Craft Humor...

It's funny because it's true.

Hat-a-Tat-Tat-Tat-Tat-Tat... that's the way it is.

Merry, merry!  Don't have anything new to share.  I have been working on a hat that is really giving me trouble and a very complicated pattern, hence the delay in new Teabeans stuff.

But I would like to share some pics of Tara in the hat I gave her for Christmas!  She accidentally destroyed her other Teabeans crochet hat in the clothes dryer, so I was super happy to give her this hat I made recently!  She said she wanted a purple or cream girly hat, and I previously mentioned in my post on this hat that the style/color were not my thing.  What are the odds?!  It was a Christmas miracle!
How freaking cute is she in that hat!?!  I hope everyone else had a fun Christmas too!

Hat's Out of the Bag

Dear Blog-Nobbers,

Tonight we went to see the Knicks play the Timberwolves!  It was fun even though I don't like basketball.  Our seats were super close, and they definitely do a good job of pumping you up!  

On the way out, I snapped some pics of Iron Martin in the new beanie I crocheted for him!  The pattern is exactly the same as always (circle of 8 hdc, increase by 8 to 63 hdc).  This time I worked in rounds instead of turning to make it 100% seamless.  He's lookin fly as always!
I just bought a TON of yarn with Brooke out in no-man's-land this weekend so as long as I can find time, I will have more to show you!

Til then!

Happy Ho Ho Ho to You

Who's in the Christmas spirit?!  Last night we had the Kmart traditional holiday party with cheese & crackers and cookies, Christmas music, Elf, and decorations!  I may or may not have worn Santa socks. 

One very special ornament I got to hang on the tree this year is my new "Hooked on Crochet" ornament!  My old friend Laura gave it to me at our 10 year HS reunion (YIKES) over Thanksgiving.  Lucy is Laura's daughter.  Do you love it?!  I do!!!
