Winter is almost upon us here in the Southern Hemisphere. We are still enjoying beautiful blue skies and summer-like days, but at night the temperature drops sharply. So the house is absolutely freezing when I have to drag myself out of my lovely warm bed at 6am (thanks to my 6 month old human alarm clock, sleeping in is sadly not an option). This is Alice's first winter, so I started by making her a crochet hat.
The pattern is called 'Little Sister' by Linda Permann and is available on Ravelry. I just 'lurve' that scallop edge! The flower is from a Cherry Heart tutorial.
And she is one spoilt little girl as today she received a parcel from my good friend Katherine, who hand-knitted this stunning cardigan for her. It fits her perfectly and just in time for the cold weather too. Alice says 'thank you', auntie Katherine!
By the way, I promise this is not turning into a blog just about crochet. It's just my new thing, you know? So please bear with me for a little while (next post will be about something else, I promise).
More winter goodies to come - including two more hats (for both my kids), and a clamshell pram blanket that I am particularly excited about. But more on that later.
Have a lovely day, wherever you are in the world!
