Another hat

I have had some success with my new Japanese crochet book that I mentioned in my last post. I managed to make Isla-Rose a new hat to match her new winter coat.

The diagrams in the book were fairly easy to understand, it helped to have a list of the symbols in front of me with their meanings. I guessed at the hook size, using one that I had used previously to make Isla-Rose a hat.

I have also had an order this week for some little newborn booties, here they are already to be wrapped and posted.

So cute.. It only seems like last week when I was making this sort of thing for Isla, where does the time go? My little baby is growing up so fast, so much faster than the other two. At 18mths she is running about, talking, using a fork and spoon and is now almost potty trained, this means no more nappies or bottles, and her cot is being made into a bed at the weekend, all the baby things vanishing out of the house, on the plus side at least I can go back to using a lady like handbag instead of an over sized holdall, as all I need to take out with me is a pack of wipes and a spare pair of pants ( for Isla not me!!)

Goodies have been received in the post this week,  lucky, lucky me, I won a give away last week from the wonderful Clare at Green frog crafts. Look at all the goodies I got..

The pink heart was quickly grabbed by Lucie and is now hanging on the wardrobe door of the girls bedroom. Look at those wonderful shiny pretty buttons!!
Thank you Clare I love my gifts.

I will wish you all a great weekend, I know it's only Thursday but I have another hectic few days taxiing the kids around and probably will not manage to sit down, never mind switch the laptop on.
Speak soon xx

Love the hat and the colour is gorgeous, I'd like one myself!

Little man gets in with us too, it's so much easier isn't it.
Would be easier if he wasn't such a restless sleeper though, I wake up feeling like I've done 5 rounds with Mike Tyson lol.

Hi, I love that hat! I so much want to learn how to crochet properly, but I don't seem to get and two girlfriends are forming a crafting club, and one of the is an expert of granny squares. Will hang on her.. Thanks for visiting me!

Hi Jacey! I see you like the Japanese craft books, too! I have discovered them in the summer and have been obsessed with them since. I have 3 so far, I bought them on Ebay. Where do you buy yours?
