Hi all I was unable to submit a DT project for the beginning of this 2 month challenge but I think I have made up for it with this midway challenge reminder.
I have crocheted quite a few chunky Winter Warmer bobble hats I have several pictures to show with my lovely mum as model.
I have used different colours for each hat, in the first picture I also crocheted a matching cowl.
My mum has fallen in love with all of them as they are so lovely and warm so at least I know that she will be snugly when out in the cold spells as I have presented her with one or two other 'winter warmer sets'.  My mum will be celebrating her 94th birthday in a couple of weeks and I just have to make sure that she is comfortable.
This first colour is an Autumnal colour mix which looks really lovely and I would like to enter this one into the 

The challenge is open until the end of November and is perfect for showing off all the fabulous projects that you may have already completed for Christmas so why not join us at 
and be in with a chance of winning a prize.
If you would like to win one of my 'Winter White' hats then please let me know in any comment that you may leave me.
I will be catching up on commenting later today but I would like to thank each and everyone of you who have visited me and left me such wonderful comments I really do appreciate them.
