Inspired by the thought of crocheting along with a group I excitedly ordered my yarn last week. I went for Fyberspates Scrumptious DK Joanne used in her original sample, in the plum. I absolutely adore this yarn and the colour.
As it was I didn't actually believe I'd get started let alone finished. Crafting time is it an all time low, what with our new addition and all. But you know what, I went from yarn in skein (I even had winding to do, my least favourite job) to finished hat on my head by the time the mr was home from work.
The speed in which I finished this project is a great testament to both the yarn and pattern. I simply loved working with both. So much so that before the day was out I'd whipped up a matching hat for Effie.
It's not too late to join in yourself if you fancy, just hop on over to Joanne's blog for all the details.
