I love my lunch breaks at work. I get an hour so this gives me time to accomplish some things. Although I do sometimes take stamping projects with me to work on, I like to use this time to indulge in one of my other hobbies…. crocheting! My mother taught me at a very young age how to crochet (and knit but I prefer crocheting).
For 20 years I have made the same baby blanket time and time again with a few other projects in between such as baby jackets. I decided to broaden my horizons and start making other things. I came across a pattern for an owl hat which I made and have pictures of but they are on my phone and I have yet to figure out how to get them onto my computer so instead I’ll share one of the other cute designs I came across.
I do struggle with understanding some peoples patterns and truly believe that people forget to write everything on their patterns so needless to say I find I am constantly tweeking patterns to suit what I feel it should be. I did slightly tweek the pattern for the point on this hat as I didn’t understand what the woman was saying and needless to say the peek isn’t as pointy as I would like it to be. Since then the woman has clarified what she means so I will have to try this pattern again.
In person, you would not believe how tiny the smaller of the two hats is. I honestly don’t think it would even fit a preemie but a woman at my church believes it might. The women at church knit hats and donate them to the Guelph hospital for newborns and preemies. I thought it would be a good idea to donate these hats. I just hope the yarn is soft enough for them
I know this had nothing to do with stamping but I just had to share.
Thanks for popping by and check back tomorrow for another great paper project.
