Crochet crazy......

My Creation

Just in case you think you are seeing double – no, this isn’t the same hat as before. Its hat number 5 in this same wool – a lovely Aran in a beige & cream mix. It’s been unbelievably popular!!
As you can see, it’s nearly all gone now. It was a 500gm ball I picked up in a market in Pembrokeshire last year. I’ve never seen it anywhere else so that might be it for this shade – unless anyone knows better?????
The beanie with the heart is for a friend’s daughter. It’s in a bright cerise pink, shot through with sparkles – unfortunately, the photos don’t show the colour very well.
Last, but not least, another hatband ordered at the hairdressers. It’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 doesn’t..!!) check out an eBay shop called “Punch & Julie”. 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 – check it out – it’s FAB.
