I love the end of the year. It’s hard to believe that it’s already time to evaluate my goals! I keep all my goals on a handwritten list taped to my desk. I use the last week of every December to evaluate them, to see how well I did and how I can raise the bar for the upcoming year. It’s a lot of fun, and goals can truly be achieved if you work hard and keep your internal voice positive. As I was working on my goals, I decided to crochet a new hat, because I am obsessed with hats (apparently). I have had this wool tweed yarn in my stash for a while and I decided to break it out and make something. I settled on the idea for this Crochet Confetti Tweed Slouchy. I thought the tweed was very fitting for the end of the year, a nod to NYE and confetti, don’t you think?
I found myself yarn shopping a few months ago. My color choices can sometimes be a bit drab. What can I say? Gray will always have my heart. But something made me decide to order a very bright, very hot pink yarn. I bought it in a few weights and fibers (you can see it in this Chunky V-Stitch Cowl), and I have decided it’s going to be my winter color theme! It’s such a bright, gorgeous pop to the drab winter months of the year. And I love the contrast between my lovely and humble gray, and the hot, bright pink. Isn’t this hat gorgeous? I call it the Autumn Frost Slouchy Hat.
(Heaven help me, coming up with names is not someting I excel at.)
Happy Friday, Whistlers! I wanted to wrap up summer with this lovely and airy Summer Festival Slouchy. I absolutely love hats, and this light hat is still wearable is warmer weather with its granny stitch-esque stripes, and breathable cotton yarn.
Happy Friday my lovely friends!
This was the last week of school here, which doesn’t mean too much for me because my kids aren’t in school yet, but it might mean lots of fun for you! I think back to when I was young. Summer was so care-free, so fun, and so long. Summer still holds lots of nostalgia, and I enjoy it’s visit every year. And even though the weather is warm, you can still wear cute hats.
I was asked to be a part of Cream of the Crop Crochet’s 12 Months of Slouchy Hats, so today I am sharing the Summer Festival Slouchy Hat crochet pattern.
