|Super-Cutie Sock Monkey (just for you, KS!) ;)|
Ok, maybe not EVER, but very close! I love this hat, which brings me to being thankful for a few more things....
1. Free Online Patterns. Thanks to all who post their creations for all to use- it's a very generous thing to do.
2. I am thankful to my mom for teaching me how to crochet at a young age. I've said this before, but it bears repeating. It's one of those soul-satisfying things to do- to snuggle up on the couch and either watch an old movie or listen to some good music and crochet away. Even better when it's a little earflap beanie for your soon-coming bundle!
This was a super easy pattern, perfect for a beginner. I finished it in a few hours- which is a satisfying project to do, since it's immediate gratification...
I love the edging on this- it's a crab stitch, or a reverse single crochet. Easy, but impressive results. If we have a girl, you can bet a crochet flower will end up on this (or the next one!)- I will definitely be making more of these in other colors (and maybe bigger sizes for the kiddos if I can find a bigger pattern).
Unrelated, I was so happy to wake up to the first snow on our mountain tops...a little reminder that winter is upon us, and we have a few weeks
