And it's my own design!

I aspire to actually design crochet at some point. Wouldn't that be nice, make a hobby, something I love doing, into a viable business? Especially as I get older, and it gets harder to run up and down those halls, pushing, pulling, and tugging people and things....

So anyway, I forget where the inspiration for this came from, but it's made with post stitches, and is so thick and soft, and I think it would be so warm and cozy on a cold day. I do think I will work it again, though, maybe from the bottom up, and making the bottom a bit thicker and heavier, to match the rest of the hat. I wonder if the band at the bottom looks like an afterthought here. I'll work a little more on it, but I think it came out pretty nice, and I am encouraged.

Y'all have a wonderful day!

Aw, how sweet!

Aw, how sweet!  Rob over at BoysCrochet2 gave me an award!  I'm truly touched, even though it took me forEVER! to realize it!  With the moving and the crappy internet situation and everything, I only just now got his note.  Pheesh!  There are things I have to do, answer questions and pass the award along, and I will do that when I've had time to think, but I wanted to let Rob know how much I appreciate his kind words of appreciation.  Meantime, y'all go check his blog, too!

Have a wonderful day!

Total Chaos

I am knee-deep in the process of moving.  Right now, it is total chaos.  I have moved most of the boxes, furniture, and stuff out of my old, small apartment.  I just need to get maybe another load or two, and then I'll be done.  But look at all this mess!  There's a lot yet to be unpacked, a place found for it, and put up.  Fee!  Of course, the decorating is the fun part, but goodness.  And I thought I had it going on, thought having a designated closet for crocheting was going to be enough space.  Turns out, not so much.  I guess I have a lot more crocheting crap than I thought.  Has it gotten out of hand?  Maybe.  I don't know, I gotta figure this out.  On the good, internet here, so I'll be able to blog more, read more blogs, all that.  That'll be fun.  

Y'all have a great day!
