Hey knitting friends

I need something knitted, I have instructions and a picture of what it is supposed to look like...... just need to find someone that's handy with the old knitting needles.

Any takers?

I need it for Christmas too if anyone wants to take up the challenge.... will pay the going rate

Thanks for your help guys, if you want to look at the pattern first before signing up, PM me.

I've heard RhinosoRoss mention knitting a few times... perhaps you can ask him? ;)

Si, when i saw you'd responded I thought you were confessing to new tallents!

Is it a large item or small. I do knit but prefer little things I can finish quickly.

it is a woolly hat

The instructions say it has to be done on circular needles, if you can follow patterns I am sure it is easy.... it's got a bobble on top and ear flaps

does that help?

thanks for all your replies too!

I am a knitter-Am wearing my latest scarf as I type-freezing here!
let me see the pattern and I will let you know, knit circular needle hats but haven't done ear flaps yet so I wouldn't charge you anything other than your costs http://www.craftsforum.co.uk/images/icons/icon7.gif

That's very kind of you to reply; to be honest the ear flaps look like the easiest bit. I will PM you the details and then you can make your decision

Thanks so much
