Two Finishes in One Day

Mary Grace of Hooked on Needles shared a cute crocheted pincushion. I decided to make one for a pincushion swap I'm in this summer.

Last night I tried out the pattern. It was the first time I crocheted in the round and didn't get it right. Over night I had a revelation and realized what I was doing wrong. This morning, after sleeping in until 7:30 (yeah!) and breakfast I pulled out new yarn and by noon I had this pincushion done. I love it! Thanks to Mary Grace for posting wonderful directions. There will be more of these in my future.
This afternoon and evening I finished my secret project.
Mr. E now has his own gray hoodie.
What's special about a gray hoodie, you ask? Let me show you. This is Bill Belichick, coach of the New England Patriots. He wears a gray Patriots team hoodie nearly every game during the season. Mr. E needs to be appropriately attired and since gray hoodies are not made for little ones, one made by Dema was the right thing to do.
When Mr. E is here on Tuesday I will get photos of him wearing it. Of course, now that the secret is out maybe mommy will bring him over earlier and he can try it on.

I think I'm done crocheting for now. Time to focus on my stack of stitcheries.

Happy Weekend!
Sweet P

Wonderful Paula! Your pin cushion turned out the yarn you used! And the hoodie is just too cute! Maybe it will bring the Patriots good luck this coming season! I love football season...lots of handwork gets done and the hot weather is usually long gone!
