Wow, I love the color combo, very nice. The skull you have modeling the hats is quite fab.

I like, I hope the baby loves it Cheesy

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Don't feel like your the only one. For my first blanket, I wanted to give my mom something for Mother's Day. I saw that it was increasing and decreasing. I was half way on it and it looked horrible. Mine compared to yours, mine was worse. So I took it apart and tried again. Luckily I didn't have to do it the third time. I did it.

I had a lot of trouble with rectangles when I was first crocheting.  Count stitches every row for awhile and eventually you'll see where you keep adding.

Your finished object looks lovely! Great work. And personally the hat with "mistakes" is nice too. I doubt anyone would notice it was a mistake if you didn't tell them. Wink

My first scarf that I ever made I decreased somehow and didn't realize til the end, and when I tried the second time, I kept folding it in half on each row to make sure it still matched up. It's an easy way to keep yourself in check without counting, as long as it's a square or rectangle project!

I don't know if this is stating the obvious, or if it will be helpful, but when I crochet I count every single row, but only up to a repeating count of five.  As long as I know what number I'm supposed to end on it means I can easily keep count even if I'm a bit distracted by something else.  It's also useful if I get interrupted or want to put the work down halfway through a row - I just make sure that I always stop after completing a fifth stitch.  This way of counting means that it doesn't matter how long a row is supposed to be, just what the count number of the final stitch should be.  For example if I was stitching a row of, say, 78 stitches I only have to know that the final stitch of each row is on count 3. 

I do occasionally use a different count for, say, a ripple pattern, but I always keep the number as low as possible.
