And just like that, another weekend has come to an end and I've attended another baby shower for a close friend of mine - a friend who's having TWINS! Hence the two hats in the photo :)
Knowing that I may or may not have an obsession with the fiber arts, my friend sent me some baby ideas as soon as we got word that (another set of) twins would be joining our crazy group. One of those ideas was a pattern for an adorable crochet baby turban. How could I turn that down?
I set to work once I had a date for the baby shower, whipping these bad boys (girls?) into shape after a couple days of crocheting on and off. They're fantastic, although I'm having a hard time adjusting to the "wrong side" being the "right side" for the entire crown. I know that only I - and maybe some other crocheters - will notice that, but I really hate the wrong side of crochet fabrics. In any case, they're still cute. I can't wait to see the wee ones wearing them, although they may swim in them for a couple months.
I've been knitting on a couple other projects, some of which I've already photographed and started writing about, and others that I just haven't had the energy to care for (ie: more headbands for Etsy orders). I think I need to take a break from the Etsy shop for a couple months, maybe pausing to pre-knit some things for the fall. I love everything I sell, but I'm bored to death of making the same headband over and over again when all I want to do is drool over the KnitCrates I've been getting every month. Such is the life of entrepreneurship, I suppose, but I'm going to lose my mind if I don't make something challenging soon!
