My Creative Place

This week I finally finished my little blue hat and I am so so pleased with the result. It is perhaps a little bigger than I envisaged, but at least it is not too small. This was such an easy pattern, I think there will be many more of these hats to come. And I loved how the little swirl worked on the side, my own personal touch.

I am not quite so pleased with this second hat. I'm usually pretty good at 'winging it' with my projects, but this one just doesn't seem to have come together. You see, I ran out of pink cotton, and of course it is a discontinued colour, so I thought I would just make it a bit stripy, a bit different. But I don't know. What do you think? It's all a little bit surfie for me. Fine for my teenage niece perhaps, but somehow a little wrong for a teeny weeny baby.
