I am proud of this little guy because I crocheted him while holding the yarn in my left hand, which is a much more sensible way to crochet than holding it in the right hand, which I typically do. It was weird to try something new, but after a while it started feeling more natural. I'm going to force myself to crochet this way from now on!
And here is Roxy, displeased by all the attention this little guy is getting.

- I was going to be all clever and write down instructions for how I knitted the hat, but I waited too long to write this blog post and have totally forgotten what I did. Sorry!
