FINALLY finished my first crocheting project: that little Glow Crinkle hat I had posted the pattern for a while back. This is my second attempt. The first hat was a disaster, as I had not yet learned how to stop my chained ring from twisting. This final product (modelled below by the lovely Myrna, my hat bust, as I am too bleary eyed from days of crocheting, so shall save you the horror of looking at my wrinkled visage) looks a bit like a cute little wearable pastry, but I am not certain I draped it exactly as described in the instructions. In my defense, I shall state that I don't think the image matches the written instructions--it says to pin the RIGHT side down but the left side is down in the image, etc. In the end, I took bits and pieces from the written instructions and others from the visual to create this cap. Also, I made it in an off white yarn instead of the brown called for (so I could see my novice level stitches better), but the main thing is that I *think* I got the crocheting part correct? One way or another, I'm definitely hooked on crocheting!! My fingers are already itching to tackle another project. Thanks to Kate over at Vintage in a Modern World for posting great instructions on how to make acorn jewelry; I used elements of her directions to create the acorn button atop this sporty pixie-pastry topper.
