Forgive the hideousness of my face. Late night + no make up = harsh looking Katiebeans. Maybe I will make a TeaBeans ski mask to wear over my face!

'Twas the day after Thanksgiving, when all through the house, um something about a mouse, and Katiebeans finished a stocking for Iron Martin! I will crochet him into the Christmas spirit! He seems to really like it, and maybe he will get a nice crochet hat inside!
I was looking all around the interwebs for a cool crochet stocking, but all I could find were SO cheesey and mostly shaped like perfect Ls. Lo and behold the holiday yarn I bought actually had a free freaking pattern on the label. You can check it out here. I actually made my stocking with hdch instead of sc (oops!), and I inserted a snowflake pattern I found here. Also, instead of the cuff shown on the pattern, I did a ribbing stitch (3 fpdc - 1 bpdc). I think it looked more masculine for my boy. I also added a red over stitch on the heel to make it look more country-home.
I hope you are getting into the spirit!

Although an equally familiar scene involves me crocheting 4 feet above my lap to accomdate that Mr. Kitten as he lies on his side mushing my gut.
Many more projects to post, stay tuned...........

Many of you may not know that lil miss Katiebeans was a member of Outing Club in college. This cable crochet number makes her feel like goin for a hike in Western PA.
Where would you wear it?! Pls refrain from comments like, "as I sleep on a pile of cardboard boxes at the Port Authority."

Uno: Made a hat to sell on Etsy! Need some time to take pics and get it up there.
Dos: Started another hat to sell on Etsy. Kicked cat off my lap FOUR times, and FOUR times he came back to snuggle aka interfere with my crocheting.
Tres: Sent a couple hats to an old friend. Piggytails crossed that she likes them!
Quatro: Ordered some holiday yarn for a holiday project for another old friend. Excited to try something totally new!!!
Cinco: New Iron Martin beanie proving difficult. Loving the yarn color, hating the yarn. Half-finished project currently on mantle.
Seis: Foot injury hurt hurt hurts. Foresee more depression/hat making in the nearest future. Current Katiebeans is angry at Past Katiebeans for her decision to run 3 miles as fast as possible one day + 3 mile run on outdoor track another day. (For the record, did 3.5 in 8 min/mi pace... not bad for 6 months off!)
Siete: Next week imma try to post some sterf. But it's birfday week so I can't make any promises!

Thanks to Rachel who sent this to me. Source here. Sadly this would take me 4,000 years to make so I couldn't make it for her & her awesome hubs. Maybe one day I can make a mini one for a baby or something?
