Oh No It's The Bucket Hat!

I should name this hat Hyacinth in honour of the bucket woman. This has been a design in progress for many months and finally I think I have got it right, I hope!




I have used Rowan all seasons cotton in a lovely aqua shade called Jazz. This one has been added to my Etsy shop.

I also am yet to blog about my lovely presents from the lovely Cindy, she was my secret Santa and made me the most gorgeous pair of socks and a box bag.



I have been eyeing off these box bags for months now and nearly bought one off Etsy recently, sure glad that I didn't. Luckily for the green lady that my favourite colours are turquoise and greens so she could happily make things in her favourite colour ;)

till next time, happy knitting.

That's a lovely hat. I am sure it will be snapped up quickly.

How lucky did you get, having Cindy as your secret santa!

Cindy is the green lady, but I think I'm catching up to her.
