Alex, if you can do dc, fpdc, and bpdc then you can make the hat!

It isn't scary! There's a bunch of tutes out there. I wish I could pull you through the internet and show you, b/c then you wouldn't be scared anymore. Tongue

Indigo Roses, how much fun would that be!  Grin

I just need to have a bash at it, I only started crochet when I was overdue with my 2 1/2 yr old and it's not my main craft so I go through phases of being obsessed with Crochet, or cross stitch, or papercrafts it's back to sewing at the mo. I think I may have a try at the pattern though as my Winter hat, with long cold Canadian winters you get a lot of time to 'nest'!! Thanks for the inspirational kick up the butt  Wink

It's not hard at all! I got a magic yarn ball from a craftster when I was a total crochet newb and she included a pattern for a basket that used fpdc and bpdc. Not hard at all. You make a dc but instead of crocheting into the stitch below you crochet around it.

I came back from Gatlinburg on Monday and had another surprise waiting for me when I walked in. Grin













Max from Where The Wild Things Are. You really just cannot beat this.  Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley I got Scar from the Disney store on my trip, there isn't one where I live ):< Alex also picked up on that I would be into Spongebob, and indeed I am Wink and included Krabby Patties...>_> Max ate them, and some Spongebob stickers.

Thank you so much!

I got my package from Rosie1981. She was worried it would be late, but it came so fast! We sent our letters from garden gnomes, so it was a gnome themed swap.



Here is the cute mushroom pouch Rosie crocheted. I love it. The top opens up!



These are awesome bottle cap magnets! I love them and I wanted some! Now that I see them in person, I am going to make some!



Here is everything together. I already ate some of the candy. Grin The lollypops are my favorites!

Thanks Rosie1981! Hope you get my package soon and like it! Thanks AmazingAlex, this was a fun swap  Cheesy

PSSS, Rosie also sent me my letter in a little tiny bottle, it is so cute. And I got a couple of great gnome stamps she carved from erasers. The are wonderful. They are at work and I am home sick, so when I get back to work I will take some pictures and post them. I was really ticked by the little letter in a bottle she sent me. And I am using the stamps at work  Roll Eyes as my "personal" signature.

Its time for me to upload my pictures of the awesome package I received from MadHatteh! I don't have a picture of the package unopened because well, I was so excited to get it I tore right into it. Smiley So on to my shoes! Prepare to be jealous fellow HP nerds. Cheesy
  the tops of them- the writing on one says "He turned back to Snape his eyes full of tears. After all the time? The other shoe with the beautiful deer says "Always said Snape."

side view it reads "For him," shouted Snape Expecto Pretronum! From the tip of his wand burst  the silver doe.

other side  "You've been raising him all this time, like a pig for slaughter-" and "But this is touching Severus, said Dumbledore. "Have you grown to care for the boy after all?"
the backs
  my extras! I got a bracelet, a precious octupus keychain, a mermaid silly band, some funnies printed on photo paper, a HP 5 print studio I've been playing with, some Pokemon cards! and some my little pet shop stickers

Thanks SO much Morgan! I love them so much! I've been wearing them for the past couple days and gotten so many compliments on them. Smiley
