I'm not afraid to....
Great news. Alyssa, Karen safely got the Take and Replace box. Grace get ready!!! You are next in line on your team!!!
Cathy B got her box today and has already sent it to CC in Texas! GO TEAMS GO. I"ll post Cathy's picks later today or tomorrow!
I'm not afraid to get out the crochet hook you know! When I finished the Wool N the Woods hat today, it was way small. I had some yarn left, so I made a picot edge and then crocheted around it a few times. Voila. I have a cute little hat to match my Keyhole scarf. When someone is around here who can take an image of it on my actual head, I'll have that done for you.
I started with 90 stitches in the Camouflage Hat fashion, sort of. I did a 4 by 1 rib around for a couple of inches. Then I knit
stockinette in the round until I feared I would run out of yarn. Then I did the Camo decreases. Then I realized said hat was too
small, short that is. Then I grabbed a crochet hook and did the picot edge followed by two rows of single crochet . Well I should say I did 3 chains, hooked into an existing edge stitch, 3 more chains, all the way around. Then I did two rows of single crochet with a chain in the appropriate space. Does anyone get this? Does anyone really want to? I think I just wrote my first poorly written pattern!
So I am not afraid to take out a crochet hook.
or cut my own bangs.
What are you not afraid of?
