So this weekend did not go as I would have liked. I did crochet for a while on Monday but none of the products came out like I thought they would. I think I am a pretty good crocheter (advanced beginner) but for some reason, I couldn't get the pattern to work for me. Good thing the designer was/is willing to help me. Oh yeah, the project that I spent all day working on was a newsboy cap. Let's just say, I haven't given up just yet. I know the problem for me is that I have never worked with a Q hook. This thing is so big and bulky. I worked the pattern three times so far and each time, I get closer to what I want the hat to look like. As for the Side to Side Cowl Neck sweater...I will get to it ( I had a change of heart regarding the yarn choice).

As you all know, I fell behind in my English 101 class in the fall. After the deaths of my son's father and my stepfather, I just couldn't get back on track. I took an INC and now I am trying to complete the work. I spent some time today organizing my work and I am focused and ready to get started again. I will keep you all posted.

I also took so before pictures to show you all of the soon to be craft space. I will post them in the morning. I promise. Just know that the space is a little bit of a mess right now.

After vowing not to waste any more time on HIM, he finally called (in the middle of the night) and asked me to come get him. Of course he didn't call until Saturday/Sunday but at least he called...Have I mentioned, I LOVE HIM!!!

Peace and blessings...

Some times you have to step away from a project and it helps when you return to it. In particular what problems are you have with your newsboy cap. Glad to hear you are back on track. Looking forward to your craftroom.

Best of luck on finishing your newscap. Is you following a pattern also omg that Q hook you is using isn't it way to big. I did mines with a M for one newsboy cap and the other with a K but, Q I think is way to big. Again best of luck need any help just YELL.:)

I can certainly see that you have a lot going on!!! Hard to believe it's almost been a year away from OHSR. Zaria is sooo big! Anyway, I hope to write more often this year, if I can find the time.
