Christmas Tree Hat, Lecture Lunch, and All Dressed Up

27 Nov

1   I finished, I think, the Christmas Tree hat for Grand-baby T. What do you think? Does it need more decoration, some sequins perhaps, some other coloured stitched baubles? Please advise!

Christmas Tree hat for T

2  I went with my good friend M to a lecture lunch at Trelissick today. The lunch was delicious, the lecture about Cornish customs at Christmas fascinating, and spending time with my friend just lovely.

3   Tonight I was all dressed up (best American long dress in green and black and my gold Doc Martens, the ones that gave rise to my nickname by the pupils at school of Goldenboots) and ready to go and it all went pear-shaped. The lovely Mr Smith stepped in and suggested we go out for a meal instead to take my mind off things so we did. We’ve just returned, all dressed up, and, as it turned out, we did have somewhere to go!

    I love, love love the hat, but sequins might give it sparkle–and I love sparkle. You and I are going to have to don our gold boots and go out on the town

      That would be such fun! We would have such a laugh… 🙂
      KJ, Grand-baby T’s Mum, has said ‘Yes” to sequins especially since ‘sequins’ is T’s newest word! 🙂

    I like the hat just as it is – it’s lovely. Maybe if it was for a teenager then sequins etc would be fun but for the wee fellow you have got it just right! I have never knitted a hat, think I may well be attempting one shortly!

    That knit cap is adorable. I’ve never tried to do something that sophisticated, pattern-wise. Great job!

    I think the hat is great as is, but then again, sequins are always fun too.

    No sequins, hat is perfect as is. Me too – pear shaped? – that’s a tease. But glad you got out with the glad rags anyway.

      ‘Went pear shaped’ means it all went wrong somehow!
      Glad you like the hat as it is. I do! Sometimes less is just right . Thank you for the feedback 🙂

      Thank you so much! I’m really pleased with it as I adapted it from a pattern for a tiny premature baby to one to fit Grand-baby T who is 20 months old. 🙂

        It’s so cute! I’m not too good with hats. I tried my first circular needle hat last year. I’ll have to post it for you. It was too funny. I hat to rip it out! 🙂
