Surprisingly not that difficult. The cuff simply changed every two rows. The rest is a vertical stripe with the colors being carried along the way.
I haven’t done the thumb yet. I think it will be straight black.
I haven’t been hooking very much lately, but I have very good reasons. Remember the post before last about the beard hat? Well, that was for my dad in the hospital. And… well… frankly… he didn’t make it. So I haven’t been doing much of anything lately.
But then I found this pattern and I thought, “hey! I need something to take my mind off things and I like Victorian era things and I have all this yarn about. Why the heck not?”
I would like to thank my mom for being such a lovely hand model. She spent a good half hour trying to pick out the right polish to match. They look fantastic!
I’m trying to work on this blanket, but I seem to have stumbled across a kitten shaped road block.
Tux seems to think the best time to lay on my lap is when I’m working on my crocheting. Normally it wouldn’t be bad, but I’m trying my first foray into blanket land and it’s already taking a really long time.
The blanket in question is just a giant granny square. And I dig it.
So my dad is in surgery right now to remove a brain tumor. To do this they had to shave his head… all of it. My dad has had a beard since as long as I can remember, so upon hearing they had to shave it off I had to make him one.
