Hi all, how have you been? I have been knitting away this week and have an FO to show you all. This is the Lavender pattern from Tikki (Georgie Hallum) who designs wonderful patterns for children and adults. This hat is just beautiful and wasnt too hard to knit up at all. Doesnt it look lovely on Isabelle. She likes it as a slouchy beret type hat and has requested a
The yarn that I used is hand dyed by Annette who has an etsy shop called Soft Like Kittens. She is from New Zealand and her yarn colors are just gorgeous. This is the Plump DK base which is a newer base she has started dyeing. It has 211 metres in a skein and was just perfect for this hat. The prototype colorway is #114 and is a really pretty mix of light blues and medium blue. She also has a few different bases of sock yarns and if you would like any dyed up in the colorways that she has in her shop she would be very happy to do so for you. She also has a video podcast called Gentle Ribbing which I would recommend to anyone who loves to knit and crochet. She crochets just absolutely beautiful things and it makes me want to get started crocheting!! So I hope you all have a wonderful week wherever you may be. I am hoping to get some project bags sewn up and a few toys finished off this week so I have something to show you next weekend!
