I need more yarn! And I need to learn how to read patterns! Gah!

After knitting up a hat for me and Yangkyu, I thought I'd quickly crochet one for Piri as well. But cocker spaniel heads can be a little tricky and it didn't fit exactly as I had imagined. But still, here is a crocheted hat for Piri. Now we all have hats! We're ready for you brisk fall and cold winter months! 

I also came across this last night. You guys, I really need to crochet this puppy up. So I'm going to try my hardest to learn how to read patterns. And I'm crossing everything here to make it happen - my fingers, legs, even my hair.

  12. so cute! I've been working away on the cushy cowl pattern you posted in your last knitting/crochet post. And don't feel bad, I've been knitting for years now and I still constantly have to look up pattern abbreviations while I'm working.

    1. thanks! i always tried to do scarves many years ago and they would just get so crappy i always ended up throwing them out because the yarn collected dust and it was just so gross. i'm so surprised that i can actually finish things now!
