Crafting Between Driving


6 comments
We've been driving alllllll day long - it really took us about 17 hours with the stopping and the time when someone (uh hum, dad) had a dispute between the mapquest directions and the gps and decided to follow mapquest (big mistake). Anyways, I did a good share of the driving - about 9 hours and when I couldn't take it any more, I decided to pull out the yarns.
I don't have my Misty to display this hat properly but it is a new beanie pattern I'm trying. I'm giving to a girl in my brother's church up here so I won't be able to see what it looks like on Misty.

This is the best I could do to display this on the hotel bed.




This is the top of the beanie.


This is the side of the beanie.

Well, I must go now. I hope to get a descent amount of sleep tonight. Maybe tomorrow we won't look like scarey people (My whole family looked crazy the whole way on this trip - head scarves, hair rollers in head, flip flops....I can't go on.) :-)

  3. First, you lucky girl with getting the FAB present from your friend when he got back from Peru. Jealous!! You must show pics when you get your "equipment" back. :)

    The beanie is very nice with the colors you picked out. Very "springy" looking.

    Glad to hear we aren't the only ones who have "fun" on trips with family. Just cracks you up, doesn't it.

    Have fun dear!
