Today was an awesome day. So awesome that I'm positive that tomorrow will suck big golf balls just to make things even.
After dropping the Pip off at school, hubby treated me to a cup of Dunkin's coffee (mmmm). When we got home, he made me breakfast! Sometimes I swear the man was dropped directly from Heaven.
After breakfast, I crocheted for awhile and then....get ready....here it comes....we napped! Together! For TWO HOURS! Joy! I love naps.
Onto the crochet. Christmas has been on my mind and I know that if I'm going to do a homemade Christmas, I needed to start now. I was going through the stash I bought from Smiley's back in May and found this crimson chenille yarn. I've never worked with chenille yarn before. What was I waiting for? It rocks! Its a super bulky and so so soft. I knew this had to become something for none other than Dirty Grandma.
Complicated stitches would get lost with this yarn because its so thick and plush, so simple was the way to go. The hat is simple hdc made in rounds and the scarf is really easy dc done in rows.
(Don't mind me...I'd only just gotten up from my nap and had sleepy written all over my face).
Here's a close up of the hat so you can see just how plush it is. I think Dirty Grandma is going to love it!
Oh yeah, the day just got even better. Hubby just asked me to get butter because he's going to make cookies!
Bye peeps, have to go get the butter before he changes his mind!
