My first love is knitting, I learnt to knit again back in 1991 and although I can crochet now I always go back to knitting. Last night I finished my second slouch hat or beanie, I love the blackberry stitch and the way it grows after a few rows. It's not a complex pattern but to those people who don't knit it looks interesting and difficult. It's a little work of art made from just two balls of wool, a few hours here and there and I've made something pretty and very practical. My winter swimming means I wear one if these after every swim, keeps my head warm and cosy for the drive home. So now it's a swimming hat!
I started a new hat straight away and I love this vibrant aqua colour.
