Creating things never ceases to amaze me. I am awed that if you twist fibers just so, they will create shapes that you can actually fit on your head. I shared my awe with the two most intelligent (book smart, male) people in our house, and they both said, "Well, sure, see, if you drone-drone-geometry-smeometry-blah-blah, it always turns out that way."
Since I can't understand that stuff, I stand amazed.
And so, I'm like a little kid saying, "Look at what I made!" because I'm seriously So Excited that twisting yarn with a metal stick created something so fun for our little teenie bopper.
Hats have a way of making the sass come out, don't they? Last year, it was the Year of the Scarf around here (our ballerina is wearing one, in fact, that she crocheted last year). This year: I think we're on the way to becoming haberdashers milliners (had to look that one up!). Making this little hat was so fun and so easy that I want to make 10,000 more.
Want to crochet one, too? The pattern is free, here. It only took me an afternoon, an evening, and a morning (it would have been simpler to just say "a day," I suppose, but keep in mind that I'm regularly interrupted by four children and my whimsies). The pattern is easy enough for a beginner, so try it!
What are you creating these days? Please do share, so I will be distracted from crocheting 10,000 hats. 1. We do not have enough heads, and 2. I'm pretty sure I won't make it to 19, much less 9,999 more hats.
