Baby Bonnet Knitting Patterns I want to try

16 baby bonnet knitting patterns that I personally want to knit.  A baby bonnet is a baby hat but unlike a baby hat or beanie, it has a soft head covering for babies that cover the hair and ears but not the forehead. It has a unique shape and is usually fastened to the head with cords. It is also not as tight a fit as a beanie. And I think it provides more shade than a beanie even though it doesn’t have a brim.

Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier – film adaptations

I was surfing Youtube when I happened upon the 1997 TV adaptation of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. The full length version. I remember trying to read this novel when I was a teenager. I couldn’t finish it. So, I decided that I could at least watch a film adaptation. The 1997 adaptation starts Emilia Fox as the young wife. It wasn’t too bad. I did a little digging around and discover that Rebecca has been adapted several times, the earliest being 1940 starring Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine. Besides…

Fingerless Gloves Knitting Pattern Ideas You Should Try

Compilation of fingerless gloves knitting pattern ideas covering a whole range of construction techniques, with and without thumb gussets.

Fingerless gloves can be knitted up flat or in the round.  The thumb gusset can take different forms…
