You know, I do love me some Drew Emborsky. The Crochet Dude, even. I have made another hat just like the four or five I have already made using the cover pattern from his In All Caps booklet. I'm gonna make the other caps in that booklet, seriously, but this one is just so nice! Now I just have to throw it into an envelope and send it to my sister.
I made this one using Red Heart Shimmer yarn. You know, I've read some articles saying that yarn was not a great yarn. I totally disagree. It was nice to work with, and it's a very soft yarn, and my goodness! I don't think the niceness of this hat is captured in this picture. Jane, you will love it, I do believe. I'm gonna have to make me one, then maybe I'll make some to list on etsy, once I get to listing things on there.
Well, then I was all finished with Jane's hat, and decided to make another, so I whipped out another little book I had just gotten, Celebrity Slouchy Beanies for the Whole Family, and made this one up. That's cute, isn't it? I like it a lot. In fact, the pattern calls for it to be made in bulky yarn and I didn't have any on hand, so I just grabbed a skein of I Love This Yarn and the hook called for in the pattern, (K, I think) and started in. It turned out nicely, I think, and the size is right as well. I may end up making a bunch of these, too! It worked up in like an hour, so it was quick, too.
Y'all have a happy, hooky day!

Ack! They've gone and changed Blogger! Yeesh, and I had it all figured out! Dang it! Now I've got to learn it all again, and it looks all funny on my computer. And I had to add Google Chrome to even deal with it......pheesh. Well, I'll adjust. I guess it's the age. Change throws me. I'm thrown. Ha!
Well, look at that. It's the Block of the Month from Crochet Magazine. Isn't it pretty? I like it. Funny thing, I click to the download, it's from the Annie's Attick book 101 Granny Squares. I'm sure I have that book. I love me some Annie's Attic, you know. Spend too much money over some. Something in my shopping cart as we speak. I won't even mention that I don't do my bookshelf justice. Should look at those books more, and yikes, the things I want to make.
Oh, listen to me ramble.
Y'all have a wonderful day.
