cbeebies, but best keep that bit quiet - although i think the state of the kitchen might be a give-away)* & i knitted a hat, a very quick & happy hat

so quick in fact she even got to wear it on the afternoon school run! i used 'click' chunky with wool & knit it on 6.5mm needles, the pattern details can be found over on ravelry, it's a great mindless pattern & i love it knitted up in this yarn, i had to add a little of some other random left over yarn to make the pompom,

*if you're reading this dear husband, don't worry as there is a sausage bake cooking in the oven as i type*


  1. so sweet! P won't wear the one I made her grrrr.

    I was thinking some more about your crohet camp, by the way. I know you were joking but I am starting to think that a little bloggy camping trip might actually be pretty cool! xx

  2. It's beautiful and I love the yarn you used - nice and chunky.

    I hope all are on the mend and a bit of tv and cuddle therapy is a must had when you have a little one ill.

    take care,

  3. thanks guys, think i'd like one in this yarn too, it feels lovely, soft & squashy,

    & Charley i wasn't really joking about a 'crochet camp' i think it would be a great idea xxx

  4. Hope you all feel better soon.
    Isn't Cbeebies a life saver at times!
    Love the hat, wish I could knit and crochet, which brings me on to seeing the comments about a crochet camp, now that could be cool!
    Enjoy your sausage casserole!

  5. What a lovely hat the yarn and the colours are beautiful, hope you feel better soon :) Sarah

  6. I love the colour wool you used, very pretty hat! :) x

  7. I hope you're all feeling better soon.

    Cute hat, they colours in that yarn look lovely. XxX

  8. More grotty bugs - poor you.

    Glad you got some happy knitting done to cheer you up - that hat looks very lovely and snuggly.

  9. Cuter than cute hat... I know a couple of boys who would love hats like this. Hope you are feeling better now.

  10. What a fab hat! I might have to knit one for my own toddler, I've been looking for a good pattern. Oh, my, there are some lovely things on your Ravelry projects page too!
