Hats Hats Hats! Sorry if you get tired of hearing about them, but they’re fun to make and not terribly time consuming. I love crocheting especially now that the weather has turned, because I can crochet whilst doing other stuff at the same time. Like watching TV. Right now I’m halfway through the 3rd season of Ugly Betty. I find it entertaining and the perfect backdrop for my craftyness. And when I say the weather has turned- I’m not kidding.
So, I have made two things since I last posted. The first is for a bebeh- our niece! We get to meet her next month so that’s exciting. And this just so happens to be in LSU colors!
I used this pattern: http://mkcarroll.com/2007/12/basic-crochet-beanie-baby/ for the beanie part.
Then I had to figure out how to make the triangles. I knew what I wanted it to look like (ish) but none of the patterns were free and I’ll be damned if I’m paying $5 to get one! So I looked around until I found (free) directions on how to make triangles. This website was the most helpful: http://www.innerchildcrochet.com/resources/how_to_design/triangles_rows.html
Now, onto the next project. I made another slouchy hat, for my classmate because she asked if I would. I decided to try a bobble stitch hat. You can find the pattern here: http://jessicasuzanne.com/craftypants/2007/09/13/pretty-puffs-slouchy-hat-with-pattern/
I hope she likes it!
Also. I finally got some duct tape….Prepare yourself. But not too soon, because I am in the midst of finals. Bleh. Hopefully this Thanksgiving weekend will have some crafting in it despite school trying to cramp my style. And, I really need a new model. I get tired of taking pictures of myself in my creations.
