the checkerboard hat

so finally after a few false starts and some creative swearing and throwing things, the checkerboard hat finally this evening started to look as if there would be some checkerboard happening…. i started the row for the color change for the blocks to start taking shape, SO exciting! the top of the hat as it…

i love yarning night…

good friends, funny stories (can you say Zippy, the Amish girl?)  and even a little bit of crocheting 🙂  the hat is coming along nicely… i am using this pattern http://www.craftown.com/Crochet-Hat-Pattern–h–Checkered-Hat.html It is supposed to be an easy beginner pattern… but i found it to be less than easy to get started… when you work a round…

It has been a while…

i have a few projects going, i made a cupcake at Amigurumi class last week.  i love that class…  Also i have been trying to get a hat crocheted up, and it has been giving me fits… i think i wrestled it into submission this evening after 3 crochet how to books and some tutorial videos…
