I finished something!

Deb over at Not Inadequate is having a Blog Hop.   It is called “Just Finish Something Already!”.    Since I haven’t finished anything in like For.Ev.Er, I wasn’t able to participate until now.  Just two weeks before the Blog Hop ends.  Go figure.

Here is what I actually finished over the weekend.  A hat.  Yes, a hat.  Problem with that?  Ok, so it isn’t really a big project, requiring lots of planning, and steps to finish.  But it is FINISHED!  And it is one less Christmas gift that I have to make or buy. WOOT!

This hat is for my second daughter, aka Pea #1.

The pattern is from the book Positively Crochet by Mary Jane Hall.   Yarn is Marble Chunky, in a purple color.   It is an acrylic yarn, which is perfect for little girls who don’t take care of their clothes.

My favorite part about this hat is the crown.  I just like the way it looks.

You can find more information on this hat at my Ravelry project page.

Now on to finish my sweater, so I can post something next Monday.

  2. Very nice it looks like knit. Beautiful color too!

  3. Good job! Yes – acrylic is perfect for kids. How did you do the crown?

    • The hat is done side to side, then sewn together like a tube. Then you take one open end and crochet a round of sc, then decrease until the hole is closed. Something like that. lol

  4. Congratulations on finishing something!

    Now I shall visit Rav and post something nice about your chunky purple hat.

  5. Very nice! I like the way the colors kind of blend together while still remaining separate.

  6. BTW, I friended you on Ravelry, hope that’s okay. I recently deleted all of my projects and photos, so it looks like I haven’t done much, but I really have! Just felt like a fresh start.

  7. That is a lovely hat, especially the way the colors are.
