The construction was ridiculously simple. All it took was some double knitting yarn, a couple of pompom makers and the Innocent Big Knit hat pattern. I found a letters chart on Pinterest and I was good to go. I must admit, the execution didn't turn out quite like the image I had in my head but I'm pretty happy with it all the same. I alternated between red and green yarn, and the cuff section of each hat was made using a mad-coloured wool I found in a charity shop a few months ago. Since I wanted the bunting to be reasonably long, I made some white pompoms to tie between each hat.
Book-wise, I'm back to reading We have always lived in the castle by Shirley Jackson. It seems to have taken me a long time to get into it, but now I've passed the halfway point I'm speeding along nicely. I keep expecting a kind of The Others situation, but I'm not really sure that's where it's going. I'll be a bit disappointed if it does go that way - I do like that kind of story but I hate when I work out the endings to books! I'm also itching to move onto something else now.
