I'm still Crocheting...a lot! I promise :-)

I haven't had a post about crochet in a while.  I checked, it was on August 1st.  This does not mean at all that I haven't been crocheting, quite the opposite actually. 

I have been working non-stop on my granny stripe that you have seen as a WIP here and here.  I only have 2 stripes left and then the border!!!

I have a couple scarves in progress, one is almost finished, and the other is just started. 

I actually just remember that I have a finished hat to show you.  I finished it a while ago, maybe in July.  I couldn't decide if it needed two buttons like the pattern showed or not.  Also, I couldn't get really good pictures, so I didn't want to post about it yet.  Good pictures or not, here it is.  (No making fun of my many facial expressions.  Do you know how hard it is to stand in a bathroom and use the mirror to see if you are aiming your phone correctly?  HARD haha)

Urban Revival Slouchy hat:

Pattern - Urban Revival by Vickie Howell  (I told you I loved her here)
Yarn - I did exactly as it called for and used Vickie Howell's Sheep-ish yarn in the color of turquoise-ish.  This is the first time I've used this yarn and I really like it.  The colors are amazing and the yarn has a nice sheen to it.
Hook - 5.5mm (I)

Here's the photo from the pattern:

Should I put two buttons on my hat or not?  What do you think?



  1. I love the hat and the color.. turquoise and me are in love. LOL
    I think you should button or not button - it's up to you! Or how about a nice big crocheted flower?
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. If it were me, I'd look for some nice, chunky-looking buttons to add to the hat, it adds just a bit of detail.

  3. Buttons! I love them and I think it will complete the look. But its up to you of course ^_^

  4. Buttttttttttttons! Yes Buttons will look lovely!

  5. I think no buttons! :-)

  6. This hat is so cuuuuute! It may be just what I need (well, when the weather cools off a bit more) to hide my silly looking outgrowing hair that is not a short cut anymore but is far from being a decent length lol
    I like the flower idea too :)

  7. I started on this pattern last night for my wife and followed it closely. Being that the circumference of the band and that of the body aren't equal, how do you sew them together without having to bunch up the body to get it to fit?
