The week from hell is over. Ah, sweet relief. Classes do not start again until Wednesday, so I have an extra day to recuperate and recover some of those wayward brain cells. In the meantime, I did a little crochet hat, just to get back into the feel of it, and I have to say, I'm pretty darn proud of it. The hat is from Crochet Me, the pattern called, It's not easy being a green hat.
Here it is early in the afternoon yesterday:
And then later in the evening, after I added the second color:
And the final product:
I am going to make a second one, and I think I will adjust the pattern a little. I already did at the end of the pattern, mainly because I couldn't figure out how to do a "bfsc." I get the concept, but it just didn't look right when I tried it. On the next hat, I probably won't knit the two colors together in the middle of the hat either.
I haven't forgotten my knitting, and here is a picture of the Homespun scarf I am working on for a friend:
And finally, a picture just for fun. My friend Lauren sent me a very nice Halloween gift, and I'm trying to think of something to send back to her equally enjoyable. Ideas (Lauren - if you have anything in mind, it would be a good time to post)?
Well, I still have homework to do, and some tacos to make. And maybe a nap. I'd love a nap.
