Monkey Hat & More

I managed to make a child's hat for my Etsy Shop.  I love these Sock Monkey hats and had to try one.  I mostly followed the pattern here on Crochet in Color's site and did my own improvising at bit on edging etc.  Girls can wear with the flower or optional boys with topper pom pom.  Fits kids 4-12. 

Still plugging away at my crochet bag.  I figure another series of colours and it should be near desired depth, then the handles. 

After seeing this bag, a co-worker asked if I would make a runner type mat for her daughter's new dresser to protect the top in a nice bright pink and green.  So with yarn ready and new double ended circular hook, I am getting that going as well.  And I am also learning how to use this type of hook and practising more tunisian type crochet.

I know you cannot seen alot yet but it shows off the hook at least. ;)  LOL Also completed on the weekend another Tunisian square that I'm sort of still trying to do with the CAL with KRW Knitwear Studios, also in Ravelry. I believe we are to be on another tunisian stitch that I have yet to try out but I will fit it in.

That's it for now. Thank God tomorrow is Friday.  It's been a long week on a new shift at work.
