Once I finish the sleeves I plan on finishing with two rows of half double crochet in black. Maybe by Saturday.

He is my friend on days like today when Music City is cool, rainy, and pretending that it knows that the seasons have changed. I know I know he doesn't look like he belongs to a woman, but that's because his lovely wool/angora blend yarn was purchased to make a scarf for my ex-boyfriend (last November). He's wonderful really, made up from my own mind with a mesh stitch done in double crochet. His gray trim is done in single and half double crochet. I just kind of came up with the button and tab, creating as I went. Once again the yarn is something whose name I can't recall because I purchased it last year at the LYS. I even have a picture of Lux lovingly embracing my cold neck...
See don't we look happy :) . Lux has a sister in the making her name is Blaze (started out as the back from the blazer in the Happy Hooker book) she will be appearing shortly. Lux and Blaze will also be getting a cousin who will go to live with one of the wonderful ladies that works in my school's dining hall (the cousin has no gender or name yet). I think this is the beginning of Nappy Threadz Custom Crochet... What do you think?

*The first is the Kinky Reggae from Afya's Hip Hats/Cool Caps (red heart acrylic)*The second is my travel crochet hook roll (it has crochet buttons and cabled detailing)(some random Bernat yarn)
*The next two are random hats (Red heart acrylic)
*The one after that is my "convertible hat" it looks like a cloche, fedora, or bucket hat depending on how you wear it It started out as the fedora from Afya's book, but I stopped following the pattern about half-way through and just went with it lol.(I'm thinking of going back and doing a black or brown band on it maybe with a button and tab or something)(lion brand wool-ease)
* Last but not least is my FAVORITE hat. It was my first one ever and it's also the softest warmest thing ever. (Lion Brand Homespun yarn)
The yarn is a multi-tonal blue wool I got from my LYS, and I can't remember the name since I got the two skeins I have of it like last year sometime. I'm currently working on two neck warmers that I'm going to post pictures of sometime in the next few days.. I know I'm a bad blogger cause I'm so frequently absent, but lordy if you knew how seldom I get to crochet , I swear you'd understand :)
