Skull Caps Done!

Hi Everyone.

Thought I'd share a really cool skull cap pattern with you all.

http://www.members.aol.com/jSchlossma/skcap.html

This crocheted up really quickly and was a hit with all. I've made two so far. My 95 year old granny is getting one also. I got a picture of my dad modeling it ( it was so funny!) so i'll send for you all to see when I get the pictures back.

There are not instructions for a flower on it, so i'm off to search for a rose pattern.

Happy crocheting! (knitting!)
-Karen

Well, one of my daughters likes them, and another said she's like it if it were in a lime green. That's a hard color to find. I've got orders now for a black one and an orange one.That's a hard to color to find in yarn.
I finished another white one today. (these are great because you need such a small amount of yarn, you can use alot of leftover yarn)I did it with Bernat Baby Coordinate yarn. It's pretty funky because it has a sheen to it. Good for going to the bars.... LOL Just Kidding!

Very nice looking cap. I found a pattern for a knitted flower in a book I bought called "The Cool Girl's Guide to Knitting." The book only cost me $5 at AC Moore. I got it mainly to help learn the right way to do certain things, like change color, finish, etc. The knitted flower in this particular book only took me about 25 minutes to work up! Super easy!

Sorry, I forgot to check and see if it was knit or crochet. Well, now I know. I will see if I can find some crochet flower patterns. I don't crochet so I just assume that EVERYONE knits!

I was wondering if anyone's done any research as to what political persuasion knitters and crocheters are.

Are knitters more likely to be left leaning, while crocheters are more right leaning?

LOL! Hey, EVERYTHING's a political stereotype these days. Might as well make this one too, eh?

Nope. No research done. :)

All I know is that we are all good people.

(Celtic, are you from Canada, too?)

Nope, Western NY, actually but, with Dubya's recent nominations to the Supreme Court, along with other situations, I'm memorizing the words to "Oh Canada."
