I made myself a hat!
I wanted one that I could pull down over my ears on a cold and windy dog walk, but I also wanted a "Beret" styled hat, so I followed the pattern I used before for the Purple Beret that I made for my friend (Click Here)
part of the way, but then I did my own thing! (that happens quite a lot)
I made the brim double the width that you can see in the photo below, so when the temperature goes down and the wind starts to cut through my bones, I can pull the brim down and snuggle under with my ears nice and cosy like!
I wore it out today and I love it, especially the detail in the top which gives it that "squidgy" look
Now for Granny A Day No. 24 - nothing exciting, but the next photo is.....
....Yes, all 24 squares - don't they look FANTASTIC together?
I can't wait to see all 366 together - wow what a blanket that will be - but of course I will have to wait until the 31st December 2012 when all 366 squares will be complete.
Now for class news - "L" came to me today - her 2nd class.
She's already picked up the basic stitches of Double Crochet, Treble Crochet and today Half Treble Crochet's very quickly.
Today I asked her what she would like to make with her Crochet and her response was a Granny Square Blanket - YAY - a fellow Granny Square lover, so we got to work on making her first Granny Square.
She wrote a few notes to help her once she got home and I also showed where to find my FreeGranny Square Tutorial - she was impressed by the photo step by step presentation and said that she would take a look when she got stuck!
And here she is in the picture above - crocheting away
In the picture below you can see what brilliant work she has made of her first Granny Square!
Now for Baby Blanket News
As per yesterday's post, I decided to edge the edge that I had already made, however I was worried that I would run out of wool....
....But guess what - it wasn't the case! I didn't run out of wool and I had enough to finish the Scalloped Edging
