Assuming that the days are getting warmer (they haven’t, after a brief spell of sunshine there’s been flurries of snow and some parts of the country are struggling) I thought I’d use some of the granny squares I’ve crocheted at various times to make Anna a bonnet more suited to the warming weather (but still keeping the draughts away from her tender head).
Inspired by a bonnet I saw made by the lovely Sarah at Carried Family (also on Etsy as Arwen Makes – she makes some lovely things so do have a look) I crocheted a few squares together to make the above – perfect for a little girl who now likes to sit on the floor and attack play with her toys.
I’m also steadily knitting away at a simple shawl for my mother. It has to be slow and steady as it’s hard to knit with a grabby baby!
Reading is not as pretty and rather practical – mostly recipes for menu planning and getting my head around being gluten and dairy free again. Suggestions for good books/websites are welcome!
