A bit of background first
It is mid-summer here
Well by the calender anyway
Our normal temps at this time of year are somewhere between 30-40C
But so far this summer, mid 20’s have been the norm
Now, I know that for a lot of you in the Northern Hemisphere this is very warm
But for us, it’s not cold, but it’s not warm either
But the humidity is super-high!!!
Old saying in Australia ….. if it’s not a drought, it’s a flood
While we are not flooding (me, personally) there has been a lot of rain this summer
So back to the crazy!
I had a urge to make ….
I had a need to make …..
I really wanted to make …..
But that’s plain crazy at this time of year
So what should I do?
I’m sure I heard you ALL yell
So I did
Button Tab Hat – check my Ravelry page for more info
Yarn is Cleckheaton Paintbox
BTW pity they are taking some of their operation of shore and some Australians losing their jobs, makes me re-think my support
Mods – Instead of casting off 10st, I joined in the round and knit the first 10 and last 10 stitches together. I also worked 15cm before decrease, so that I could pull the beanie down over the ears if needed.
Next time I would leave a long tail before casting on to sew the button on with, just means it is anchored a bit more
