Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. I have been knitting on and off for 50 years and I recently learned to crochet. I love looking for wool bargains and making them into something useful. I mainly knit for charity. I occasionally knit for myself and family members if I find a really good pattern or if they ask nicely!!

Another baby hat.....

I'm working on two big projects at the moment which are going well but won't be finished for a while.  I felt the need to actually finish something, so I cast on my favourite hat pattern.  This time I knitted the six months size.  

My scraps of yarn are building up and I realised I had enough to make something wearable.  I knitted a white ribbing which is becoming a bit of a trademark for me. Then I knitted 3 or 4 rounds in mauve, 1 round in pale blue and the rest in a variegated yarn that included both these colours.  I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.  This will eventually go off to a children's charity.

My blog posts are short at the moment because this is a very busy time of year for me.  I relax by catching up on my favourite blogs and I love to read the comments left on my blog.  I know I don't often answer the comments, but they are what makes blogging worthwhile.  Otherwise I would just be talking to myself!!

Thank you for visiting.  I know we all have lots to do everyday!


  1. Hi Una, it's a lovely hat I like this pattern too and I must make some baby hats for my cousin who is coming over from the US next month for the charity she supports. I wouldn't worry about answering all your comments, I think leaving comments is so much nicer, have a lovely day. :)

  2. I would love to learn to knit and do some ribbing too. That looks super neat. I love your blog and reading blogs like yours is how I spend some of my time too... :) take care Una.

    Hugs, Ruth

  3. The hat is so cute. I love the color combinations.
    I still have not mastered the technique of changing colors. I have to work on that.
    At the moment I am mindlessly knitting a shawl. But, as long as I have yarn going through my fingers I am happy.

  4. I think about all the warm heads and hearts and smile.
