In between all the secret sock knitting, I've made two little wooly hats. These were made using up bits of left over yarn, such a good way to get rid of small balls hanging around.
Two little hats for donation
The brown and white hat used up the last of Robin’s birthday socks home spun brown wool, and I even managed to make a pom pom. It’s been many years since I’ve made a pom pom, and I think I’ve lost the knack over the years, do hope it all stays together.
The dark blue hat used up other bits and pieces, and I had just enough of the pale blue yarn to eke three stripes out of it! I’m quite pleased with these and they will be going into the Foster Hope donation box soon.
Even though it’s Spring here in New Zealand, it’s been rather cold, wet and windy lately. So for a nice warming treat I made a steamed pudding for dessert. Must admit that I can’t really remember the last time I made one of these, and with some whipped cream, it was delicious. And with just the two of us here, there is plenty left for the next couple of nights too, so yummy.
