Sorry for my absence. I been working, crafting, creating things for activeworld's AWRPG, and also getting involved with my boy's cub scouts.
Good news is a new wacky beanie pattern is in the works. I have a scarf idea to go along with it that should make a great set for the holiday season. Will be posting the results as soon as things are ready.
As a side project, I been working on this cute Toothless Dragon made by Feathereddragon. Take a look at how cute this is http://feathereddragon.deviantart.com/art/Crochet-Toothless-the-Dragon-158419641
She's a very talented lady and going to college. If you like what you see, get in touch with her to get the pattern. I am sure your kids will love it....shoot I have adults that want me to make them one!! hee hee
