(I’m showing and telling a little early this week, so the link may not work yet, but it will. )
I mentioned earlier this week that I’m crocheting again. So, I thought I’d show the hats I’m making for the boys for Christmas. I’ll be making them a hat/scarf/mitten set but the hats are all I’ve worked on so far. Now, Big C’s a first grader, so I’m a little nervous about whether he’ll like it or think it looks stupid…
The striped one is C’s and the variegated one is c’s. And, yes that is a stack of mail peeking under the napkins I was trying to skillfully use to disguise the clutter of my dining room table.
Close up of Little C’s. After choosing a pattern this one took about 2 hours. I’m debating about adding earflaps and a chin tie… I will definitely be adding a big ass pom pom to the top. He’s a baby and I think it’ll be cute.
This is a close up of Big C’s. I’m adding blue ribbing to the bottom. Obviously, since he is a “big boy” (whatever the hell that means) I cannot add a big ass pom pom or chin tie 😦 But since I actually want him to use it, that’ll have to be OK. Because of the multiple colors (rather than one string that changes color) this one took about 3 hours before starting the ribbing.
I have shown these to a couple of people (G, of course) and they all want one either for themselves or their kids. I’m still a little scared that C will prefer something store bought and “normal.” Too damn bad!
So, not too shabby for being out of the yarn crafts for several years, huh?
Next week I’m going to show the first fire I ever lit all by myself in my own fireplace. It’ll be exciting…
