Green and Brown Beanie Hat

Warm and fuzzy beanie hat. This super warm beanie was crocheted from two strands of bulky weight yarn held together. The green is a warm moss color and the brown is highlighted with stands of green so it blends together perfectly.

This is the perfect hat to wear when you are out playing in the snow or out running the city streets!

So it is the new year and I am again reflecting on my artistic process as well as what it means to be an artist in the world. I am in the  process of rearranging my home workspace in the hopes that it will give me a more productive work space. I have recently taken the TV off my desk in the hopes that I will be more productive in my lesson planning for the week and will also give me a place to set up the small, portable sewing machine that I purchased. Today I had velvet laid out on my rug for a dress that I am making and I realized how helpful it would be to have a table to spread it out on. Right now I am limited on space so I have to make due with what I have.
I am definitely in the process of experimentation right now. I am playing with different materials and rearranging my workspace. I also have a few t-shirts lying around that I want to make into a laundry bag to replace the giant plastic bag that I have been carrying back and forth to the laundromat. As for my crocheting, I am almost finished with the shawl that I started in the Czech Republic. It is constantly reminding me of traveling and I am a bit restless to explore a new culture again. Hopefully as I continue to rearrange things, it will also help me to rearrange my thought process and help me to see new opportunities.  And hopefully I will be traveling again soon!
