Blogtoberfest 2013

Yes, it is that time of year again, and this year for the third year I am taking part in Blogtoberfest.

This year it is being hosted by Shells in the Bush, and I have to say I am already looking forward to checking out all the blogs of my fellow participants. In the last two years I always found some really interesting like-minded people and I am sure I will find some this year too.

For a change I actually have lots of knitting projects that I can write about. For my first post I am going to write about a hat I made for my mother-in-law, who has been staying with us from Australia for the last 4 weeks, but she is actually leaving tomorrow.

The pattern is this one from DROPS, and the colours I picked with my husband.

MP 1  It was a great, straightforward knit. Although I tried to knit it first with intarsia, changing colour every two stitches and I had to unravel it again as it was just too tight. So, in the end I decided on stripes as just a plain pink or a plain grey would have been too boring.

My mother-in-law loves it, she even brought it along on her trip this time, just in case it would be cold enough to wear it. However, it hasn’t been, which is actually lucky for us.

MP 5

And I found this lovely button in my stash, which I added as a chic little accent.
