London, United K...
Somewhat of a departure for me, crocheting.
I sometimes work away from the UK for weeks at a time and end up stuck in hotel rooms alone and bored. It drives me a bit nuts not being able to make things for such long stretches so I decided to give crochet a second chance. It’s quick to set up, easy enough to get the basics down, cheap and very portable.
For the first couple of rounds in the centre , I followed this pattern at red heart http://wwcw.redheart.com/free-patterns/crochet-beret but then I decided to change it up a little and add some shells. After much frogging and head-scratching and a minor panic over the amount of wool left, I ended up with this.
Please note one of my cats, RocknRoll, menacing me from the other side of the window in the third pic. He just wants to get involved. With everything.
