and on and on and on! To keep cool we have been doing a lot of this…..
And on the sidelines, I have found a bit of time to start this…..
It’s a crocheted, granny-square bonnet. I thought it would be a cute addition to my niece’s wardrobe for the chilly fall days (although, at the moment, those fall temps seem soooo far off!). I am adapting it from a vintage granny-square book I have had for a while. I’ve got the bonnet part figured out and almost done, but I want to change the ties to something more modern - and I’m a little “stuck” on that part! It is a common style I have seen over the years using four separate granny squares and sewing them together to form the bonnet portion. For mine, I have added a few rows of single crochet around the outer edge. I am contemplating a strap that would fit beneath the chin and button on the other side. Judging from the weather forecast, it looks like I will have plenty of sticky, hot days (and nights) ahead to figure it all out!
