Great weekend of hats and blocks

I had another very productive weekend.  I found a new pattern I wanted to try for some chemo caps. I found it on Ravelry.  It is called Olivia's Butterfly. I know this is a strange photo but I had a very hard time getting a picture of the butterfly detail.

While I can knit I do knit rather slowly.  Crocheting on the other hand is a game a play with myself where I want to beat my own best time. It does make for a very productive adventure. 

Is this the cutest hat ever.  You can change the size by adding a row or two in the middle or changing your hook size.  I found the pattern at lunch time on Friday. 

I managed to make 2 Friday night,

2 on Saturday

and another on Sunday night after making 12 of these  blocks in the afternoon.

Glutton for punishment that I am, I made another one tonight same as the last one, just couldn't take another photo of them.  For some perspective, the largest of these hats fits my head.  They take me between an hour and an hour and a half to do.

I need to stop crocheting for a while because I have 3 quilting projects with deadlines due in the next 3 weeks and a couple of BOMs for this month that I haven't started yet.

Have a great week.


  1. Wow! You are on a roll...a great roll with your projects.

    I love the butterfly detail in the chemo caps. I do the same thing when I am crocheting...race against my best time on a row. I am a much faster crocheter than I am knitter.

    Amazing too that you made "12" of those perfect blocks in one day. Oh how I need to experience even one day of your level of productivity!

  2. Those are very sweet chemo caps. Love the churn dash block with the sneaker center.

  3. HI!!!! Love the hats and the blocks!!!!! You were very very busy!!!!!

  4. You are a speed demon with a crochet hook , great job on some very nice hats !

  6. The chemo hats are lovely, what a wonderful caring gift
