Ta-da! Here is my Carpenter Hat, which I made online! Meaning, I was chatting on the monthly Crochet-A-Thon from Crochetlist and having great fun, all at the same time as making this. And they said I couldn’t multi-task! I was testing this pattern for Jackie over at the Crochetville forums. She very kindly gave me permission to put up this photo here.

Hey! Who shrank my head when I wasn’t looking?!

But seriously, the CAT was great fun, and I didn’t feel like a firsttimer at all!!! It’s a good thing it only happens once a month, though, because it’s far too distracting and I had to tear myself away from the comp to go cook/clean/breathe/whatever.
