The past couple of weeks I have been deciding what to knit for an upcoming craft fair. Ordering full cones of yarn is fun but daunting because although in the long run it is a much cheaper option, I fear choosing the wrong colours and yarn type and not getting what I hoped for. However, I know myself., nothing will go to waste. And while waiting for my yarns to arrive I’ve been hand knitting for the first time since I did my machine knitting course. I’m glad to say I still enjoy it, the time it takes hasn’t put me off, although I have only done very chunky hats… The cabled bobble hat is my own pattern, first knitted for my friend Alice. Second time around it is for another Alice. So I have aptly named the hat ‘Alice’s Cables’. The other is a ‘Really Warm Hat‘ for my friend Naomi.
