After fingers and toes: heads!

Fingers are busy, toes are warm: all that was needed was to be cared for from top to bottom. So, after a rather frenetic evening of listening to BBC Radio 4 comedy shows online while sitting on the sofa, those of us with warm toes can have warm heads. Mr T admired them “as long as I don’t have to wear one”. Fair enough!

Hats feb 2014The silver streaks in these only appear because of the camera flash: they are practically invisible in normal light. I used a special thin reflective thread along with the wool to make us visible to cars in the night. Clever stuff! I’m wondering if it is thin enough to put in the top thread of my sewing machine. It might well be.  My hat is the bottom one, made with leftovers from the two others. Crochet with thick wool grows FAST! No pattern: I just started with roughly the right size around each person’s head, then decreased when it looked large enough…

Happy crocheting! JJ

  1. Beautiful! I keep trying to learn to crochet, but it’s too fiddly for me and my SPs, so I leave it to my very talented sister. She once created a pattern for and crocheted a turtle outfit for a newborn baby, shell and all – I kid you not!
    Love the idea of the reflective thread – you do know you’re a genius, don’t you?!

    You may find that it works better in the bobbin because it might shred in the needle. Just a thought as I know how persnickety your machine can be at times. 🙂
