Two for the price of one

What the?! Two posts in a week? What's this blog coming to???

I finished another project and rather than waiting around for the weekend, I thought....arghhh! Okay. Let's do some night blogging, then I can move on to the next project. Either way, consider this my weekend post if I don't see you in four days.


Anyhow, I now seem to have something crochet-y in the works, while I play around with the fabric piles. This one's a winter beanie for the bub made from Zarina Print. But blimey! I was following a pattern for 8 ply yarn, using 4 ply. So winged it I did past Row 8, plonking it on her head every few rows to see if I need to do another one. Guessing the spots where I needed to do the increase. Really! Stupid newbies! (I'm too ambitious for my own good sometimes.)

Then I had to go and embellish it with a flower......


....or I should say "cauliflower". Dang!


I do believe this "blossom" is over-powering my cute "blossom". I hacked it off right away....gently, of course. It's now living its second life as a brooch. Much better.


Hokay! I'm off to join the geezer watch The Office, the brit version, on DVD.

Good night!

Really, really cute Jade!! I always kind of make it up as I go along with crochet. Your little blossom is just gorgeous and yes the big one looks better on the shirt!

The hat is fabulous and so is your bub showing it! I think a smaller flower on the hat will look great! A little cauliflower broche...

Cauliflower! LOL!

Love the hat, Jade. Is that actually some *pink* I spy?? ;)

Cathy said...

Now you say it, it probably is a little 'cauliflower' like.

It does look better on the shirt.

Your little bub is just beautiful and her hat is too.

thanks for the extra post.

Oh what an adorable hat Jade. I am glad that you took the flower off too, much cuter without it.
