It's my first ever crocheted hat - not a tea cosy! And it fits me. I'm not being funny when I say that I have a large head with lots of hair too. So hats have never been my thing because it's very rare that I can find one that fits comfortably and doesn't look like a pimple perched on top.
Isn't it amazing what one can accomplish when there are no distractions - like men wanting dinner or lunch etc. I've had the house to myself really since Friday night so in the evenings I have been able to sit and work my way through this pattern, and it worked! I did have to undo and start again a few times - well about five times. But I hadn't gone too far into it for that to bother me too much. At this point I must thank "Slow Living Essentials" blog for steering me to a really easy pattern to start with and which will now encourage me to try more. So thank you Christine.
But will this mean that all family and friends will get "Beanies" for Christmas? At the hottest part of the year?.........
