Flower Child Beanie

I have another Finished Object to share with you.

This is the Flower Child Beanie, by TL Yarn Craft. I discovered TL Yarn Crafts back when we were all having the discussion about racism within the Yarn community. Whilst I have never knowingly not taken notice of a person of colour in the yarn community, I realised just how undiverse my Instagram feed was, so I used it as an opportunity to improve the diversity of my newsfeed with more BAEM makers. And I am glad I did, because Toni’s work is gorgeous.

The yarn is the Kick Starter Exclusive yarn I received for backing Sealy MacWheely when she wanted to open a bricks and mortar store. With the addition of the black pom poms, the hat reminds me of all of the tacky neon and black striped wrist warmers I used to by myself in my teenage emo years. What a throwback.

The pattern was so easy to follow and so quick – I only started it on Saturday night, and was finished by Tuesday night.

It has been a lovely distraction from being sick. I have been wrapped up at home crocheting and drinking coffee and feeling sorry for myself.

I am really pleased with the photos I took too. This is my first attempt at shooting myself – normally my Fiance does the photography if I need to be in the pic.

And f course, mistress Maxine a oget volved hwen she saw had the camera out. She look really pleased with her self when she ‘caught’ her prey… She does love a good pompom.

Anyways. It’s also Wednesday, but I have no WIP’s. So I caked up some yarn to start a new project.

This is Blue Moon Fibre Arts ‘Plushy’ in colourway Dye Dreamer. I bought it back in October on my 26th birthday in San Francisco. It will become a Sailors Moon jumper. I really enjoyed making this jumper last time, and I picked this yarn out with this jumper in mind. I thought it would be really food crochet for whilst I am watching Eurovision since once the yoke is complete, it’s straight granny Stitch, which I can do without looking.
