So the other week the everso talented and clever Julie over at Little Cotton Rabbits wrote a post all about her knitted hedgesnogs. How different yarn thickness and needle sizes change the size of the finished hedgesnog. She mentioned how it would be rather fabulous to make one big enough to be a footstool or pouffe. I happen to have 25mm needles. The game was on.
I swooped into the crafty jumble sale that took place last weekend and cleaned them out of brown and cream yarn
It was proper jumble where the local old Grannies had turned out their craft cupboards, finding years of hidden goodness. Some of it not even 100% acrylic!
So I set to with my thread of uber-yarniness and little by little,
day by day I slowly growed a hedgesnog.
It got bigger and bigger
and it growed so much this week that I even got to change colour and begin the decreases in the face section.
I have made a mega-LittleCottonRabbits Hedgesnog.
Watch this space, I have hopes of actually figuring out how to get it sewn up very soon...
