Just in case you think you are seeing double â€“ no, this isnâ€™t the same hat as before. Its hat number 5 in this same wool â€“ a lovely Aran in a beige & cream mix. Itâ€™s been unbelievably popular!!
As you can see, itâ€™s nearly all gone now. It was a 500gm ball I picked up in a market in Pembrokeshire last year. Iâ€™ve never seen it anywhere else so that might be it for this shade â€“ unless anyone knows better?????
The beanie with the heart is for a friendâ€™s daughter. Itâ€™s in a bright cerise pink, shot through with sparkles â€“ unfortunately, the photos donâ€™t show the colour very well.
Last, but not least, another hatband ordered at the hairdressers. Itâ€™s designed to be the reverse colour scheme to the one made earlier. The swallow button is pure retro, found on eBay. If you love buttons (and who doesnâ€™t..!!) check out an eBay shop called â€œPunch & Julieâ€. This little birdie came in a pack of mixed colours, but you can buy packs in one colour choice. There is an amazing selection of novelty & plain buttons in any colour you care to mention â€“ check it out â€“ itâ€™s FAB.
