I love it when people request my stuff. A lady at work wanted one of these hats after she saw mine. I still need to put the buttons on the sides and the plastic canvas in the brim. Oh and it came out much bigger than my orginal ones. I call myself follwoing the instructions to the "t" and I did treble crochets instead of double and this is what I got. You know what is wierd I used a smaller hook ( ok so i did not follow the directions to the t) and it came out so much bigger. But she loves it and therefore I do too.
I am very excited about the Crochet by Numbers portrait I just completed. I got the free pattern from Todd A Paschall back in July but did not get to start the piece until after the UFOlympics. I am very pleased I was able to complete it before Christmas dinner, which is the next time I will be seeing Davi. This photo was one of the proofs she sent me when she graduated from Southern Univ. in May.
