This little elf of a girl is sporting what is supposed to be a tam. I was over there on Guinifer's blog checking out her pretty little tams and decided I would try my hand at it. The pattern is Autumn in Garrison by Kate Gagnon Osborn. I think it MUST be blocked. . . and yeah, bound off. Maybe then I will look like it's supposed to. And maybe I should have checked my gauge before I started.
Finally, I have a big bag of cotton yarn and I'm not afraid to use it - nor am I afraid of the Ben Franklin tin crochet needle from my grandma's stash. I might make this into a throw or just get as far as a pillow cover. It's a zippy little project - completely mindless and quick. If you are even slightly inspired to try your hand at crochet or to dust off those needles, you must check out this blog: Attic 24. It's amazing. Just scroll down and dig into all that color.
