Yes, I don’t have much to talk about on this Monday morning. Time is flying and I feel like I’ve fallen way behind. The big C is just around the corner already and I am not near where I was last year at this time. And I just don’t have the motivation to get started either.
I did finish another hat. This is what I worked on in my funk. Didn’t take me very long either. I love these two colors together. Although as usual the picture doesn’t show the true vibrancy of either one.
Saturday I started AND finished a baby rattle for one of my friends son’s newborn. I kind of improvised on the rattle part. I didn’t feel like running to the store so I got one of my dog’s old med bottle (cleaned out of course) and put 3 pennies in it and stuffed stuffing around it. Of course I told the mother of the baby so that if by some chance the baby chewed through and it came out then she would know. The baby is only 3 weeks old right now so it’ll be a little bit before he chews on and rattles it but still, she has knowledge. And below is the pattern. I made mine with Peaches and Creme camouflage and a G hook.
Well that’s all I have been up to crochet wise. I did work on a couple of other little things. Oh, remember the two yellow smiley faces? I was going to make a pillow, then Debi suggested making a purse. I decided to make a reversible hat. I started doing single crochet to make it hat-like and then while watching Casey Anderson on NatGeo yesterday (he is so dang cute and sexy) I sewed the other smiley on the back of the first smiley so that the hat can be turned inside out. I like how it turned out. It’s not done yet as it’s a bit tedious working in sc (with an F hook) in rounds but I have added a few rounds onto it. I will definitely show it to you when it’s done. I’m not sure who will get it but I’m leaning more toward Kylie. It for sure will put a smile on anyone’s face to see it.
Hope your week is one of grace, beauty and love. Cya soon!
