This week I made Bonnie Barker’s Dublin Beanie.
Found in Celtic Cable Crochet.
I can honestly say this is one project I really enjoyed making!
I loved the construction of this hat.
Done in sections, you start with the main body of the hat working flat.
After you join, you add the crown and then the brim.
This worked up super quick and I really love it!
In fact, I wore this yesterday and stopped by a local church craft fair.
I was stopped several times and asked at which table did I buy the hat.
I recently purchased Lion Brand’s Fisherman Wool with the intention of using it for my first pair of socks.
However, I think I may use it to make several of these beanies to donate to Hooking for the Homeless…help keep people warm in New Hampshire (and it is definitely a warm hat, I had to turn the car AC on at one point for a few minutes!).
Last night we went to a Holiday concert a few towns over.
I am an obsessive lover of Christmas music and my husband bought us tickets to a Carpenters Christmas Album Live show (We’ve Only Just Begun-Carpenters Remembered)
It was FANTASTIC!
The woman’s voice was amazing.
The show was at the Norwood Theater, which was renovated a few years ago.
It was lovely to see the town square decorations and then see a show in this gorgeous theater!
Last but not least, as I looked through my photo stream for these photos I found 150+ selfies of Miss ME!
They weren’t bad, this one was the best:
There is always a sweet surprise when I look though my iPhone photos!
Have a good week!
Happy Crocheting and Knitting!
