I have finally accomplished a skill that I always envied. Being able to crochet with out looking. This isn't saying that I work fast. I am considerably slower but its a start. I think its amazing how the fingers can memorize a motion, and do it with very little thought. Ah the wonders of the human body.
Papa's Riding hat is working up wonderfully. Which is surprising because I am fairly sure that I goofed a lot on the original pattern. I like it so much I think i will make me one. :D I am at the trial and error part because I am trying to make ear flaps for him. But I think I am just turning it into a helmet looking thing. If it ends up looking funny I will just have to frog part of it and try a different approach.
