The pattern for this fun slouchy beanie is now available in my Ravelry store! I named this hat the Elena, after my new niece. Get it here.
Another slouchy crochet hat made following Delia Creates’ pattern.
Whipped this up in just one night. Super easy and really cute! Pattern here.
People often ask me what I like better, crocheting or knitting. In general I like the look of knitting better, but there are some great advantages to crochet. For one, crochet is much easier to fix if you make a mistake. You simply rip out to where the mistake was and keep going …. You can’t do that with knitting. But knitting can create beautiful cables and lacework so often I made hats by knitting. I never explored cabling with crochet until I stumbled upon All About Ami’s cabled beanie pattern.
Knitting uses less yarn so I could have made a similar beanie with less than a skein. But the crochet version is thicker and warmer.
I guess people don’t like the new design of the TMNT golf club covers … I just got an order for a set of 4 (of the all-knit original design) and that’s what I’ve been doing the last couple of days. I finished the 2nd one last night … just 2 more to go! I’m really flattered people are willing to pay so much for these covers – otherwise it’s just not worth my time.I can’t wait til I get this order done so I can get back to sewing stuff for my friends and family. Luckily I got most of it done – just a few more hats to go 🙂
