Thank God for My Mom and Her Crazy Crafty Friends....
I've been obsessing about the YeeHaw Lady Hat from the Stitch 'n Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker book since I first saw it. I admit, I bought the book for just that pattern. Bad, I know (but now there are actually a bunch of patterns I want to try).
Problem..... You can't get Lion Brand Lion Cotton in Canada. My solution... "heck, it's just dishcloth cotton...why don't I use Bernat Handicrafter?"
Yeah, whatever. I tried 4 different needle sizes, and can't get near to the right gauge.
But, yay for my mom and her crazy crafting friends, who drive all the way to the states for Crass Stitch stores! They hit a few craft stores for me and brought me back Lion Cotton.
So tonight, I start my hat. Yeehaw!
