It seems time has gotten away from me since my last post with all of you. August and September are busy months in my household. Lots of birthdays, anniversaries, school, dance classes and soccer have filled the days on the calendar. After thought, the remainder of the year is going to be busy as I am sure it is the same for you.
My husband and I have been on the highways and byways quite a bit as of late. Because I am Type A, I’ve always thought of the time sitting and riding as a passenger was time that I could be accomplishing something. Doesn’t matter if we are in a car, airplane or train, to me that is idle time. Because of this I always bring along, (but not limited to) a bag filled with yarn and crochet hooks. This possible askew thinking in the crochet world means I am a true “hooker.” I love the feel and texture of yarn sliding through my fingers working into a finished project with different sized hooks. What is even more fun to me is taking scrap yarn and creating something colorfully wonderful. This could be a pillow, stuffed animal, tote bag, bowl, basket, rug, scarf and hats. The possibilities are endless.
Okay, I went off on a bunny trail envisioning new project ideas. My point to all of this is during these past couple of weeks while riding in a car, I have been making hats, hats and more hats. While hats have a specific usefulness, they clearly are used as a fashion statement. So for fun, I have posted a picture along with this blog a few that I have completed. What’s even more fun are the requests for a pumpkin, reindeer, Minnie/Mickey Mouse and a couple of team spirit slouch hats. As my husband and I continue traveling to various events, I will be working on these hats. Until the next post, have a blessed day! ~ Robin
