Round and Red
Remember my "round and round" challenge? I've been getting myself used to using four double pointed needles to make knitted tubes. I've been happily wearing those wrist warmers and decided I could use another pair. Another recent personal challenge has been to wear a bit more brightness than usual--and to find some accessories to complement my new trousers. Yesterday those two challenges came together in a pretty bit of spontenaeity. Here's the result: Knitted wrist warmers with a touch of red--the red and blue stripe is a crochet trim--and a crochet hat to match. The hat is done with the two yarns held together and 5 mm crochet hook, so it's really thick and solid. And today just happens to be Bastille day. I'm not expecting to storm any fortresses, but with a forecast of 13, hail and a possible thunder storm, I could do with a bit of extra protection from the elements.
