Crochet and Crafting Need More Time Max's Crochet Beanie Pattern

It seems like I don't have enough hours in the day to do all I want to get done. I have lacked in the craft and crocheting time lately. I have requests to fulfill from my Grandkids but right now I have no time it seems or really desire to crochet which is so not like me. I am hoping that tomorrow will be a better day and the migraine will be gone and allergies will settle down and my crocheting mojo will be back. Do you ever feel that way or is it just me? I haven't felt like reading much either so wow I really am off my game. When I do get going again I have been asked by my Grandson to make his little sister a bear afghan like I made him when he was little. He still uses it so I told him I would and he wants it to be pink. So I better get back to it soon so I don't disappoint them.

One of the things I am working on is taking some of my Dad's ties and make memorial bookmarks and bracelets for the family out of them. I am still working on patterns so when I get them done I will share them with you.

As a final thought today I am sharing my pattern for a hat I made this Christmas for my Great Nephew Max. Hope you like it. I am human and not a professional pattern writer so hopefully it is an easy to understand pattern and no mistakes. If you use it please just mention where you got it and send me a picture of the finished item.

Back up and ready to share

After over two year wait our google fiber is in and we are back on the Internet and not just my phone. I have been busy crocheting and making up some patterns that I hope to share later. I hope to post at least once a week but for now just doing a happy dance that I am on line again.
At Christmas I made hats for the Grand kids and a poncho for my daughter so I kept busy. Now I am working on stuffed animals for the little grand kids and some ponchos and covers for others. I will get back to posting later this week. Thanks for hanging in there with me.
