That didn't take long and I am getting so much better at cables. The hat to go with the hand warmers is finished. If you want to use this pattern for someone with long hair I think I would do the 4 repeats of the pattern as suggested in the pattern but for a nice firm fitting hat I have used only 3 repeats.
The wool is aran weight from Bendigo Woollen Mills and as I still have about 200grams left I have a couple of little girls who have requested one each. The pattern did come in a child's size as well. As I said in a previous post, this is a free pattern from Perle Soho and really easy to follow.
Today was the Brisbane Visual Arts's Community (BVAC) Pop-Up shop Mount Cootha. There were some seriously lovely pieces for sale at reasonable prices. One artist who's work I would like to see more of is Sandra Pearce. Her blog has some interesting information and her website has a link to her Etsy shop. I am going to buy a copy of her book "Nature in Print" so I will let you know what it is like.
