In addition to decluttering and organizing, here's what I've been working on this week. I have been crocheting these baby hats. The blue ones were a request from my daughter in law for her very pregnant cousin. Its hard to make these in the right size without a baby head to try them on! So I made the blue one in a newborn size and a 3 to 6 month size.
The pink one is for the baby girl expected by my step-daughter. I am going to crochet a white flower to go on the side of it. Maybe I can show the final hat next week.
I have struggled so much while teaching myself how to make these hats. I first started trying to learn about three years ago. I made some rejects and low quality hats along the way. Especially the first few! But, I've finally got a feel for how to make them and I'm ready to branch out with more designs. The internet is such a help. Without it, I probably would never have figured it out.
I'm enjoying working on these hats while watching tv with my hubby. I think one good thing about them is that I get a sense of accomplishment with fast gratification, since I can finish a hat in a couple of days, even though I only have a little bit of time to work on them.
