WIPs Wrestlemania Day 27 and another FO!!

This hat TOTALLY cracks me up.

From these pics you wouldn't even know that it is a hat.  
It looks like a full over the head furry ski-mask. 

It is pretty funny!  

So, I designed my own pattern for this.  I really like it.  The hat was super simple--of course knitting with fun fur is a little annoying, but the hat itself is super simple.  Then the eyes and nose really threw me.  I totally stalled out while contemplating how to do them.  My mom crocheted the nose and then she couldn't figure how to do the eyes.  I tackled three crochet projects and felt more confident in my crochet skills so I decided to give it a try.  I got mad crochet skillz!!  Hahaha!!  Anyhow, I think it came out great! :)  

London totally loves it.  He is wearing it right now.  Yup . . .  July, hot, humid, and super warm hat.  He LOVES it!  What more could a Mommy ask for??? :)

Updated August 6, 2009:  I linked this to Kimba's DIY Day over at A Soft Place to Land.  I always love checking out the amazing things that bloggers are making.  I thought that I couldn't participate because I'm not blogging about projects I am doing around my house--but today Kimba specifically said recipes and crafts count!  Yea!!  So, here I am in my first DIY party!  So, go check out what all of those amazing ladies have been up to.  It makes for great inspiration!!

Oh my goodness that is great! That is one cute Elmo!!

I remember when I was a girl and my mom made an Oscar costume for my brother. She just covered a football helmet with a green something and made him a cardboard trash can to wear, covered it in aluminum foil, and put straps on it so he could hang it from his shoulders.

I love this!
