Woyww #244 - buttons for eyes

Today it is Wednesday (well for some) and that means I am joining in with What's on your Workdesk Wednesday - as usual click on the link to find out more....

My desk hasn't been touched much this week and it's not because of the cold this time. I was up here at the weekend finishing things off and I briefly stopped by to empty the contents of my button tin.

Left is a new hat I am crocheting. It is supposed to be a sheep but who knows what it will end up being! Just a few more rows and I can do the ear flaps and give it a personality. Just above the cream hat are my socks (whoops still not cast off the toe tut tut). Still a big ugly pile of cardi (planning to take it in to knitting on Friday to see if they can make it look better). Next to the cardi is my pride and joy of a Bear Hat. He is called Hattie though he is obviously a boy hat! I love him and he turned out beautifully. I acknowledge Micahmakes for the wonderfully written pattern for the basic hat. It fits Smallest fabulously and he posed as my hat model earlier. I am hoping to sell these at some point.

Back to my desk, sorry, another Zentangle with help from Smallest and a pile of buttons, all askew from when I was searching for 'Hattie's" perfect eyes.

I just noticed a packet of Werthers at the back of my desk. I can promise you that they have been there since Christmas and I haven't touched them. Wish I could say the same about the Lemon and Poppy seed Muffins I made.

Nearly all eaten!

Right, I will be trying very hard to visit as many of the other desks linked up with WOYWW as I can, plus some of the ones I never got back to from last week (sorry)

P.s. I finished the sock monkey hat

What a cute bear hat, and I am delighted you got the sock monkey hat finished.

Of course, I lost all interest in hats as soon as I saw the poppy seed muffins. My very favorite, too. I'll be by for one just as soon as it quits snowing here (grin).

Happy WOYWW from #1.

Love the bear hat. Wish I could run my fingers through those buttons, I used to sit for hours just picking through them they are so relaxing for me anyway. Yummy poppy seed muffins, think I might help myself to one LOL. thanks for sharing.

well dang! That is just adorable - kid AND hat :)
And LOL at the Minions - was a time I would have been making them by the truckload for DD but she seems to have moved on - any chance of a complete set of One Direction knitted dolls? :D
Getting an early start for a change....
Happy WOYWW Day!

Oh now that is a cute hat - how spiffing of smallest to model, how gorgeous he is. Love the button on the nose, what a great touch.

lisa said...

What a gorgeous hat and so brilliantly modelled.

Wow! Love the bear hat, I'd love one for me. That would make my dog walking oaks smile these cold morning.
Happy Wednesday.

Brilliant hat, it's fantastic. I loved the monkey hat too but this bear is simpler and almost more cute because of it. Smallest is modeling it beautifully too, if you're not careful you'll have to make one for every kid in his class! Yummy muffins, would be good with some coffee! Thanks for linking me again!

Loving the hats and they'll bring a smile to so many faces these dark Winter days. I make hats for my German grandee and my DD tells me that crochet hats are a craze there and the BOYS are into making their own. How about that!?

Loving that hat! Too cute for words.
I can hardly imagine knitting in this heat, but its winter where you are, so it would be a lot better to knit then.
Happy WOYWW!

Love your hats, and you have great models too. :) So wish I could zentangle as well as you. And those poppy seed muffins look wonderful! Thanks for sharing today, Famfa.

Finally I knitted something but nothing as creative as the things you make! The hat is great! Love your zentangling! Chri#70

Shoshi said...

Really imaginative animal hats! The kids will love those. The muffins look good too. Nice variety on your desk this week.

Only just remembered in time that it's Wednesday, so I'm really late joining in this week.

Happy WOYWW,
