Too late to celebrate?

Posted on

Hey there friends! Something happened to my Fourth of July post and unfortunately it’s taken me a while to realize it! Well, here it is again, albeit a little late at this point.

I’ll just summarize but I’ll say, my day was pretty patriotic! It started with a parade (Garrett and Ethan were jazzin it up in the Boy Scout float) with my parents, aunt and little cousins. The Scouts made a tank with cardboard and added a propane powered flamethrower! Wowza!

Very cool! After the parade I spent some time crocheting (surprise) and unfortunately a little time crying about the fact that i had forgotten sunscreen that morning. By the end of the day I had a nasty sunburn and a new hat to show for it. Thank goodness at least one of those is useful!

It’s Christmas in July and the word is stripes!!!

I’m going crazy with hats and loving it! Its been primarily crochet as of late but i think i might mosey on into knitting for a while. Maybe.

Good news: I have a new job (full time, thank you very much) so not only do I have an hour lunch break to hook hook hook, I’ll soon have some expendable cash dollars to use for *gasp* yarn! For the time being, I’m working with 5 different colors of Galway, a quality yet economical choice for wool. I’m keeping track to see how many pieces I can get out of these measly 1050 yards… Haha.

Here’s a sneak peak of som patterns I’ve hooked up recently.
