I've Made Friday Week 61

Good Morning Everyone.
I hope you are all having a good week
and are looking forward to the weekend.

Little Red has gone to his Grandparents for a couple of days.
It seems so quiet when he isn't here.
Hubby is at work all day so
it's crocheting central :-).

Little Red loved the Badger Hat.
He wore it to school last week.
It's lucky it got colder as he didn't look
as stupid wearing a hat.
I can't believe we are still having winter
temperatures and weather in May :-(
Warmth and sunshine would be really nice.

from Lisa from Pretty Things 55
Aren't they fantastic!
Little Red loves them!!!
I think I may alter the depth of the gloves slightly if I make another pair.
The pattern is easy to follow and very clear.
The only thing I think you need to be aware of is 
you need the following hooks:  K, I, F & G
I would of liked a gauge as I think mine turned out smaller than they should of.
I think that was what was wrong with my face sizing.
I think these gloves are great fun. 
Lisa has quite a few other designs so 
please check her shop out.

I also finished the free pattern:

Doesn't it look really good!
It was so easy to make.
There are really clear instructions. 
I went wrong on the hair but I think it still worked.

I read:
The Vampire Manifesto (Vampire Manifesto Book One) by Rashaad Bell
Even after finishing this book
I'm not sure.
I think I enjoyed it but I'm unsure about
the amount of things included in the story.
You've got:
Vampires, Werewolves, Mutants.
Parrarel universes & pandora's box.

I like the characters and it's well written
but did they have to go so quick at parts and add so much.
Madison is in highschool and at the start of the
story that's all she has to worry about.
Then things change and there is a $3.5 million price on her head.

I think I'd give this book 3.5

Now it's your turn
It doesn't have to be crocheting
anything you've made is more than welcome!
