Yep, that’s right. I totally made myself a hat. It’s for me and only me! I’m a little unhappy with it because the yarn called for a J hook, so I used a J hook, and the stitches ended up super loose. You can see through it a bit and that makes me sad, but not sad enough to make it all over again.
I used Red Heart Boutique Midnight, and the colorway is called Shadow. It’s got some shimmery bits and it changes from dark gray, to light gray, to pink. I don’t usually go for something so… feminine. The shimmer and the pink are both new to me, and I might not wear it very often, but I still like it because it’s mine. This is one of the very few things I’ve made for myself, so it makes me extra happy.
Man, what a frightening picture.
So. Anyway… I’ve been sick for the past few days. It’s a horrible cold and pretty much everyone in the world seems to have it too. I could be using all this boring sick time to crochet, but I feel so awful that I don’t want to do anything. I’ve spent hours staring at the ceiling. Or the wall. It was nice to get back into it today, even if it was only for a couple hours.
Today was also the first day I left the house in a while (because of the sick). I went to Michaels and signed up for a cake decorating class! Yay! It’s the basic course, and it only cost $11.25 for all four classes. I got the basic kit for Christmas and I tried to sign up for the class in January, but it was full. So I promised myself I’d sign up for the February class ASAP, and of course I got too sick to leave the house and couldn’t sign up until today (only a week before the class begins). I was worried it’d be full and I’d have to wait another month, but there was only one other person on the sign-up sheet. I wonder if the class will be canceled if there aren’t enough students. I still have to buy some supplies for the first lesson, which shouldn’t be too bad, but I found a list of what I’ll have to bring to the second, third, and fourth lessons, and I’m feeling a little worried. I have no idea how much all that stuff costs, but… I don’t know, it’s such a long, scary list.
