hook'n along

I think i really need a life. All i do is crochet and play games all day. i have two blankets in the works. both halfway done, but i keep starting new projects.

I signed up for project Linus. that is why i really wanted to learn to crochet. While kaylee was in the hossy for months on end in NICU and SPU and still. she recieves new blankets all the time. I can't even tell you how many cute blanky's she has accumulated over the past 18 months. Then i was thinking. hmmmm They also had hats for the babies in the nicu. But NONE would fit kaylee's big fat head. she was a preemie but not tiny like other babies. So i want to make tons of hats to fit the regular sized babies heads.

This was my 2nd attempt at a hat. The first one i tried went terribly wrong. i used the size hook and everything it said. It would never fit preemie. It fit my 6 yr olds head. so he shall keep it.

i was using this pattern Free Crochet Pattern: Lion Organic Cotton Teeny Beanie . I didn't like the ribbon on it so i changed it up a bit. I made a funky looking tassle on the top in a paler blue color. I used Caron simply soft yarn for the hat in berry blue color. i have no idea what the yarn in tassle is.

My weekend

On friday rob and i took Kaylee and Max to see sesame street live. they had so much fun. took tons of pictures. then we just sat home the rest of the weekend. cleaned up the mess from the kids then every time i got i sat down to crochet.
I think i'm getting the hang of it. I have started over so many times. The 'gan i'm working on now is for bobby. He is enjoying picking out his colors and telling me where to put them next. its fun. not the colors i would pick though. the downside of color blindness.
