yarn along - a little lacey bonnet

I'm joining in with Ginny's weekly yarn along and for a change I've got a little bonnet to knit  - one of my friends has asked me to knit something for a little baby expected very soon - how lovely a baby daughter for the spring. Spring is such a lovely time to be a new mum, my youngest two grandsons were born in the spring, perfect for long walks with the pram and sitting on rugs in the park.

my favourite pattern from my favourite knitting book

My productivity has been quite high during the last few weeks, things seem to be flying off my knitting needles and crochet hook, being under the weather has some compensations. I've also started another novel, this time on my kindle it's called Gray Justice a debut thriller from Alan McDermott. The main story is about a guilty man walking free from court, the victim's father sees just two options: accept the judge's decision; or take on the entire British justice far so good but I'm only about a third of the way through it.

If you have time do pop over to see Ginny and catch up with her yarn along and some very good news........

Thank you all so much for taking the time to read my blog and also for the lovely comments you send me, I try very hard to email a thank you to everybody but if you have a noreply blogger account I can't - so an extra big thank you to you all.

Talk soon x


  1. It's looking beautiful so far and that book sounds really good. I'm a "no-reply" person but that's okay, I am glad to comment and offer support on blogs. :)

  2. Beautiful antique pink looks really pretty :)

  3. The baby hat looks so pretty ... what a nice soft shade of pink ... I guess you have good authority that it IS a girl? ;) Wendy

  4. So sweet! I love that shade of pink too. Oops, I've missed Yarn Along again - Wednesdays seem to come around so quickly ! ;-)

  5. That bonnet is going to be so pretty - such a lovely colour and edging. x

  6. Oh that is so so pretty, I adore the lacy edging - hopefully after the knit a cardy course I'll be able to knit like this too!

  7. It is lovely to be able to knit a pretty pink hat..the border is very sweet. I am surrounded by boy babies at the moment..hehe!

  8. What a sweet little bonnet for a little girl Sue - gorgeous shade of pink and nice gentle pattern. My grandchildren are all boys and of course I love them to bits, but would have loved to knit, crochet, and sew for grand-daughters. Never mind, I now do things for neighbours' and friends' girls! Thank you for sharing. Joy x

  9. The bonnet is lovely, especially the edging. I need to put that away in my head as a possible baby gift.

  10. What a sweet little bonnet :) love the color.
