Friday Night with Friends

The sweetest conversation
between friends is the silent
communication
of their hearts.
A glorious good morning to you all and I’m so glad I’ve managed to join along with the Friday Night with Friends crew. At the moment I am into slouch hats as I have a house full of boys that seem to be liking head wear.
This is how I’ve progressed....

I did a rather odd thing here, I found a pattern and did attempt to follow it. I do struggle with the way the new patterns are described and couldn’t make out what was going on so made my own design using the amount of stitches mentioned.


You could also have this slouchy either way, the pattern looks cute on both sides.

A plain, but very nice fitting slouch hat. Looks a little big you may think? Nope, Corey tried it on and it’s a perfect fit and looks greatI just did a ribbing and then stocking stitch with this one.....

Had to share some excellent news with you all. I almost thought I had won the lotto.....a friend came over to show me a big bag of granny squares someone was selling over the net, and that she’d purchased. Well.....she shared some with me!!!! Eeekkkkk!!! It was so exciting, just look at them.

Now is that not one of the most fantastic things that can happen???? Lol Was for me, I jumped for ‘Joy’ .

Thanks to  Cheryll for organising Friday Night with Friends. It is such a fun way to spend the night knowing that other people are doing the same thing you are. Click here to see what the other gals are doing.
Made this for a special girl who kindly made me a dinosaur out of clay. I thought this beaded doll with a dinosaur dress on and tucked in a dinosaur bag might be appropriate!!


May you have a fun weekend and stay happy.

Cheers, Anita.

Those squares are so pretty! What a great friend to share them with you. Those hats are called 'slouch hats'? I see kids wearing them here too.

The hats are neat - they would go down well around here too, it's starting to cool off a bit! What a fabulous find your friend made and how cool that she shared with you! Your wee doll is very cute!
