Stuff I finished yesterday

Yesterday was quite a day, as far as crocheting goes. I sat down with hook and yarn, buckled down, and finished some stuff. I’d have posted yesterday, but it rained. A lot. All day. So no pictures.

First up, I finished Max’s hard hat! (Yaaay!) He was thrilled.


What? No, seriously, he was! Every time he saw me working on it he got all excited about the ‘yellow hat’ and tried to get his hands on it. Apparently, though, what Max really wants a mask. Every time we put a hat on him, he pulls it down past his chin, and runs around giggling and bumping into walls. I had to bribe him with the fire truck to get him to keep his hands off of it long enough to get the photo. And then, I guess…

…the truck got cold. I think I have the sizing figured out, which means that the pattern will be put into testing soon and will be added to my sale patterns! I really need to beef up the number of patterns I have to sell. Compared to my freebies, their number is shockingly low. Not that you mind, I’m sure, hahaha.

Next up is something that I wasn’t sure would ever be finished. Yesterday, for reasons unknown even to me, I went into my craft closet, unburied the WIP box, and brought it downstairs. Inside was this little guy:


Poor little monkey’d been taped up in the box for at least a year and a half. He was only missing two legs, half an arm, and a tail! That was a quick finish. I didn’t actually finish him yesterday, but when I started on him this morning it was dark out, and when I finished it was still darkish, so I’m counting it. Poor little guy doesn’t have a name yet. That’s all right, though. He’ll also be for sale.

And, finally, there were mittens.

You didn’t think we’d get through a post without mittens, did you?

    Ahh! Max is cute! Has he seen real guys working with cool stuff while wearing their hard hats? The Monkey looks like the “trouble” from Jumanji – being taped up in the box and all. Tell me again what’s it you are doing with the mittens, is their an org. that is collecting them? Mom (Thanks for the Photo!)

    Ah, don’t you love kids? Of course the firetruck was cold!
    I thought of y’all yesterday–it was nearly 80 degrees here. I thought I woke up in SA!

    Max is very cute. I wish I could see you and your family. It has been so many years. You probably don’t remember us.

    Hmmm, does he like Bob the Builder? I bet you feel like a bit of weight has lifted off your shoulders getting something unfinished done. I love that feeling.
