The hat is done. It did not want to become a bucket hat, and it did not want to be based on the pattern that I had originally looked at.

ex- Bucket Hat
Pattern: made up
yarn: almost 2 balls of Coton Fifty by Bergere de France, bought at Bergere de France online
Color: pink (Valériane)
size needles: 3 mm crochet hook
care: machine wash
knitting time: 18May06-25May06
knitting fun: (crocheting fun) okish. I am not sure I like crochet. It is super fast, that s for sure. ( I hated the picture taking part, it s just impossible to get a picture, at least by myself, where the nose does not scream)
Modifications: too many, so it is actually my own pattern
new techniques learnt: none really, maybe the crab stitch I used for the brim, and then it was the first crochet project in something like 22 years (yeah, that scares me, too).

Mein Sommerhut ist fertig. Irgendwie gefaellt mir der doch besser fuer Alltag als meine uralte Baseball Kappe. Und ganz ohne Sonnenhut mag ich doch nicht sein auf dem Spielplatz. Ich hab schliesslich alles erfunden an dem Hut, und mich doch nicht auf das Muster gestützt, wie ich ursprügnlich vorhatte.

Mon chapeau d ete est fini. J ai fini par inventer le patron en le faisant. Mon premier objet au crochet depuis des lustres: je me souviens vaguement d une robe pour ma poupee quand j avais 12 ans.
