Skull Cap!

This is my first crochet in 15 years! I love it! Its made from denim eco-cotton from Red Heart. Pics were taken in mirror of myself, please ignore the model :) I do love this cotton thread, it just feels great.

Please excuse the blurry photo. Hope to have better pictures in the future.

I used a size I lighted hook. Love the lighted hooks. I now have 3 sizes, and plan to get all of them. Hat fits me ok, but was intended for husband. But, he has such a large head I don't know if it will fit (will find out tonight). Also it needs a tighter weave for him since he had skin cancer on top of his head and he needs to shield the top from sun. I plan to modify this hat and make him another.

I feel great finishing my first project after so many years away from crocheting. I just love crochet!

Well, I picked up the following crochet supplies after deciding to try crochet again after 15 years away.

Basic pack of hooks
Stitch markers
Plastic needles
Zippered yarn holder
3 different yarns, including a cashmere, I Love This Yarn etc.
Book-101 granny squares
couple small annies attic pattern books

Also picked up a few days later:
Mags: Crochet Today and Crochet!

Ordered/Subscribed to recently:
Annies Attic clubs: Hook&Needle club, Scrap Crochet
Mags: Crochet!, Crochet Today, Crochet World, Quick&Easy Crochet, Interweave Crochet.

And bought 4 crochet books from a local person. Found the cutest fish bath rug, and pumpkin afghan in one !

Also a Vera Bradley small duffel to put most items into.

I have taken apart the magazines and placed patterns into sheet protectors. Did this also with the granny aquare book. I will also take apart the books and place patterns into sheet protectors also.

I think I am ready to crochet. But, been so busy model stitching (cross stitch), and getting ready for a vacation trip end of month, that I havnt had time. I may have to wait till after the trip.

I have had fun buying stuff for Crochet and am so excited to get started again. I so enjoy finding patterns that I can't wait to crochet !!!
