I worked on a bearded beanie (photo above) last weekend. The pattern is listed on http://imtopsyturvy.com/crochet-striped-beanie-pattern-multiple-sizes/ and http://imtopsyturvy.com/crochet-bobble-beard-pattern-multiple-sizes/ My daughter has been wanting some for herself and the kids so I was experimenting with it. I scared Hubby when he saw me! LOL!
I am also wanting to knit myself an earwarmer soon, pattern can be found here:http://imtopsyturvy.com/knit-ear-warmer-with-crochet-flower/. I'm also getting interested in finding a good plain knitted scarf pattern.
We will see how much I manage to get done. I moved to a different area at work and I work all the time now and don't get home till 6:30 or 7:00 sometimes!
