Golden Hands Indeed
The above photo is not my head, it's a slinky '70's mama from my Golden Hands book, issue 1. I do wish I had sleek hair and gamine features like her, instead I have a rather unruly bouffant mop, which is in between short and long - the danger zone where bobby pins are called upon in great number.
The reason for this pic is that on the previously mentioned holiday, I crocheted myself this hat in cherry red wool. Such an instant gratification project. And, may I say, so refreshing to make something just because, just for me - no worrying about costing, markup, swing tags, schlepping it about to shops etc.
I hereby resolve to go through my complete set of Golden Hands (yes I am lording it about a bit), issue by issue, and make whatever I like. How liberating!
