Yummy Yarn

There was a Yarn sale at our local craft store yesterday, and although my stash is quite large at the moment I couldn't help myself .... luckily for me, there were lots of other wool-lovers searching in the same small space I was. Even so, I managed to fill the little shopping basket with a lovely variety of wool.




My husband was quite shocked when I returned to the car and proudly announced I'd managed to stay $20 under my allocated budget for the day. His suggestion was that I go back for more ... but all I wanted was to return home and start knitting. In fact, I've already started ....


So keep an eye out in our shops in about a week or so, as I'm sure there will be some new creations for you to check out!

Simple Hat

These are my favourite hats to create. Created on a circular knitting loom, they are incredibly easy to make and take no time at all.

This one was made for a friend of mine, who recently lost all her hair due to illness:



She loves the hat - it keeps her head and ears warm, but with the loose weave doesn't find it too bulky and hot. I love the colours!
