What did I do before crocheting? If I'm sitting down for a moment, I'm crocheting. If I'm riding in the car while Tom is driving, I'm crocheting. It's a sickness. Really.
A friend who learned that I've been crocheting hats lately asked if I might be willing to make "matching" hats for all the grandkids in her family . . . for a special Christmas gift of a photo of all the grandchildren. So, using a soft, cinnamon brown for the base color, I'm making the girls pink & brown hats, and the boys will get "seafoam" blue & brown. Five hats in all.
Here's the first of the boys': the youngest, at nearly a year old. It's not completely finished yet: I'm waiting for the measurement of the little ol' head. But, should I put a single pom-pom on the top . . . or not?
Here is the first of the little girls'. This is for the newest one, born just last month. I think I'll put a couple of tassles on this hat.
And, I've been amazed by how many people don't "get it" when I ask for their head measurement. So, with the assistance of my reluctant model, I made this image today. I'll e-mail it out to hat customers who need to learn 'How To Measure Your Head'. :)
