This is place for me to natter and a lot of it is about knitting.

Today has mainly included....
finishing Mike's sockhead hat.
The pattern is by Kelly McClure and is a free one on Ravelry sockhead. I missed off the double brim for this one as I think it sits better on his head without it.
It was knit on a 3.25mm circ on Easyknits biffle in colourway Nymphea. John gave me this yarn as sample last year when I subbed for him at Woolfest. I couldn't find socks that it worked for (for me) but it was perfect it for this hat.
Mike hasn't grown a big black bushy beard - that's just Bogey getting a cuddle.
Bogey needed a cuddle because all Lottie wants to cuddle is her new smiley ball.
