What started out as a scarf that was actually very pretty, ended up as a hood. I started this quite a while ago and it was stashed away because I was very far along on it when I noticed that I had dropped a couple of stitches somehow at the beginning and didn't realize it. That end was wider than the the end I was working on. So I got disgusted and put it away to frog another day.
I've been at crocheting odds lately and I decided I would get it out and frog it. But when I got it out I looked at it and an idea hit me. I wondered if I could make a hood of some sort out of it. I really didn't want to frog it because I loved the stitch on it. I had done a dc, sc in one st, sk a st. The fabric created from that was gorgeous. This pic below doesn't do it justice and the lighting is horrible huh?
I skyped with Kylie last night and showed her and she wants to borrow it for her Little Red Riding Hood costume for Halloween. :o) We did homework last night. That is one smart little cookie. She had a writing assignment where she had a picture of a snowman, a child and a bird. Her assignment was to make sentences, at least 7, about the picture. The first two had to tell about the beginning of what was going on (setting it up), the second two about the sequence, or next as she put it, of what happened next. Then two sentences in conclusion and then one for the end. She ended up having 9 sentences and she didn't need much help from me except for the spelling of a few words but I was impressed. For a seven year old I think she's way ahead of where I was at that age. That I can remember anyways. I told her she was a very good writer and asked her was that what she wanted to do when she grew up. She said yes, that she'd already written a few stories. She read me one that she wrote about her whole family being whisked away by aliens. It was pretty good too. She said she wasn't done with it yet. I can't wait to hear the ending. :o)
Well that's about it for me for today. Not sure if I'll be able to post tomorrow or not. Sure has been busy in work land lately. It's all good. :o)
I hope life with you is good and it stays that way!! Cya soon.
