with today being the 8th day of cloudy wintry cold weather, and a smidgen of sun here and there, i have been in a crochet frenzy -- making new goodies for me, my kids, and my friends' kids. check it out:
created with lion wool-ease in a wonderfully bright citron. incredibly warm and my new favorite cowl -- is that what it's called? I also thought it would be cool to make the kids a nice warm cap. I tried to google a free pattern for a cap with a visor; but to no avail. I came across this wonderful pattern from Nutella Dreams Late Night Crafts on etsy. First of all, she was right; I created the following hats in an average time of 2 hours each. Her pattern was very easy to understand and follow, even when she explained increasing and decreasing stitches. (If someone told me to increase/decrease stitches in a project, I wouldn't exactly know what to do...) Here are the fruits of my labor for the last two days...I'm working on my 5th one tonight. Thank you, Ele!
