Well, losing the game, so to speak, with NaBloPoMo kinda put me off blogging feed. I decided to get focused on other things for a while – got some projects done, recentered myself. Probably good, in the long run.
SO – here’s what I’ve been up to:
I’m still working on exploring the Newbie Level of crochet. I’ve gotten a few projects done (Please forgive the photo layout – I’m struggling with this template and may chuck it soon. 😛 ) –
Firstly is this LAMB inspired hat. You can find info on the pattern here at Ravelry, and see more pics at my project page here. This one turned out pretty well – da kiddo is pleased – it’s for his girlfriend. He was a bit reluctant to model it for me, tho. ^_-
I also worked up a headband last night. For some reason it gave me fits – frogged it a kajillion times before I really figured out the pattern. Go figure. Anyhoo, while it’s far from perfect, it’s done and I like it. I figure I’ll do more soon.
The pattern (Trebel Crochet Headband) uses just a very little yarn. I can see using project scraps to make more of these. In this case, I used some left over Peaches & Creme from a Christmas present project. (No more information on *that* one right now. Ahem.)
I also frogged a hat I was working on for the other half. He’s finicky. 😛 So, as he likes the yarn I am using, but didn’t like the way the hat was shaping up, I frogged the whole thing. Blech. No fun, frogging an almost done project. Ah well, I have some ideas for creating a Fabulous Hat for the man. We shall see.
I’ve been contemplating picking up knitting needles again. I’ve just been a little intimidated – the last few times I’ve tried, I’ve come away with aching hands and wrists. Guess we’ll see, huh? o.O I’m also working on a few small projects for Christmas.
Oh, I also discovered the most awesome vegan peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe, but I believe I’ll leave that for the next post. 😉
Be well, y’all!
