Do you smell it in the air?
It’s filling your lungs.

After frantically crocheting Christmas gifts, it’s so nice to just make whatever I want for no reason whatsoever.
And that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing since Dec. 25.
Want to see?
I used a 10 mm (N) hook, and it came out a tad big for my head, but that could be because I crocheted loosely. Overall, I love how it turned out!
I also made another pair of Neon Love Mitts (Meghan Fernandes) out of a softer, stretchier yarn — baby yarn, actually. And I must admit that I’m hopelessly in love with them. The only sad part is that they restrict my pinky a bit so I can’t really wear them when I type on the computer. (First-world problems…)
I shouldn’t really brush over Project Christmas Crochet, though. Everyone really liked the stuff I made them — or at least they pretended to! The only problem is that I’m terrible at snapping good pictures. All I have are dark, noisy pictures I took on my phone.
I made Dad and Brother one hat each.
And my little niece really liked the hat and matching wristers I whipped up.
Gotta celebrate the successes, right?
