What Did The Hat Say To The Scarf?
You our hang around and I’ll go on a head.
LOL!!! This did make me laugh, as did my recent attempt to make a start on some winter warmer accessories.
I know, WINTER, WTH?!
My theory is that I’ll feel the chill sooner than those in brick homes this year so I’ve got a list of things that I would like to make to ensure that winter is a warm one for Maisy and I.
Crafters logic aside, it actually all started with a ‘little’ shopping trip.
Not as bad as it looks though as most of that bulk was wool and less than £40 spent – it really was a bag of happy :)
Hidden at the back were two sets of knitting looms. A shortcut to success I thought.
I failed to remember that the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.
Kicking things off by casting on and doing the first few rows I was quite chuffed with myself and quite motivated to continue.
Now is probably a good point to let you know that two things were going on.
First, I was not following a pattern.
Second, I decided to pop on an audiobook whilst doing this.
As a result of the combination of the above I happily carried on casting on, and weaving over, for quite some time until I got to this stage.
With no actual way to measure this on my head without casting off and finishing it I thought that now would probably be a good point so went through the process of casting off, gathering and tieing off the yarn.
It was time to try on my creation.
I slipped it on my head. It felt comfy and not taught.
Then I turned the camera on to take a selfie…
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA – bun head!!!
Not quite the result that I had in mind but all was not a total loss.
I came to the conclusion that at least now I know how many rows it will take to create a beanie and how many it will take to create a floppy hat so at least it wasn’t a wasted exercise.
Oh, and of course I got to enjoy my audiobook.
It was also lovely to have a few hours of just living in the moment and forgetting about the world.
I think however that this creation might not make the catwalk list and I will have to head back to the knitting loom and try again another day.
Have you used knitting looms? Have you any tips for me?
Thanks for stopping by.
Catch you again soon.
