I’m making good progress with the Aran bobble hats, target 14!
My family gathers every other year for a week’s holiday, 15 of us all together. I have a picture in my mind of the 8 little ones all in knitted bobble hats. Why stop there! So their parents will be getting hats too, I hope.
I am knitting them using two threads of Aran yarn and 8mm needles, which is SIZE ZERO in old style English knitting needle sizes.
Another ‘Zero’ in the photo is the lovely autumnal Colinette wool, called One Zero, the name of this colour way is ‘October Afternoon’.
The colours of Colinette yarn are so gorgeous, but sadly I have stopped using it as the colours run when washed and being 100% wool, it it not practical for children’s clothing. Too many items got ruined in the wash! So this yarn sits forlornly in my stash waiting for its moment, perhaps to take out on an Autumn afternoon, in front of a roaring fire, when inspiration strikes.
