Happy Labor Day!
Hello, September! Where did you come from? Wasn’t it just July?
I can’t believe my little baby is already two months old! This guy is like a sponge – absorbing all my time.
He’s finally starting to sit in his bouncy chair (without crying!) for small amounts of time (as long as I stay in front of him) giving me a chance to do a bit of crocheting in a normal position (instead of over his head).
First off, I finally finished the Buttered Toast scarf that I started back in June. Here it is:
To get the details on this scarf (pattern, websites, etc), check out my previous post.
I also managed to make a few hats! These are easy to work on because once you get the pattern down, you can make it without too much concentration. The pattern I used was “The Perfect V-Stitch Hat” by Sarah Lora that I found on Ravelry. I ended up making two hats from this pattern, but neither were made by following the directions completely.
For this gray hat, ended up subtracting a few rows from the ribbed portion because, due to the yarn I was using, it was turning out far too big for my head!
With this lavender hat, I used Caron Simply Soft yarn because I knew that it would turn out just a bit smaller. This time, instead of it being too big, I ran out of yarn at the brim portion and ended up just doing rows of half double crochet instead.
Oh, and I also broke my crochet hook while finishing up the brim!
Can you believe it? Oh well… it gave me an excuse to buy some new crochet hooks!
