I gave my cousin his hat last night without taking a pic. Ugh. I am so mad I did that. He did love it though and it fit him great. He is 8 and can be hard to please at times.
His Mom liked it so much she asked me to make her one. So I started one in hot pink and gray - using the two yarns together to make more of an adult version and hopefully with less space in the stitches. I have started it about 4 times now. I plan on really concentrating on it this evening and immediately jumping right into another so as to solidify this pattern into my brain!!
I will be staying with my Mom for the next ten days, so while packing up I came across a scarf I made using beads. I have never incorporated the beads into the actual work, only used in fringe. So this was a neat experiment for me and came out okay.
I will definitely be doing this again as I did enjoy the creative process involved albeit the beads were a bit cumbersome.
I'm a lover of the scrap afghan. I never throw out a piece of yarn more than 12 inches long. I tie them together and then roll them into one large ball of yarn and I call it my "Surprise Yarn". Then I use it to make blankets like this one:
I gave this to my Mom who has it on her couch. It looks lovely. I used green and white as the base colors and then the surprise yarn in between.
