Eek! the first Saturday arrived very quickly!
OK - so this is not a very well thought out gift at the moment. I bought the yarn at the knit and natter yesterday (wool shops should be banned from holding k&n groups - just for the benefit of my purse!)
The yarn was in the sale tub at £1.85 - and, well,....to tell the truth, my mum bought it for me....
I came home with a pile of ideas and very excited to get started, then all the idea's either fell out of my head, or started to sound to complicated, or boring etc, so in the end I just cast on 100 stitches on my DPNS and set off.
It has organically transformed itself in my head into a hat - a spiral hat with bobbles (just learned how to do them) and on top it is going to have i-cord tentacles and even perhaps some crocheted flowers....
so - people I want to to open a Christmas present and say "er...thanks...that's er...really thoughtful er....thanks?"
