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…

My new hat

definitely crocheting a hat.. new colors.. purple and teal.. thought I would try something new 🙂  it will be a checkerboard pattern.. sort of a challenge with some stitch counting and color changing, but nothing too crazy, just single crochet all around.  it was Knit Night at Jazi Crafts tonight.  lots of awesome people to hang…
