Last winter was very, very mild. I can't imagine we'll have two mild winters in a row so I want to ensure that my family and their heads and necks and bodies will be nice and toasty with the cooler weather (hence the crochet hook in my hand.)
I made two beanies for each family member last year, but somehow both my boys lost one of theirs each. Bummer. I started a new hat for my little guy last night and I should finish it within the next day or two. As long as there is nothing exciting on the boob tube.
Or as long as I have finished the newest book I downloaded to my Kindle.
Or as long as I don't want to go to bed early. ;)

Anyway, I finished up two thick headbands for my daughter. She has a lot of hair to keep her head warm and isn't a huge fan of hats anyway, so I think I'll make her a few more of these to keep her ears warm.
They are really easy to make and I didn't even use a pattern. I just used a simple double crochet stitch and attached the two ends with a single crochet stitch. It took me all of thirty minutes to make each one so I might make her one to match every outfit she owns.
No, I'm kidding.
Anyway, my boys don't wear scarfs (even though I lovingly crocheted them all one for Christmas last year) so I think I'll crochet another cowl for my daughter and I.
A new beanie for Micah to go along with the one I made him last year and a nice big chunky sweater for my little girl and I think I'll have my family and their winter accessories covered.
Happy Sunday afternoon to you!
