A couple of us got together to knit/crochet a few things as part of the Knit-in-Public-Week thingey. The plan was to donate what we made to the school, to use as and where required. So my contribution was this granny cowl, inspired by the lovely cowls Alice hooked down downer under in NZ
...and this beanie (which I promptly decided to keep for myself, and I donated another one that I bought new!). It's the first time a beanie fits nicely over my huge head, it covers my ears, and will be perfect for our December holiday venture up north to where it is very cold and wet.
I started thus with my own granny cowl, to match said beanie. I will hook 7 squares, of 6 rounds each, using the colours in the beanie, but replacing the light blue with this denim blue:
The plan is to make one every day, as it goes so quickly, and next week I should be able to show off my granny cowl.
And then, some of you might ask...what happened to The Great Romany Blanket, that was going to be finished in time for winter??
Ah, yes...I'm still working on it...albeit very slowly...23 rows so far, and 23 chains.
I got a bit side-tracked.
But One-a-Day will again provide the needed momentum, so here I go!
In the meantime, have a cappucino and hook away :
