Okay! One of these overhyped weather events finally paid off. The blizzzzzard of 201111111 did it's job and dumped a mountain of snow all over us. The kids are in heaven! And I'd have really enjoyed our cozy shut-in snow day yesterday if it wasn't for the 5 hours of shoveling we did yesterday. Today we have another snow day to contemplate nature but of course it's -10000000 degrees so no playing in the snow.
They played it up yesterday though
After we shoveled out (and were able to shake off that panicked trapped feeling) I got a chance to try some more crochet. I made a headband from a bit of my hoarded Anna Maria Horner flannel and then crocheted this little border on it. It's nothing fancy. I wanted to try one like in those books I showed the other day but... couldn't get past the 2nd row! So all I finished were the scallops. The trouble I have is getting under the stitches and not going straight through the yarn. I hardly notice that yarn is made of twisted threads when I knit but with crochet it seems like I'm working with a loose bundle of string.
