Great title, isn’t it? Guess it caught your interest if you’re still with me.
Not to worry: I am not injured; I have merely expanded my new hobby to include crocheted hats. In addition to the model pictured above, I created my own using a herringbone stitch pattern:
Here’s a close-up of the herringbone pattern:
Hey, it keeps me off the street and out of trouble. Which, for those of you who know me, is a very good thing.
I have completed all of my Christmas afghans (see photo at bottom of this post), and I was hoping to give a few hats to the men in my family. But hubby has advised that both of the hats I’ve pictured are too girly to be worn by any guy.
Back to the drawing board. I’m determined to create a masculine looking hat that incorporates the team colors of our local football and hockey teams. If I can’t do that with crochet, I’ll just have to re-learn knitting.
Once I’ve figured that out, I’ll be starting on the next phase of my hobby: baby afghans. I already have several people who love my full-sized afghans so much that they’ve asked if I can created some for my tiniest clients. Wish me luck. The baby afghans had better work out, because I’ve already purchased a whole bunch of yarn.
If nothing else, my hobby will give me something to do when I’m sitting in a hotel with Puppy Cody while the sewer work is being done at my house. I’m so looking forward to being able to flush the toilet without having to worry that the whole system will suddenly blow up. I will have the easy part of the project; hubby will be staying at the house to supervise the work. We both just want it over.
Hope all is well with you. The world is slowly getting back to [the new] normal; may it continue to do so.

you’re making some lovely things! Wishing you a happy and cooperative sewer system before the holidays hit.
Your crochet hats look great, CM. Good luck on getting that sewer work flushed out of your systems.
The hats are incredibly popular. I’ve actually had to turn down Christmas orders because I simply don’t have time to make them all. The sewer work is being done next week – I have little utility flags all over my front lawn, all different colors. Which is good ’cause my flowers have all died.
The flags will serve as your stand in. Next spring the lawn will be ready for new blooms, CM!
