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,
