An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

For a Winter Baby
I spun some wool to make a gift for my cousin's new grandson. I spun twice as much as I needed - I have a tendency to get carried away when spinning. The wool was so beautiful that I was a bit reluctant to dye it, but cream is not a good colour for babywear, so dye it I did. I used patterns by Alison Williams and Anke Plummer from Ravelry to knit the hat and mittens, though I made some minor changes. The hat looks a bit Cat-in-the-hatish at the moment, but I think it will be fine once it's put on baby's head.
