Catch Ups.....

Hello my lovely friends, long time no blogging seems to be my habit these days. I have missed visiting everyone and hope to catch up on all your posts in the near future.  The home renovations are nearly finished and I have moved into my new bedroom and settled in nicely. The kids have all moved into their various new rooms too and one room downstairs has become a gym for  them. My new craft room is almost there too. I have moved everything in except the sewing machines as I don't have a table yet. Hopefully will sort that out soon.

I have been knitting and crocheting quite a bit for swaps and/or test knits. I will just show you one this post and hopefully add some more later.

I did another test knit for Mymymy Knitting, a gorgeous slouch called Slouch in Motion in 10ply. You can check out her designs here on Ravelry. This pattern is available already in 8ply and the 10ply version should be up for purchase very soon.

I made the small adult size 55cm head circumference. I used about 85grams (Just under 2 50g balls) of Cleckheaton Country Naturals in 10ply. Absolutely lovely yarn to knit with.

This slouch is reversible too but sadly I forgot to take pics the other way round. Both sides look really effective with a slight different look to the pattern panel.

We love it, we do. :-) Gorgeous Gorgeous hat. I see another one coming up real soon in our future.

Will try and write another post later today but for now I must get stuck into some house work and finish a test crochet project I have on the go. Busy Busy Busy as usual. Lots of love and hugs to you all.


  1. Where'd my comment go????

    My granddaughter loves slouch hats! I can't wear them - they pop right off my head.

  2. Ooh! Coveting! Please take pics of the remodeling when it's all done. I wanna see. How cool to have a gym and a craft room.
