(Will post pictures of me wearing the items soon, so you get a better idea of how they look.)
The Hair Tube. Love it!!! Using a larger hook, and crochet yarn, it is very flexible. I don't have dreads, but do have lots of curly hair to tame. This thing looks great, is comfortable and was easy to make.
The blanket, not finished, but at least still getting worked on. Maybe not as fast as I would like, but at least I am picking it up every couple days and making progress. I have even figured out the layout of all the flowers.
