Happy Monday! As happy as a Monday gets, anyway. The closer it gets to Christmas, the more I dread the weeks flying by so quickly. Totally the opposite of when we were kids, right?
Anyway, I thought I'd pop in and show you part of a new crochet hat pattern I'm working on:
It'll be a zig-zag hat, but the bottom part will be flat. I haven't seen too many of these hats floating around, so hopefully everyone will be able to get some use out of it!
I actually started making a second one last night and already modified a few things in my pattern, so we'll see how long it takes until "total perfection" - but I'd love to get it up before Christmas. It's going to be a paid pattern, probably somewhere in the $3-$4 range, and I might add some ear flaps. We'll see where this whacky world takes me!
So here's a fun story that'll induce nightmares to all knitters... I finished the second in a pair of gloves yesterday, only to discover I must have dropped a couple stitches somewhere in the pinky. Needless to say, as I was trying to fix it, the entire pinky became unraveled... then eventually the left side of the glove became unraveled... I started to get really frustrated and Hubby wanted to kill me.
Eventually I just wove a piece of yarn through one of the rows just above the thumb gusset and ripped everything back. We're in good shape again, but now I'm behind. I really thought I'd be able to get those done and shipped out by this morning. Crap. So you can see why I needed to crochet a few hats. I needed to feel productive.
Have a super-dee-dooper fun week, everyone!
