 A bit of background.  My mom passed away almost 10 years ago & my dad was left behind.  About 2 years ago, he met a lovely woman & last year they got married.  Somewhere in between them meeting & getting married I had major spinal surgery & lost the use of my hands for a long time.  While I was recovering, my Auto Immune arthritis really started to ravage my body, especially my hands.  Anyway, so my dad got married & I now have 2 step sisters, a brother in law, 3 nephews & a niece.  So I have not crocheted in about 2.5 years & I was missing it immensely.  A few weeks ago, I decided to give it a shot, even tho I have nerve damage in my hands & my fingers look like sausages.  Well, I am happy to report that I can STILL crochet, albeit in small amounts.  I made these hats for my 2 oldest nephews & they ADORE them!


 

The olive colored 1 is for my 16 year old nephew, who is a 1st degree black belt in karate & is pretty much a badass, except he loves his Aunt Smiley  The striped 1 is for my 12 year old nephew, who THINKS he's a badass, and likely will be 1 day Smiley

Nice caps. I like the striped one best.  Glad you are able to crochet a bit again. It looks jolly neat for someone whose hands are being awkward.  Hope it doesn't hurt your hands too much.

thank you so much! I have to really pace myself, because my hands go numb VERY easily & if I overdo it, not only do they go numb, but they hurt like the dickens afterwards.  The real problem is, that once I start crocheting, I don't EVER want to stop!
