I like to make things for my kids, Kay, Justin and Martin are easy they like hats so I can always find a new style that they may like or sometimes they request one. Nick is not much of a hat wearer so whenever I find a project I can do for him I do it. I decided to make a camera case. He did not get a case and his camera was getting all dusty just sitting on his desk. So I whipped one up for him. He also has a Canon Powershot camera similar to mine.
I used a different technique for his though. I used rows and in the round crochet to produce his case. It was done in green of course because that is his favorite color. I will be posting a photo tutorial of the pattern in the future. So stay tuned for that. For now here are some photos of his camera case.
I finished this little skull cap up the other day. It was a front post double crochet pattern that I wanted to do. I need more practice with this stitch and this was a cute little cap. It worked up well except when I missed a double crochet way back in round 3, I did not notice it until I had finished round 8, and had to pull it out back to that mistake. Then later on during the rework I missed a front post so had to pull it out again. I really should not try to do this stitch when I am tired or have other things going on around me. Lol 😛
The photo shoot was easy enough just one items to get in the picture.
Here are the Particulars and the item photos. You can find it on ebay here.

I have not tried to make a chevron stitch project yet. I thought this would be a good project to try stitch rather than a whole afghan. The beanie is actually v-stitches strategically placed to form a chevron pattern so it doesn’t really count as a chevron.
