I have already mentioned my daughters 21st birthday was a few weeks ago. So, the Monday evening before her birthday, I was all prepared, pressies bought and wrapped, cake planned, restaurant booked.
Then laying in bed, I checked my email for one last time to find a crocheted Minion hat pattern.
I bounced out of bed shouting something about having to make her it RIGHT NOW - Hubby shouted at me to get back in, it was after midnight after all. But at 7.30 am I was up and rooting through my yarn stash to find suitable yarns. Really good job I didn't need to go yarn shopping as I just didn't have the time!
At 8.00am on the dot, I sat down with my TV planner to watch the previous evening's Celebrity Big Brother (my guilty pleasure) and got to work.
At 8.30am I had this....
By 9.00am I had started to add the black line, and having finished Big Brother started to watch Long Lost Family.
By 9.30am I was back on the yellow.
By 10.00am I had pulled it all out :( It was just looking way too small. I had also run out of things to watch so flicked onto some program about Border Control in Australia. Ooooo, the things people try to sneak in.
By 10.30am, I was back to black.
By 11.00am I had built up the yellow again and added extra rows to make it bigger. Still watching Border Control.
By 11.30am I had an ear flap.
By 12.00 noon I had two earflaps and an edging.
By 12.30pm I had plaits and an eye.
And by 1.00pm I had finished. (I was also very bored of daytime TV and had a numb bum!!)
It's still on the small side in my opinion. Let's call it 'snug', but she loved it and that's all that matters :)
