My Creative Space: Today its all about yarn

Finally got started on my baby blanket.  I know it doesn't look like much yet, but I'm enjoying adding a coloured section a night.

Definitely more of a slow burn project to fit in around other a couple of tutorials I've got that need finishing and perhaps a bit of doll and hat making for a market next month.
Modelled by the lovely Miriam 

I'm not so quietly stoked about the new hat design I've come up with - I think there will be more.  I had a quick flick through a crochet book at the library the other day and liked the pattern this chain stitch made, I just needed to tinker around with the number of rounds and stitches so that my chains were symmetrical.  A good use for my ever expanding vintage button collection too!

What are you creating right now?  If you have time, go make a cuppa and check out some more creative spaces here - inspirational stuff!

Happy day to you.
