37 - In The Middle of April

Yes! Again this morning it was in the 30's when I left home at 5. (Been up since 3) So I am layered today. The high is only supposed to be 66. What is up with this weird weather? We've had a lovely spring. My sister in FL said that it's been so hot this winter, that they hardly had a winter. And as hot as it is now she hates to see the summer. I heard them talking on the news last night about it may be a bad summer with hurricanes. The water has to be warmer than earlier years because of the mild winter. I hate to see it.

And I have news.......I have seen a hummingbird!! Only one so far, he must the early bird. :o)

Anyways, I have some hooky to show you. I've been in a slump. But I managed to work on a few things.

I ordered the Crochet Today! Baby and Kids Book. I love it! I have made a booty from one of the patterns. I started on the second one and didn't count on it because I did so good on the first one. Yeah...will I never ever learn?? I got the bottom and 4 rows done and discovered that my count was off by 4 stitches!! I was so disgusted with myself I just threw it down and left it. lol. After I'm done with the bunting I will go back and make another one. It won't take but an hour to do. It's just that after I found that I'd messed up I couldn't do anymore booty. :o()

So below is the bunting and it's going really quick and I am loving it. I know for sure I will be making more with this pattern. And yes, I am counting and re-counting on this.
More green and brown. :o) I stocked up on 3 different brands of greens and browns when I bought yarn for the turtle shell. This is Baby Bee Hushabye Solid from Hobby Lobby. The brown is chocolate, I don't know what the name of the green is. The yarn is 50% cotton and 50% acrylic. It is soo soft and I love working with it. I can't wait until it's done. Should be done with it this weekend. It's for another friend of mine that is just 15 weeks pregnant and due around the 10th of October.
What can I say...a baby hat made from the same two yarns as above. :o)

Another hat with a double shell brim. Told ya, I'm a hat making fool. :o) If I get a chance this weekend I'll lay out all that I have done so far.

And last on this FRIDAY THE 13TH is another hot pad in red and blue cotton. This is kind of wonky and won't lay flat. But I imagine when a hot pot is laid on top of it, it will won't it. :o)

That's about it for me this week folks. I've got to make a trip to Hobby Lobby tomorrow because I need some of those jiggly eyes. :o) I hate going because I don't usually come out without spending a lot more than what I need to be spending.  But I need the jiggly's.

Have a wonderful weekend and may the sun shine in all it's glory to warm you up just right! Cya soon!



  1. We didn't have a 'real' winter but, I think Spring is more like Spring should be. Cold morns and warmer afternoons. Even-so, I want warm. I didn't get my day off. Local, though.

  2. Love them all! That little sweater is going to be so cute. Can't wait to see it finished.

    I know what you mean about the weather. It was 75 here two days ago and was 32 yesterday. What the?????

  3. Oh my gosh, what wonders you are making. I love the bunting and especially the colors it is. Great hats and I'm seeing a lot of pot holders lately calling to me. Really like this one! May have to work that into my time very soon. I'm looking now to do a bobble zigzag, have to find the book. Have a lovely weekend, looking forward to seeing the finished bunting.

  4. I love your projects...the green and brown are awesome together! You are cracking me up about throwing it down when you messed up (I do this all the time). I can't wait to see it all finished.

    Hugs to you and my pal Leo, too. :)

  5. I just love the green and brown together! Reminds me of mint chocolate chip... yum!!! ...and now I'm ready for dessert before supper. If my family complains, I'll just blame it on you, Kat!

    Love the pink hat, too. Very classy. =)
