My crocheted hat for Mercy












I don't know what has come over me. I have become quite the addict to creating things these last few months. I have had the knitting needles going making mittens, the crochet hooks out making hats (well, the first started out as a handbag...but went very wrong, so hat it became) and not to mention the sewing projects I have going at the same time.
I love how this hat came out. It has a *Rasta* look that I love. Can I make it again? Hmm, that remains to be seen, as I was teaching myself as I went. The hat took 2 evenings to finish and the GREAT thing is I have been losing pounds in the process. Hard to eat chips and salsa while your hands are busy *creating.*
Presently, I am working on a pair of knitted baby pants in a sweet moss green color. A little slow going for my liking, but it is the first pattern that I have been able to work my way through without getting *stuck*. Praising God for that, as I just haven't ever been able to understand patterns. Perhaps I am growing up (finally!)?
Off to work on the pants, kids are napping and the house is currently so quiet. Hope you find a time of quiet today too.

The hat, simply a crown fit for little princess. But chips and salsa, mmmm, hard to give up. You continue to amaze me, wife, mom, daughter of the King, creator extrordinare!

She is so beautiful! My boys think she's too cute. It's funny that your hat started as a bag... I have a knit hat that needs to be turned into a bag!

That last picture is the sweetest, Kimmie! Yay for those creative moments that come upon us :-) I guess I should get more serious about some of the creative hobbies if they are also weight loss encouragers ;-)

Blessings,

That is one cute hat, good job. Interestingly enough, the first thing I ever crocheted was a hat that didn't work out and ended up as a bag, lol.

The end result is perfect for your little gal, she's so precious!
