Pretty purple Headband...

Last night I was sitting on the couch playing on the computer and my 9 year old came in and asked me to make her something. After an hour of sitting on Ravelry's new search engine looking for what she wanted...she just decides she wants a headband.

So we start looking for headband patterns. There are tons of headband patterns....if you live in the Arctic Circle. We live in Arizona. It's 112 degrees outside...in the shade.

I decided to just freehand it. Picked up the crochet hook and the yarn and just winged it.

Turned out pretty cute I think...

I don't love the yarn that we used...it was just a little bit of scrap that I found in the bottom of my "yarn bucket"... I think the next one I make will be with a fancier prettier maybe shiny yarn...

Next project is a girly baby set for a friends neice that is due any day...I'm just waiting for her to send me the yarn so I can get to knitting!

haha...so much for blogging every day...lol

Ok, so I have been totally derelict in my blogging duties...my apologies.

Here is the haps:

Finished my first "baby set"...it turned out pretty good for my first effort. Next time will be even more better. lol

Ummm...lets see.... oH ya. Made a really neat watch cap that my Gf picked out, it turned out pretty good despite the fact that I had the wrong size needles and wrong type of yarn. lol

Everything else in our life is pretty much the same as always...just livin life and getting through.

Things aren't always perfect, but when things aren't perfect is when you learn to appreciate the good things, ya know?

I promise I'll be blogging more... I really will! I hope.
