I’m a bit late posting this year – why is time whizzing by at such breakneck speed?
So…. it’s that time of year again when all the beanie nuts come out of the woodwork to show off their creations at the Alice Springs Beanie Festival & what a wonderful collection of talent there is to see again this year – take note of my cyber friend, Megan Jack’s entry… she receive a well deserved special mention for her amazing beanie ‘Under Ones Sun’ in the Loveliest Madcap Category – hopefully one day I’ll get to visit this fabulous Aussie event….
Here are my entries for 2010
‘Blue Mountains’ – A freeform Crochet snood – lots of bullions, spirals, tunisian patches & a scattering of beads to add some bling
‘Country Life’ – is an upcycled beanie made from an old woollen jumper that has been felted then cut & sewn into shape – corkscrew tassels added to the crown to finish
it’s that time of year again – The Alice Springs Beanie Festival – unfortunately I can’t be there to participate in all the fun but look forward to seeing all the wonderful creativity this festival generates –
Alvina – (a friend to all) is my newest addition to my Esty shop ~ I love this little hat it reminds of the jazzy little numbers those cheeky ladies in the 20’s wore
& is certainly a beanie with a difference – the crown was crocheted then felted & the band crocheted directly onto the crown. A coronet of Freeform crochet encircles the head & the hand-sewn glass-beaded tassels give this unique beanie a subtle look of style & pizazz
Size: 25.5cm (10”) high – Head Circumference: average – 56cm + (22”+)
