Camden Cap

New Blog – Secret Hat and Sad Goodbyes

Remember my secret knitting? Well, it has transformed into this

It’s the cat version of the Unbelievably Simple Baby Hat pattern by Laurene Hildebrandt

Here’s a better photo of it.

I showed it to colleagues at work who thought it looked like Hello Kitty 🙂 This was a present for my friend Amy. Although it’s obviously not directly for Amy herself, I made Meret for Amy and she’s very pleased with it. It looks perfect on her  🙂

I’ve still not cast on for the Camden Cap but I am finishing off She’s Electric which has been percolating for a while 🙂

Andy rang me me in the week with some sad news. Our old black cat Sabre, who still lived with Andy, had had to be put down. Sabey was very old and hadn’t been well for a while.

Sabey, you’ll be much missed.

New Blog – Winter Woollys

I spent a lovely weekend with my friend Helen knitting and chatting. As a result, and including the train journey,  I got a lot done on Meret.

I’m now only 5 rows away from finishing. I had hoped to finish it on the journey back but as I decreased the harder it become to wrangle the knitting. In the confined space of a train seat I was drowning in circular needle cord and stitch markers! So it’ll have to wait until another day.

In the past week I’ve managed to procure this item for my next knitting project

It’s a 2 litre pop bottle donated by my friend Liz. I don’t tend to collect these so had to ask around at work. So why do I need the bottle? Why, for the brim of Woolly Wormhead’s Camden Cap of course! I’m taking part in the Knit Along this month but the only thing I have yet to decide on is the colour!
