apologies to the hat

So….. my awesome crochet teacher, Dee, assures me that the hat does not hate me, and I am doing a fine job.  perhaps my yarn is a bit thin and so perhaps  it is taking longer than I might like, but it will be a fine hat when it is done.  we discussed the addition of a pink heart thereby making it a Valentines Day hat rather than a Santa hat, I think that is more along my finishing time line 🙂

I only stayed a few minutes down at Jazi Crafts as I seem to be not feeling well this evening… just tired and stressed about the  ceiling I think, no actual illness.  I certainly hope not with Christmas just a few days away.

We have our tree up, but decorating will wait until Thursday night when we are all home at the same time.  most of my shopping is done, I need to get some wrapping done. but I am otherwise ready for the holiday.

Stocking developments

And so it begins… 2 inches of red, no problem.. 10 inches of the main color.. oh man, that is going to take forever…

and the heel is turned.. but now what happens, it isn’t even connected to the rest of the stocking anywhere but the top….

OOOOhhhhhh so that is how you do it.. i get it now!
