We had another rainy start to our weekend, so I stayed inside with the children and did some knitting. I made another hat for Arlo, because the last one I knitted ended up being a bit small. To make this one I used a skein of really lovely yarn that my Mum gave me a while ago- it's a mix of merino wool and possum fur (you can read more about the environmental benefits of using possum yarn here). It's just a simple garter-stitch hat but does the job and the fur blended with the wool, makes the hat super-soft and lightweight.
There's a small interview with me today over on the Craft 2.0 blog- at the moment there are interviews each day with the various 'makers' who will be part of Craft 2.0 show at the New Dowse Gallery in Lower Hutt, June 12th. I can't wait to do some shopping there!
