Christmas Wreath

I have never bothered knitting much for Christmas, however, this year I decided to pull out all the stops and make a Christmas Wreath. I still have to finish it with a “Merry Christmas” on it, but alas I cannot find red felt letters anywhere for love nor money, which means I may have to make them, or find a cake topper that will fit.

Quick Beanie

I have, like many of you, a stash that fills a whole room. More yarn than I will ever use, but obviously need in my life, after all, a life without yarn is a life without purpose, and as my all-time favourite designer, William Morris said: “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”

With that, I decided to make quick beanie hat using Hayfield Spirit DK yarn. It took no time at all to make, I managed to watch two episodes of “The Leftovers” and two of “The Cabin with Bert Kreischer”. Who said that men cannot multi-task has no idea. The only thing that pissed me off was the join ladder that appeared, which never has in the past, and I have knitted many many hats on DPN’s. But it was a quick knit and I cannot expect perfection whilst watching TV too LOL

Anyway, here it is.
