Hee hee…I do love a good pun…seriously though, I finished my mystery creation!

*Drum roll*

An octopus hat!

Much like the story behind the aviator hat, Rabbie saw a crocheted octopus hat, and demanded suggested that I should make her one…that was back in March and put on the back burner until now as I couldn’t find anything pattern wise that was remotely doable.

With her birthday coming up, I resolved to just wing a pattern instead. I have to admit, I’m fairly pleased with it! Especially the tentacles!

So cute!

After much debate, I have posted the pattern up as a free pattern! You can find it in the free pattern section, or just click here. Not sure if many people would want to wear an octopus on their head mind you, Rabbie is certainly a one of a kind individual…

Speaking of Rabbie, I’ve just come back from visiting her in Scotland for a birthday bonanza! (More about that on her blog.) In short though, BBQ at other sister’s, murder mystery with this sister, a rather soggy doggy fun day, birthday cake bonanza, Walking With Dinosaurs arena show (so awesome), Kelpies, soft play, trampoline park, back home. That was crammed in between driving up Friday and driving back down Tuesday. No wonder I’m tired!

Oh, another cheer for the Hot Flash Dash on Ravelry:

Knit! Knit! Knit!
The dash will end in a bit!
Purl! Purl! Purl!
You’ve all done really well!

They might EGG-splode!

Ok, ok, I know it’s an EGG-stremely bad pun, but it had to be done!

These are a little pair of knitted hand grenade egg cosies, based on the free pattern ‘GRENADE’ by Ali Hogg (Cast kn 42, start from row 15, follow pattern as written) and the purpose of these EGG-celent knits is as a little token gift for my dad for his birthday. I’m sure he’ll appreciate them, at least more than my awful sense of humour!

Though I’m sure he’ll at least get the YOLK! Hee hee! I crack myself up!

Ha! Unintentional egg pun! Thats pretty EGG-citing!

Ok, ok, this post has probably become EGG-scrutiating so I will stop there.

Hope everyone is coping with the hot weather, we haven’t been at all, Engel, Felix and Inkling appear to have given up trying to sleep unless they literally crash out, and I’m fairing only marginally better, but that could be exhaustion (see, I didn’t make a pun there) creeping in and making me deluded.

I wonder if I could blame this post in the heat as well…

Till next week, where hopefully it will be cooler and I’ll feel more inclined to actually knit – it’s a bad sign when the weather has stopped me from my most favourite of hobbies…
