Pony Crochet Hat 3 Part II

Well, I've got the crown shaping done and now I'm working on making the sides longer. So that they will cover my ears but I have this lovely bowl shape.

Dinner Tonight

I wanted Sloppy Joes, so how to make sloppy joes from scratch. I scoured Google looking for a yummy recipe. I found Rachael Ray's sloppy joe recipe that looked very yummy. Went through her grocery list and noticed I had about half of it. So I browned my one pound of burger added a can of fire roasted salsa style diced tomatoes, yummy, tablespoon of ground meat smokehouse maple, a good shake or two of garlic, black pepper, about a tablespoon of Worcestershire and about a teaspoon of red wine vinegar, a half a chopped onion, it looks yummy, smells delicious. Now I'm just cooking it down to get the little thick.
It tasted even better!!!

Pony hat #3

This is my third crochet attempt. I am teaching myself to crochet as I make these hats. I have definitely come to appreciate crochet a lot more. I do knit 90 percent of the time but I am really enjoying this new adventure in yarn with a hook. This is the crown of the hat and next I will be doing the shaping I think. But so far I am very pleased with how it is going. My stitches are becoming more even and relaxed.
