this is how I avoided tidying up today....


I learnt how to do a hat! And I like it. I used the cheapest rubbish wool as I was practising so it's really thin and a bit floppy. And the pom-pom is enormous...

you're all so polite and encouraging... you're allowed to say 'nice try... but try harder next time'! My model was not so polite!!

I don't think the pom pom was too huge although I'm curious how you made it so round.... mine are always sorta floppy,LOL.

Happy New Year!

Kyra - I think it's so round coz the hole in the middle of the card was bigger than normal and I REALLY filled it up. I couldn't remember how to make a pompom really so made it up from dim distant primary school memories. I would prefer if it were floppier.. but the hat is crap so it'll go in the bin soon. New project underway!

Bond - car all fixed and picked up. Cost £0 to fix the problem!

Kailani - bet you COULD but you've got better things to occupy your time x

Congratulations on learning how to do that! I admire anyone who can knit. I think it's a great thing to know how to do!
