Crochet Rainbow Woolly Hat



I finally got around to crocheting up my first spinning attempt (the rainbow 'lumpy' yarn) into a funkytastic hat!

The weather here in NZ seems to actually have got colder, despite there being hints of summer being on the way - so I can actually wear it out!

Friends think it looks rather like one of those vintage rubber swimming hats.....

I think it looks as if the wearer is exploding with creative thoughts.

Hi. I like the hat, looks...Yummy. Am pleased to see you so into the crocheting. I've hit a rutt with it at the moment and are sudden;y totally uninspired to make anything. Oh, I went up to the market a couple of weeks ago to see you but when i got there your friends said you had just left. Poo! Never mind, just means i'll have ot some out again sometime. have a great week. Say ho the kids fro me.

Thanks Susan!
Hi Luarna - yes I had both kiddies at the market that day & the moaning just reached the level where I decided to call it a day & go home! Please - just come over for a coffee whenever you like. We can have a natter & I've got lots of patterns you might like to borrow! I'm just by the leisure center.
