DAY 1: Tonight, I’m working on an 18″ purple hat for a toddler. Since this pattern contained many chains I’ve never done before, I started off the project by doing research on terminology. I’m so grateful to those crocheters who posted YouTube videos, cause I’m a visual/vocal learner – I have a hard time comprehending instructions when in text, especially abbreviated text. What in the world is fpHdc or bpHdc? You want me to what?!?! Sexual harassment! I need an adult! Thanks to the crocheting YouTube community for making the learning process quick & easy for me!

Once I understood the process, I put my skein of yarn in a Ziploc bag. Yes, I said a Ziploc bag. I use the bags to protect the yarn from my older cat, Chia Pet, who enjoys sleeping on my lap while I crochet & from my kitten, Totoro, who enjoys chewing on the yarn until he shreds it. When I’m not working on the project, I put it all in the bag so no fur gets on it. It’s not always foolproof, but it’s the best method that has worked for me so far.

Well, I bagged the skein of yarn, printed out the pattern, then began the project. It took a couple of attempts to get the pattern right, but once I got the hang of it, time just flew by & crocheting went fluidly. I have some other projects to take care of, so this is good for one night. More to come tomorrow!


DAY 2: Finished the hat with little difficulty. I chose to create my own flower since the owner of the hat wanted only one instead of 3 layers. The hat is so cute! I wish I had someone to sport it for my pictures, but all I had was my oversize Ewok doll. 1 down, 2 more to go!
