It was the first trial of the new knitted slouchy hat - not as slouchy as I thought it would be but oh so toasty and snug - no cold ears or head for me on that walk! In fact I was so impressed with how roasty-toasty my head was, I am using up the remaining wool to make matching mittens.
Knitting mittens (with flip top fingertips) will be pushing my knitting ability to the max! The last pair I made and loved and unfortunately lost on a walk - I crocheted - which was a lot easier.
Time to put the kettle on, it is getting light outside - in fact, despite the generally cloudy and dreary weather, it is getting noticeably lighter both in the mornings and evenings - it makes life so much easier :)
I am off to knit and natter this afternoon - would be good to finish the first mitten and get the second one on the go.
Have a lovely Tuesday -- oh oh I nearly forgot! The more eagle eyed of you will have noticed that February's words are up. Have a look at them and hopefully be inspired - some of the words can actually interpreted in different ways - not necessarily the obvious one :D have fun with them xxx
We'll share and show our photos and stories on Friday 28th February..... til then - happy hunting :)
