Hi all.

I have the knitting bug at the moment and just as well as it comes in handy for making gifts for christmas. Two hats knitted for friends and now in the post - who knows when they will get there. It will probably take longer to get to their destination as it did to knit them. Knitted in Aran.

They’re lovely in every way. I’m sure the recipients will be delighted.

They're lovely and very welcome in this cold snap.

They look lovely. I can’t knit/sew/draw/sing/dance or cook for toffee! I’m in awe of the talents of some GN’s.

Those really are lovely and great colours. Purple is one of my favourite colours 💜

Thank you for your kind words. Purple is also my all time favourite colour as well.

Fabulous presents PurplePixie, and the colours are amazing!

Lovely and a practical present to give that will be cosy and most welcome.

They both look lovely. I really like to knit a cable pattern.

Thank you so much. I am going to make a Fairisle hat next.

That won't be easy Pp.

Lovely. Certainly a good choice of gift at the moment.

👏👏 - I’m full of admiration for the perfect cable - that’s something I’ve never tried, convinced I’ll be buggering it up every 3 rows, having to undo and uttering a lot of foul curses!

Pixie, the hats look so soft and warm they are perfect gifts. Clever and generous Pixie!
