Dean Street Hat out of my own Homespun

Hi all. My friend Linda hosts Creative Friday over at her blog Natural Suburbia. I always seem to post my item a day late, but better late than never.

Today I am going to share the cutest hat that I knit with my own homespun. I am SO happy with the way this hat turned out. It is a lovely pattern, you can find it on Ravelry HERE, and my handspun wool has knit up to such a soft texture. I actually knit this for myself, but realised I look like a total dork in hats!! Luckily it fits Jamie!! Want to have a look? I am going to share all of the stages of this project!

So what do you think??

In other news, it is World Card Making Day today!! I am hosting a lovely card making challenge over at Scrapbook Challenges today, you can find it HERE. I would love for you to play along. If you do, you stand the chance of winning a $20 gift voucher from Annabelle Stamps!!

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It is hot as heck here today, we all feel like we are melting, and are praying for some much needed rain!!

Love your hand knitted hat and the model is such a cutie pie...;) Personally I love my hats, which I get to wear quite often here in the Cape. Can't spend 20 minutes blow-drying hair and then getting it ruined by the mist or rain... no ways! My hats are treasured Thanks for your messages René. Wishing you all the best in all your endeavours. Love seeing what new items you have to share with us. Enjoy the rest of your weekend too. Hugs Sharon xx
