I took a long time to get going yesterday; 
 I've had too many evenings out!  I did finally manage to put the binding on the rainbow quilt
It's labeled and ready to head to the washer/dryer
 and then to the donation pile!
I saw a cool YouTube video on making this hat with the Granny Square All in One yarn.  I made two hats, an earwarmer headband and have enough left for another headband.  It is made with what she calls the Moss stitch in crochet;  it is my favorite stitch for dishcloths so it was an easy stitch to make, albeit in the round this time!  She also recommended a larger hook (k) and the yarn was lofty enough to make it a very nice density for a hat!
This hat is following her pattern-almost. 
 I wanted the top to be less gathered and more tapered.
  It was better but too slouchy for my taste.
The second hat turned out even better!
  A very enjoyable adventure in crochet!
Bill has been working on making old boards usable for a platform for the lanai furniture-more on it later.
We will be nailing it together next week on location!


  1. Those boards are beautiful! Great idea for the pool area.

  2. Nice hats! Your crochet ability is impressive. I love anything with rainbows, and that quilt is beautiful!

  3. Great finish on the quilt! Those hats are lovely. I had to look twice because at first I thought it was a photo from the designer's page-they looked so professionally done.
