Panda!

The ears. Oh the ears. I couldn’t find a way of doing them that I honestly liked. I ended up using a crochet half-circle tutorial I Googled and they were ok.

I did approx 2ā€ of 2×2 ribbing in back, switched to white and finished the hat. Not my favourite hat, but I think the recipient will like it.

If I were to do again, Iā€™d do 2 DC half circles and stitch them together to make fatter ears. Oh well. She’ll get it this weekend (maybe she’ll let us take a photo of her wearing it?)

Hooray October! I’ve yet to make it to Hickory to buy fabric what with all the gas mess going on. We’re currently planning on going tomorrow, and Mom & I have set aside October 18th as a girls sewing day since Alex will be at a festival with his dad and Rusty will be at a bachelor party.

I finished knitting my Tricorn hat. Felted it in the washing machine (SO COOL) and it was too big, so I boil felted it last night by hand. Still drying, but I think it’s right now (huzzah!)

I also washed and blocked the pieces for the Estes vest. Hoping it’ll be dry when I get home after work, I can seam it up and do the edging then.

My shopping list for Hickory is almost all craft related and keeps growing, haha.

I taught myself to crochet, thanks to books Kara sent me (& all her hooks). It’s much easier this go through, in a way it never was before. I think it’s to do with being able to see stitches and stuff. Anyway, yeah, add that to the list of crafts for me šŸ™‚

I’m getting ready to do some socks for Alex and I have started another mobius scarf that will either be for me or for Mom. I’ve not decided yet.
