It’s been forever.

It’s so embarrassing to come to my blog and see how dormant it has been. What a shame. I’ve been busy with family obligations, work, and technical editing. I don’t even feel like I’m much of a reflective person any more, and my crochet and knitting projects are almost all on hold, sadly. Does anyone read blogs any more what with Facebook and Twitter? Not that I have much time to post there either.  Well, without making and promises, I hope to be blogging more regularly.

Que verguenza siento al ver que tan dormido esta mi blog. Con obligaciones con mi familia, el trabajo, y la correccion de manuscritos, mis trabajos de crochet y tejer esperan mi atencion. ¿Es que la gente lee los blogs actualmente con Facebook y Twitter? Sin hacer promesas, espero escribir aquí con más regularidad.

Soy mas o menos nuevo al crochet, por lo menos los amigurumis. Aquí, en esta cuenta de flickr que encontré, hay un monton excelentes, con detalles fenomenales. No los tejí yo! 🙂

Pork Pie Hat

Pork Pie Hat
The hat is finished. It didn’t fit me, so my son claimed it as his. This was a cinch to crochet up and didn’t take long at all. The firmness of the cotton and the tighter gauge makes the hat hold up well.

Crocheted Hat

IMGP0226I’m trying my hand at crocheting, too, after so many years. I can’t believe how stiff my fingers get, I’m all tense to the point where my left hand is tingling. I’m working on the relaxation bit. This is the Pork Pie hat from Knit.1 There are a number of errors in the directions. I’m sending them my observations so they can include them on their errata page.
