But now I have a bit of a hat bug and Ravelry does nothing to curb the problem with all its lovely free patterns.
So first I used up the rest of the Wendy Serenity yarn I had left over from the Li'l Monkey blanket and made myself a lovely winter hat using this pattern....
My mum then tried it on and has requested one for herself, so I may have to attempt a trip into the Outside World today and get some more yarn.
I love this pattern, it is utterly fabulous, and it only took about two hours to make.
With all the hat making going on Lillia felt left out and requested a new hat for herself. So last night I used this pattern that has been lurking in my Ravelry favourites for a wee while and ran up this cute little butterfly beanie...
The early morning frosty light and my inability to function much before 10am didn't help with the photos!
But trust me this hat looks super cool, and most importantly for out little lady - super pink!
It's been nice to pass the time with some leisurely crocheting. I now 38 weeks pregnant, so due any day, and very uncomfortable indeed. The baby seems to sit on every internal organ at the same time leaving me breathless and pretty miserable. Although I remain at home for now my illness is still flaring up quite badly and draining me. Whinge whinge... I could do with this baby arriving very soon!
