"Beauty of handmade lies in their imperfections, anything perfect is machine-made"
Today's project is all about the Carnival, and don't worry, it's super fast to make so you plenty of time to finish it before this amazing festive season is over.
It's a simple video tutorial which also has written instructions for a basic beanie if you feel lost with it. Very well explained and easy to follow.

In return for political inaction, the people became attached to this glorious pomp which characterized memorial holidays of Venice, when conflicts between the big families were forgotten; in hunt of bulls and of course the festivals of the carnival, which served for showing all seductions of wealth, all fads of fashion.
Venice carnival masks for all! During the holidays, and especially carnival, ardor and joy burst with life, harmony of colors, pomp and emulation of luxury.
To avoid public resentment, a law forbade the rich men Venetian to wear their jewelry publicly, except during official holidays and during the last carnival days! Carnival allowed them to finally satisfy all their affectations.
In the middle of active, mobile, cheerful multitude, among the flickering torches and the noise of the trumpets, circulated masks of a thousand disguises in fancy scintillating dresses of gold and gems, and matrons in precious dresses with trains so immense they were carried by maidservants.
In the middle of this mélange, the people were rather good and peaceful. Seldom did the huge crowd have any brawls or menacing gestures. There was no need for police officers or security forces: the throngs passed peaceful and merry across calli, like a true family celebration.
Now let's get started and Happy Day Crocheting! :)
