Making Hats

 Barbara's given me the thumbs up on the new design and fit for this year's hat so I've been busy working on them in my spare time - work is busy now at this time of year (and will continue to be pretty bonkers for the next month!) - but my crochet helps me to relax/unwind so it's great to have a big 'project' to be working on.
This is my pattern (such as it is) - it makes sense to me but I don't know if anyone else could follow it (?) I've just started on hat number six already; they're quite slow to make and use a LOT of the wool. Each hat takes over 200g of wool but I still should have enough left over to make a few pairs of matching wrist warmers if they want them.

I'm not sure if Barbara still wants me to make plain hats (in a different colour) for the male artists/partners but in the meantime I'm concentrating on these 'fancy' blue ones.

I was thinking about going out for a ride on my bike this afternoon as I'm off work but I'm just too tired so I sat out in the garden instead :)

The garden is like a jungle this year but I'm hoping to tackle it in the Autumn! I can't wait for the black berries to ripen - the raspberries have been disappointing this year as it has rained so much that a lot of them have turned mouldy. Hopefully we'll have a better crop of blackberries.
