Other Stuff

There has been a lot of talk over at Crochet Partners abut the Crocodile Stitch.  I finally sat down a few days ago and made this cap.   I didn't have any idea what to do with it, I just wanted to make it.  Does that sound familiar to anyone? When I finished it, my roommate got all excited and said she wanted it.  OK!  It's hers.  It matches her pretty blue eyes.  I did use a larger hook, so it took more than the called for amount of yarn.  Which explains the solid color on the crown.  This cap is also crocheted from the brim to the crown.
The other thing I have finally finished is the Turkey Bookmark.  A few years ago when I belonged to the Bookmark Exchange at Crochet Partners, I was trying to find a bookmark for Thanksgiving, which is one of my fave holidays.  I couldn't find anything, so I took parts of this fridgie, and another fridgie, and some basic bookmark ideas and made my own.  Well, I took pretty good notes on what I did, but in my excitement, I mailed the bookmark before I took a picture.  So, the pattern has been sitting in my folder for a long time.
When I got my notes out and was ready to test the pattern I didn't have any dark brown size 10 thread.  What---!  So, Crochet Partners came through again.  Karen from Kansas sent me a whole ball of Fudge Brown.  It is beautiful thread.
Anyway, here is the Turkey Bookmark.

That crocodile stitch is so versatile. Your cap is lovely! I'd never seen the stitch before a few weeks ago; now I'm seeing it everywhere online. Funny how that happens.
