Nearing the End of July with a mohawk


Wow! Tomorrow will be the last day of July. The month has just disappeared.  I can already feel August slipping through my fingers with all this talk of back to school and everyone thinking ahead to September. They forget that there is still a lot of summer left.

Enough of that, this past week I have finished the world's cutest hat for my hair stylist's unborn child.
I didn't have a baby handy so I used one of my old teddy bears to model the hat. 

My stylist is planning on getting the first baby pictures with her son wearing this. It melts my heart thinking about it.

I crocheted a simple hat with the ear flaps then I did a fish tail braid for the ties under the chin.  The mohawk part was inspired by the technique of rug hooking.  I'm not sure if you did this as a child, but I remember learning it at daycare.

Have you been watching the Olympics? I seem to be watching a lot of swimming and gymnastics in the evenings. It gave me time to I finish a bulky red cable stitch tuque.  I will be posting pictures very likely in my next post.

Speaking of next posts, I'll see you then.

Much love,


p.s. I've created a Flickr, you can check it out here.
