week 2 projects

So those of you still sticking around, thanks!  It has been a lot harder than I thought to limit computer time.  I often find myself thinking, "I'll just go look that up" only to remember that the time I had set aside for the day had already been used.  It forces me to be a lot more conscientious of what I need to do on the computer versus what I want to do. 

On the plus side, my hook and needles are getting well worn and I am loving some of the new patterns I am trying.  Not all of them have been great though and I ran across one this week that I really didn't like the final product (more due to my skills than the pattern I am sure) and another where the directions were really a mess and I had to wing the last bit of it.  So here are my projects this week.  I had hoped to include today's hat in here but it is taking a bit more time than I anticipated so I may have to finish it up Sunday. 

hat 1 is the Rib Look Baby hat  I really liked this one and it works up super quick!

hat 2 is the one I am not so happy with.  It is the Garter Stitch baby hat.  working it on 4 dpn I ended up with ladders between the needles and I think this would have been better with something other than Simply Soft yarn.

hat 3 is the Crochet WW hat from Save the Children. Quick to work up also.

hat 4 is my favorite this week.  It is the Divine Hat and is available in preemie through adult sizes.

hat 5 is the one with the messed up border directions and it is called the Crochet Baby Hat by Bernat designs. 

What are you working on this week?

Until next time,
