Bobble hat

I’ve been quietly adding a few rows to this hat all week

and last night I made the bobble and excitedly tried my new hat on.

It’s ridiculous!

Too big and floppy to be a proper woolly hat and not enough structure to be a beret.

Not to be too melodramatic but that’s what life has been like here for the last few weeks- lots of effort for little reward.

Still, it gave the boys a good laugh this morning.

Maybe I’ll give it to the teapot and pretend it was always meant to be a teacosy.

    Don’t give it to the teapot just yet Janet – it may find a home here, if the bobble goes that is!!

    Oh what a shame- it looks so lovely! Life seems to get like that from time to time, but keep on keeping on, it is bound to get better:)

    Isn’t it funny how knitting can sometimes parallel life…mostly I suppose because there is so much effort that goes into each!
