I finished the actual crochet-work on both of these projects awhile ago, but they both needed some finishing in order to be useful. These days, most of my craft-time is going towards finishing the girls' Easter dresses and the boy's Easter vest, but on Sundays I indulge myself by working on projects for myself.
I made the first project from a hat pattern in this book, but I wanted to use it as a snood, so today I sewed a circle of elastic around the inside edge:
And here's how it looks from the back:
The next one is a cabled headband (my first time making crocheted cables). I used the pattern for a hat brim from this book, and then shortened it and sewed it closed in order to make a headband:
Both of these were made of a pretty yarn that a friend gave me for Christmas a year ago. I really like them both!
Peace of Christ to you,
