Scrap Happy – Baby Berry Hat

I’ve knitted a few Baby Berry hats for new arrivals and know I can easily whip one up in an evening – so when Lovely Littlest asked me to make one for one for her expectant friend I was more than happy to do so – especially since I thought I has enough scrap yarn from previous hats.

Unfortunately I didn’t. But then I remembered the left over yarn from this cardigan I made nearly three years ago for my great niece….

Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated

To paraphrase one of my dear blogging friends…

I’m wondering should I mention my absence and apologise for it?  Or do I just crack on and bombard you with photos of some of my knitting since I blogged last? Yea, I think I’ll just do that.

There’s not a lot, since knitting has been on the back burner too. I only picked my needles back up at the beginning of December to continue my tradition of giving my daughters a homemade Christmas ornament. For some reason I thought they’d like Christmas elves…

I made two of these

… then I went and bought a card for lovely littlest that mentioned Christmas elves and Christmas fairies, so I made a fairy too…

I’d bought two egg cups to put in Lovely Littlest and her boyfriend’s Christmas stockings, so I knitted them two egg cosies…

Lovely Eldest didn’t like the innovative pompom I put on the hat I knitted her last year, so I swiped that one and knitted her a new one with a traditional pompom…

I also knitted two baby berry hats for two babies that arrived in January…

I’ve also knitted half of this, which I’d started just before Easter last year…

For now that’s it. I’ve missed my blogging buddies, but I can’t possibly catch up with all your posts I’ve missed. But if anyone has had any big happenings in their life or you want to share a particular post with me, please put a link in the comments below.
