This Thick Warm Crocheted Winter Hat lives up to it’s title.  With front post stitches for insulation, my brother loves how fast this hat warms his head.

I crocheted the Boy Beanie v2.0 for him, also using Red Heart Super Saver in paddy green, but it turned out too tight.  I was thinking of trying out the Husband Hat for him, but he requested a Cable Hat, like my gray one.

I really enjoy the Cable Hat pattern, but after making that hat several times over to get the right size, I had no desire to make another for a while.  The Thick Warm Crocheted Winter Hat pattern seemed like a good compromise.

This hat is my first with a brim and it looks very bulky in the picture.  When worn on an actual head instead of a yarn ball, the brim stretches out a bit more.   

In other news, I’m working on a new set of photos for the Through Any Window Baby Blanket tutorial.  Three rows were out of pattern order, so I’m re-photographing them.  The actual directions are correct, but just remember the color order is jumbled.  Also, I’m planning a new tutorial for a neat little crochet technique I came across on YouTube

Today is the third annual World Kidney Day!

Since I’ve only been working on my boucle knit scarf, and any updates on that would bore you to tears, I thought I’d show you my Baby Hat on a Roll.  You can read the original post about it on Crochetville. 

I didn’t really bother with the gauge and it turned out too small for a my cousin’s baby so now it’s sitting on my FO pile nearly a year later.  I’m not too sad about that, since I got to rephotograph it.  Plus it’s one more project I can put in my Ravelry notebook (but who’s counting?) 

The hat has the roll or bullion stitch for the border.  This stitch is tricky and I was using a Boyle.  In hind sight a Bates hook probably would have been a better option.     

 

In other news, I’ve just disovered RSS feeds.  I had some trouble in the beginning because the automatic setting scans for updates every 24 hours but, once I located the options menu, everything fell into place.  Now I have a pleasantly tidy list that bolds any blog listing with an update in the past thirty minutes.  I have even added more blogs to my mental ‘read every post’ list since I’m flooded with a few more blog minutes everyday.

Speaking of blogs, I did a sweep of all the blogs on my blogroll today.  Some blogs that have not been updated in a long while were deleted.  It’s not a matter of like or dislike, so please don’t be upset if your blog suddenly disapeared; I just want to keep the blogroll solely for regularly updated craft reads. 

I’m aiming to add some new blogs for the newly pruned list soon.  I’d love it if you readers would comment with your own craft/crochet blog or one that you like to read if it’s not listed already.  I’m always on the prowl for new and interesting craft reads.
