In terms of crochet success I haven't had much of it in the past week.
A baby blanket I attempted to make for a friend got away from me to the point it was beyond frogging and starting over. An attempt at a new hat design didn't pan out and then of course there is my absolute favorite:
Adding a brim to a beanie.
Yep I can freehand anything it seems but for some reason I can not for the life me of make a brimmed beanie without making the wearer look like a sad 12-year-old boy - AKA me.
However, this is also probably where I should admit that all of my attempts were between 1 and 2 a.m. while watching Eddie and the Cruisers II. All I can say is I can now conclude that drinking Red Bull at 8 p.m. isn't perhaps the best idea I've ever had.
What bums me out is I did, however, make another very cute skull and cross bones applique, complete with little heart eyes. Yet, by sewing it onto my pathetic brimmed beanie attempt I somehow turned my badass skull into "cutsy" accessory.
But Rome wasn't built in a day and neither was my crocheting abilities. I've never let a pattern or design defeat me yet.
I will conquer this brimmed beanie. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but hell I'll figure it out someday.
Let's just hope it's before I'm 90.
