I know it’s not technically Friday anymore, but I have things! Unfortunately, I don’t have a whole lot to say about them or about their processes, but I have pretty (er… a pretty thing) things to share.
I was given some yarn for my birthday, and I fell in love with it. It was Universal Yarn in the Adobe colorway, which is a nice tan/peach color. I had started to make a hat with it all the way back in September, but I set it aside because I had special requests from people and paying gigs, and the hat was initially going to be for myself, so it got pushed to the back burner. This last week and a half or so, however, I finally decided to finish making it, and it quickly worked up. Upon finishing it, I thought it was a little bland and needed something to spruce it up. The pattern, The Big Girl Bonnet shows the finished hat with a flower attached, so I went on the search for a flower that I thought would really make the hat look finished. I scoured the internet looking for just the right one, I think I spent a day and a half looking for the perfect flower. I finally found one that I thought would look the best. A happy accident happened when I was making the flower, however, as I didn’t see the second half of the petals to the flowers, and ended up only doing one set of the Crocodile stitch on each petal base, which left me with a minimalist style flower, but I think it still looks really nice (and kind of cool and original), so I slapped a large button in the center and called it good! I think it turned out nicely.
Since it was that time of year, I decided to make a brain hat, which I decided to wear on Halloween for the trick-or-treaters. My husband helped me with this one, as he’s better at anatomical things and looks, so he placed the tubing on the hat and glued it down, which I then decided to go and stitch it down. The inside of the hat looks like a terrible mess, because of the longer stitches, but I think I’ve decided to keep this one for myself (however, it is currently listed on my Etsy shop). I think this is a really great hat, but I’m kind of weird, but it IS nice and warm!
I also made another Skulltastic Skull Scarf for a fellow Marf’s grandson. It will be getting shipped fairly quickly and I hope that he (and his grandson) like it!
I also have a new addiction, which I will write about soon!
