Vacation over... back to work...

At long last... we have returned from a whirl-wind trip by train to Florence... it was fantastic...
Florence, Firenze, Italia, Barbara Summers
Ponte Vecchio, Firenze and me....
and having spent two weeks recouping I am now keen to get back into my handcrafts... but somehow there are so many other things happening as well...


Here are a few projects I finished before travelling... just had no time to post previously...

crochet hats vintage flapper
Barbara Summers design - Fan Cloche with Flower Brooch
Made with Rowan Wool Cotton - yes my favourite yarn just now... and delightful to work with...
you can find the PATTERN for this stunning vintage flapper style hat named VALENTINA here


then this... my red mohair spiralling beret.... 
with contrast spiral... the contrast is in the different yarn I used instead of mohair ...

SPIRALS Beret PATTERN is NOT available for now.... 
however you can check out this 


which will give you some idea how to make it.

and this basket weave beanie for my man....

still waiting to be finished... made with 100% aran wool...  you can find the PATTERN for SWEET DUDE here includes two (2) crochet hat styles for men, with optional lining for bald heads.

so will need to line it with cotton... my man can't handle wool next to the skin...

and bald heads are even more sensitive....  you can find the PATTERN for SWEET DUDE here includes two (2) crochet hat styles for men, with optional lining for bald heads.
