So its been a while...

For starters, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and all that stuff.

I got a bit busy with all the Christmas things, and then working pretty solidly since (just had my third day off since boxing day) so my craft time has been limited, coupled with the fact that I went on a huge reading kick...

But I'm back! With a Shark Hat.

That is me, wearing my half completed Shark Hat. At the moment its just tail and body/hat but I'm finished that part and now just have to make the fins!

Here it is lying flat:

I based it on this pattern but that hat is for a kid, and I wanted it to fit an adult.. or rather, me. So I made it up as I went along, and could never ever write a pattern for it because it was mostly 'oh, lets increase here, and a couple more times in the next couple of minutes" which might have been spaced over three rows, or just one, I'd never know.
Not sure if I want to do the teeth the same as that pattern, or if I want to make up another way. Trial and error I guess. :)

I've got a sewing machine in the boxing day sales ($300 down to $80!!) and acquired some circular knitting needles, and a whole heap more wool and some embroidery floss, so I'm coming up with some projects to play with all my new pretty things! :)
