I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Holiday Hats

I hope that you enjoy this Holiday Season, no matter what holiday you celebrate. I have plenty of things to do. I have been very busy with my new group at http://groups.msn.com/crochetdepot.

So here is one of my hats, a festivities hat. I loved making this hat and as a matter of fact I gave it to my massage therapist. She can wear it properly and she looks very sharp in it.

These are two other hats that I have worked on and they feel wonderful.

Believe me if these pictures do not give you the holiday spirit, I don't know what will. LOL.

This hat on the left I found that it needed to have a lining. I put a felted lining. The reason behind the felted lining is that the stitch is too wide or big I guess, and the cold air gets through it. I hand stitched the felted cap, and once the liner was in place, the hat became very cozy. You have seen my mane of hair , LOL. The Santa's helper hat is very soft, made with chenille yarn and some kind of fake fur or eyelash yarn.

I had problems with some activist like the guy on the right here. He was in front of the yarn store making a statement. I decided to ignore his statement and go forward with my projects.

I hope you had fun, I have been a little distracted, and somehow sad. I am having a great time managing the new website and making my holidays happier. I hope you have a great thanksgiving, I will come back with pictures. Peldor Joi everyone!!!

How cute those pictures are. I love the hats. I think my favorite one is the red and white one. I'm just a traditional gurl, you know. The expression on your face in that picture is perfect. You look like the cat that ate the canary and then saying, "What"?!
