|A downtown beanie - Mollie Makes magazine issue 13|
Michelle commented that I may need to wear a wooly hat to bed with the cold weather and a freezing bedroom, so I took her word and knitted myself one! It was a fun project and only took an evening, using chunky wool and size 9mm needles. It must be acceptable because 15 year old Charlotte has asked for a black one for her. You may be able to tell from the bedroom photos that some progress been made, the insulation has been added and now the walls as well so things are definitely feeling cosier. Next step is plastering and then decorating, but this will have to wait until Paul is able to take a chunk of time off work. We have been in a shambles still this week but I managed three more Farmer's Wife blocks: #102 whirlpool; #93 swallow; #104 wild geese. Wendy xx
Beautiful blocks Wendy and I love the hat!! Great to get those house projects done, that too looks very nice. :)ReplyDelete

Your hat is gorgeous!! Good news on your bedroom front - it's amazing the difference a bit of insulation makes. (We've realised recently we've had no insulation to speak of in the sleeping area pf the house - duh!!) And good on you with your FW blocks :-)ReplyDelete

Great job for your blocks !
All looking great Wendy. Love those blocks and that bedroom will be much warmer in winter and hopefully cooler in summer too. I used R3's under our house in the subfloor and it was amazing how much difference it made. Horrid job but worth it in the end. Love the hat and those farmers wife blocksReplyDelete
your room seems to be getting there.ReplyDelete
Lovely crochet hat. Lucky you to get the teen seal of approval! Trendsetter.
