Two more


Just when I thought I was done, I received two more hat requests. This one is for Max.

This is a second one for Kole, our middle school science teacher. Kole has a green and gold one, but he also wanted one in grey. I was happy to comply!

This morning we had a group photo taken. I can see that three of the girls are not wearing their hats. I'm guessing they didn't want to mess up their hair! Only about half of the kids showed up for the picture. A before school picture must have been a little too much. ;-)

Spring break

Right before spring break, I had one more hat request from Danny. He asked on Thursday, and I managed to finish it in time to give it to him at lunchtime on Friday. He was very pleased!

Yesterday was our Tollway Tatters meeting, and during that time I managed to tat one and a half button ornaments. I finished the second ornament after lunch. 

So, what did I do with my spring break?

I worked on a waffle stitch afghan using the leftovers from all the hats I've made over the past few months. One of the girls in crochet club asked if I could make an afghan in a week. I didn't really think I could, but I gave it a try. I have 9" to go to make it the size I want. 

So, the answer is no. I cannot finish an afghan in a week. Maybe two?

I finally finished with my hat requests! This one is for Blake.

Skyler requested purple.

Owen requested aubergine.

Abby requested aubergine. Now I have to figure out what to do with all the leftover yarn!

Crochet crazy

I've been crocheting like crazy lately, and I've totally forgotten to blog. However, I had to show off my three youngest grandchildren in their new hats. They each chose the colors they wanted, and despite the warmer weather, they wore them frequently!

Who are the other hats for? Honestly, I've forgotten who they've gone to. I do know that I have six more to go!
