My grand daughter asked me to knit her a wee willie winkie hat in her favourite colours, purple and blue.

I just couldn’t find a pattern that I liked so I cobbled this one together myself. Hope she likes it.

That's really lovely!

It looks lovely, Ppixie. I'd wear it (provided it fitted).

Thank you. It’s really stretchy so I am sure it would fit.

I’m sure she’ll love that! It looks beautifully done.

I love those colours together. It looks great.

It looks good. I am sure she will like it.

Several years ago I crocheted elf hats for my grandchildren at Christmas. I made them stripey in white red and green. They loved them.

You are so creative! You are always up to something PurplePixie

Thank you FannyCornforth - I just hate to have idle hands. I’m trying to get the crocheted T shirt tops done for the 3 grand daughters now - all in White! Watch this space………….

Take care and stay safe. Brrrr it is so cold today that I will be in the house this afternoon.

PurplePixie White crochet tops were a big thing in the early 1990’s (my hay day). I had a few. You would wear a white camisole underneath.
I noticed in the Sunday Times Style magazine this week that early 90’s style is back in again

That is a fabulous top but the ones I am doing are much simpler. I’ll try and post a photo tomorrow.

That's a nice hat, Purplepixie. I'd definitely wear it, if I could keep hats on for more than 2 minutes!
