a little bit horny

I’ve been asked to make a whole batch of rhino beanies, in turquoise with white horns. I would have thought grey would be better but it IS a gorgeous shade of turquoise, and I guess will complement the pink elephants and the red herrings. The cotton is all Vinni’s, of course.

I wanted to take these pics late last night and Carol was already asleep, so I had to wake her. That’s why she’s a bit blurry-eyed.

I had help.  After two very rushed and pathetic attempts at a horn, I decided to look-see if someone else had already invented this wheel.  Vielen dank, Diana.  You saved my sanity.

And for every beanie I make, I wish that fifty rhino poachers could be caught and strung up. I won’t post pics of the horrific images that you’ll find on Save the Rhino, but there are some vile people out there whose cruelty is beyond understanding.

In the meantime, I have a market tomorrow to prepare for, so I’ll be off. Hope you all have a marvellous weekend. x
