Crochet? YES! I Did It!

I started this in January (the 12th, I believe) at my Beginner Crochet class at Wyrd Sisters Yarn Shop. Leslie was my instructor and if you remember my post from that night she was wearing this hat in the pretty lime green she'd made it in. I bought a yarn called LOL which was made from recycled plastic bottles, and started to work on the hat, known as the One Skein Slouch Hat, that Leslie designed for the shop:
and I finished mine tonight! Karen is doing the honors, modelling it so nicely.

I'm somewhat in awe:

I just love the way the ribbing shows up (that's because it's crocheted thru the back loop - see, I figured that one out myself! - and forms those ribs).

This IS a donation hat, going for the shop's Chemo Cap drive.

But you know what? I just am going to have to make myself one of these flirty little chapeaus...

Doncha know?

Crochet is nice for hats that you want a bit of structure - like for that flirty brim. Nicely done!

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
