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's already almost done! Just a few more rounds around the brim and it will be finished. This is a really nice pattern to let my brain take a break from knitting lace for a little while.
One of my goals this month is to crochet something. Since I'm going to the beach soon I figured I would try to make myself a cute sun hat. I actually started this over the weekend, but it wasn't much to look at yet. Now it actually looks like it might be a hat. I... Continue Reading →
Hooray! I actually finished it a couple days ago, but was busy traveling to visit with friends so you had to wait to see it. I am generally happy with it, but I wish I had used a less busy yarn so the cables would stand out more. They were a lot of work and... Continue Reading →
In truth the hat is actually "finished" today, in that I don't have any more knitting to do. However it is still missing a pom-pom so I can't quite call it done. Still, I'm relieved that all the hard work is over, and it is totally wearable even if I don't get around to adding... Continue Reading →
