Since I've been sick, I haven't done a lot in the way of crocheting.
I did make a hat for the grandson when it turned cold. Here he is wearing it.
Daughter made another hat for him that is much cuteness. The pattern for the newborn size owl hat which fits grandson (9 weeks old) is http://www.repeatcrafterme.com/2012/04/crochet-owl-hat-pattern.html . Other sizes up to adult can be found at http://www.repeatcrafterme.com/2012/09/crochet-owl-hat-pattern-in-newborn.html .
If you have never made a hat, go ahead and give it a try. I had been crocheting a lot of years before I made my first hat and now I can't imagine why I waited so long.
If you knit or want to learn to knit, I saw this little hat at Bev's Country Cottage that looks simple. I don't knit but I have tried several times and I know basics. I haven't tried this hat but I am thinking on it.
I have a scarf started but just haven't been able to get up the energy to work on it.
