Award….and some knitting to give away


Thanks to Affectioknit for awarding me this Brillante award. I am pleased to accept it and nominate the following in turn:

Shut Up I’m Counting
Words of the Wise Acres
Nannybird Crafts
Greenridge Chronicles
Nurtured by Love
Home is where the Heart is
Yarn Harlot

Here are the rules:
1. The winner can put the logo on his/her blog.
2. Link to the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs for an award.
4. Put links to those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs for the people you’ve nominated.

I spent a very pleasant hour in my sewing room yesterday, taking out all my yarn leftovers (I don’t have a stash) and thinking of ways to use them up. I had this ball of Bernat Softee Chunky that I bought with the idea that I’d swatch for a sweater or cardigan, but I changed my mind. So I knitted up this hat from the pattern on the ball band instead.

It came out with a circumference of 16 inches unstretched – it stretches to 21 – and is 6.75 inches in depth. It would fit a 2 – 4 year old child. The colour is called taupe twist; hopefully you can see the colour below.

I would be happy to mail this anywhere in the world to someone who’d like to have it. Please leave a comment on this post and I’ll draw a name at random in a couple of days.

  1. Why Nicola! I wish we could waltz around the room in a pas de deux!

    Thank you so much. It’s perfectly lovely of you.

  2. Hmmm…I just happened to have one of those (2-4 yr old child)…she would really look quite dashing in it 😉

  3. Nicola, thank you very much. I shall wear it on my blog with pride, rather like the winner of your hat! Congratulations on winning the award yourself. x

  4. Thank you Nicola for the blog award, now I want to give one too. I will be posting about it in a few minutes. Hugs, Nan
