I am fine

Dear friends,


I am fine - sorry for not having posted anything those days. I have been very busy, and hadn't a lot of time left for knitting either :( Alas! ** But, I am working on a new "dishcloth" (although I'll never use if for dishes, so I just like to call it "knit-square"). I have invented the design, in Fair-Isle, and used three colours! You'll see... surprise, surprise ;-)

In the photo, you can see my first hat ever which I gave as a present, two or three months ago. I did it for a little cousin (a few month old). Notice my spaghetti pom-pon! I just cut short strings of yarn and tied them to the top: they looked so funny! Hope you like it :)

Flavio,

I love the hat! Do you still have the pattern, or did you create your own? And I love the pom-pom! :)

Love,
Josie

Hello Josie!

Yes, I still have the pattern. It is very very easy, that's why I used it for a urgent present ;)

I used a rainbow yarn so it was automatically multicoloured :)
