FO Friday

Is it really Friday already? Seriously, where does time go? I don’t have many finished projects this week. I’ve spent a good amount of time making jam every night. I do have a couple of hats at least.

This one is a test I did a couple of months ago but couldn’t post until the pattern had been published. It was just published in Crochetvolution so now I can share my picture. It’s called Winter Crossings Set by Dawn Friday. I used some scrap yarn I had, Impeccable by Loops and Threads and can be found at Michael’s. I tried to get a good picture of the edging which I thought turned out nice. It’s a surface crochet in yellow and reverse single crochet/crab stitch to finish it off.

The Geez Louise hat for a cancer hat drive I’m participating in. I found this at Crochetvolution as well. I wanted to make something to donate that was a little bit different from the usual beanie type chemo cap. It’s almost turban like.

It worked up in a couple of hours. I will admit though, for all of these hats I had to go down in hook size and in the case of the Minion I had to go down 2 hat sizes as well to get it to fit my head. I have a big gourd and I always thought I was a tight crocheter. I pretty much frogged the whole Minion hat the first time I made it, I was drowning in it.
