Etsy Zoo and Crocheting with a Double Hook

I'm not quite sure what I want to work on today. Yesterday I started a lap blanket in yellow and black stripes so I could learn to crochet with a double ended hook. That is coming along nicely. Since it's a practice piece though, I don't have quite enough yellow or black to finish it, so I'll have to put some other colors in there or see if I have more of those hidden in my stash.

I definitely want to paint today though. I'm just not sure what I want to paint. The ETSY ZOO animal this week is MOUSE so something with a mouse theme would be good. Joining the zoo is free and joining Etsy is free, so if you tend to make animal themed crafts, come join us.

I also ordered beads for the next Bead Challenge on Etsy. I like the colors much better this time around.

I just signed up for Technorati over here: Technorati Profile

Currently I am working on pyrography. I made two wooden plaques last night. I'll show you photos.

My craft for today was to take a basic cartwheel sunhat and decorate it for a wedding. I wanted it to have a ribbon streaming down my back. So I entwined some pale purple netting with a purple metallic scarf and wrapped it as a hatband around the crown. Now I have to secure it all down so it won't blow off or fall off if I bend over. I also need to put a new bead on the chin strap. I was hoping to do something a little more elaborate but I'm drawing a blank. Maybe I'll have a new inspiration in the morning.
