Yarning on Friday

So I was busy with hook and needles in the corner last night while some of the other ladies were busy stitching up a storm at the Sew in.

Trying to get ready for summer - working on this Sun hat which looks a little more sophisticated than  a cap but is quite a basic pattern. Using unidentified cream cotton yarn with a strand of cotton pearl 12 in natural for the main part of the hat and Cleckheaton Cotton Slub, which is a cotton rayon mix with the cotton pearl for the brim.

Oh, and the special effects on my new phone camera, I like this fish bowl look, cheeky kitty!

Not following any specific pattern is fun and allows me to use some of the leftovers.

Today I've been at a community event and generally wandering around a neighbouring suburb. It's been a while, I really did enjoy walking on a different pier for another perspective of the bay and having a poke around in the stores there. No craft stores unfortunately.
Hope the sun is shining in your creative space today.
