My boy called me last week asking if i would crochet him and a friend a beanie hat. I happily said yes. I think I've made at least fifty of these hats for Chris and his friends, since I first came across the pattern in the book, Stitch 'n Bitch Crochet: the Happy Hooker, by Debbie Stoller. In fact they're still wearing those first hats that I made them. The guys really seam to go for this hat. The pattern is called "Boy Beanie" by Laura Killoran. You can view the details on my ravelry page, here.
Yesterday I spent some time browsing a local thrift store and found two bags of yarn for seven dollars! And all of it good wool too! I love finding a good bargain...makes me happy. :)
