I liked my cat dishcloth so much I decided to make a spooky bat to go with it. Well, right now it is just a bat butt. Crochet goes so much faster than knitting for me, so I expect this one to be done in no time!

I've been winding my yarn into cakes for a while now. However, it was only recently that I discovered this particular trick of putting the cake into a ziploc bag. It is so simple and obvious I'm not sure why I didn't do it sooner. It keeps the cake from wobbling around as I pull,... Continue Reading →
It's all done! I definitely like the colors of this one better than the first one for myself. I will probably give the other one away. This one will be going on vacation with me in a few weeks!

I'm still chipping away at this very slowly every night. For whatever reason this one is not as stiff as the first one so it is not quite as photogenic. I may end up having to block it over a bowl to get it to look nice once I'm done.
Once again I didn't spend much time crocheting tonight, but I got another row or two done. I will definitely finish by the weekend even at this rate, so I'm happy. I'm enjoying the colors of this hat so much more than the first one too. Making this second hat was the right decision!
Made a tiny bit of progress on my hat. I've been very distracted by social and gaming things so far this week so it is a miracle I am getting anything done. Every little bit still counts!
It is amazing how much progress you can make on a lazy weekend. If all goes well I should be able to finish it this week!
I decided the green of my first hat was too much for me. I like this color scheme much better, especially the stripes instead of the variegated yarn in the middle.
It looks a little silly sitting there but I like it quite a lot when I'm wearing it. I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about the color, but I can always make another one. This pattern was a lot of fun!
