Who? What? eh?

This is the blog of a constant crafter - a 'showcase' for some of the things I make, some hints for crafting & recylcing - lots of photos and some words. I hope it will inspire.

The Little piece of Knitting with Everything

In the space of 14sts this knitting has
Cables, Eyelets, Bobbles (lots of bobbles) and Short Rowing

It is also made from lovely cherry red hand-spun yarn, me-spun :-) nice and chunky.




Ok you say, Enough already.
What is it ?

Is it a strange scarf? no
Is it a collar for a coat? no
Is it the tail of a toy dragon? no


it is the brim of a hat ... and here is the crown - in place on the wire frame.

Miraculously I did manage to get both those wire-frame hats finished in time for marking AND they are both on display at Ultimo TAFE (as part of Fashion Week).

Here is a decent photo of the black one






and a close-up of the trimmings ...
Bought the paper butterflies in Paris :-) - the lace is actually 2 antique hankies one is Maltese lace, the other is Bedfordshire.
