Dinosaurs DO Exist!

Ok guys. I’m gonna level with ya. Aside from feeling like patient zero of the zombie apocalypse (ie: cold from hell), I’m in a bit of a downward swing. Depression is cruel mistress and she has me in her bony clutches. It has been rough wanting to do much of anything but I am forcing myself to do this.

I’m crocheting my son a dinosaur hat.

My first larger crochet project. Not so big I won’t finish it and the excited look in my son’s eye when he sees the progress keeps me going.

“Mom. You making that?” He says with chubby finger pointing at the pattern.

“Yup.”

“For me?”

“Yup.”

“Thank you, mom!” He squeals followed by a giant spaghetti sauce soaked kiss to my cheek.

Love that kid. And look! I did an ear flap!

The darker green piece in the last pic was for the muzzle. See? This is what it will look like (hopefully) when all is said and done. The colors are not exact but…

  1. I might have to make this too. I got a bag with two shades of green yarn in it at the Salvation Army recently & have been looking for a hat to make for my four year old. His favorite color is green….dark green.
    Making things for your kids is so rewarding. Your son will love it all the more because he got to watch you make it.
