Well, in the days since my post which recounted the extreme struggle I had with a skein of yarn, I have mastered [some of] the art of crocheting. I am by no means a pro yet. Not even close.
BUT. I managed to make a hat and some headbands since my last disaster post.
I have been using left over yarn that I’ve had in my possession for year. Like over a decade even. This multi colored one is one of those skeins that each foot or something is a different color and they all fade into one another. Pretty neat. I think it’s kind of rasta or something.
This is the first crochet project that I actually completed. I didn’t really know what I was doing throughout the entirety of it, but hey – it [pretty much] fits on my head! It’s a little too loose around the edge, so if I made another one, I’d tighten it up a bit. It’s a pretty versatile hat – it can look like a bowl in my head if I don’t smoosh the sides in a little [dorky, I know.] and it can be worn low on my forehead like it is in the pic or even back like one of those slouchy hats that are popular today. My dad tried it on and he wore it like a newsboys hat, with a makeshift brim. Aside from the colors not really being up his ally, it looked good on him too!
After making two three adult headbands, I decided that I wanted to make some kid sized ones. These will eventually be used a props in child photo shoots; or that’s the plan, anyway!
I’ve got all kinds of ideas and plans for decals on these. Here’s to hoping that a large portion of the children and babies that I photograph are girls. 🙂 Unfortunately, these don’t suit boys too well.
