That hat was made by Tina, a girl in our crochet and knitting group. I want to make that hat too. I wore it for the picture to see if I like it on my head.

I have frogged more times on this project than I have in any other work. It's probably because I make careless mistakes. I also get my place lost, when I watch telly or talk to hubby.
However, I managed to get the second clue done and I am happy.

Fortunately I have a dish in my office, to pour the candies into it, instead of eating everything before scanning. It's a good trick to eat licorice before lunch. Although I have a "sloppy Joe"-type lunch today (multigrain bread, hamburger meat and cheese), I don't feel hungry now.
I love "sloppy joes" . We used to make them quite often when my son was a kid. He's not a kid any more, he has his own kid, and another one coming soon.
Talking about kids, our other grand kid, the one who just had his first birthday, decided to put a doughnut inside the VCR. His 3 year old sister goes to the computer, finds a picture of her "boyfriend" and prints it. The parents had to take the paper and ink cartridges out, because she was printing pictures for her friends.
While I am thinking of candies and cookies, drinking green tea (cold, in a bottle), eating healthy food (I said "thinking of candies and cookies"), I am watching Copa America soccer games as well as FIFA U-20 games. I even understand some of the language now. Specially the word "Gol". One of the commentators will say that at least five times after a goal. It feels good, when the goal is done with a team that I like, not when the other team gets a goal. You know, don't you?
Oh, and then the crocheting part. I am getting very uncertain of my abilities to finish the summer top. I just keep making little "fillers" and have no idea where they should go. I call them "scrumblettes". I have used the Irish Crochet technique, in freeform style, whatever that is. Here is a sample of some. I like making rings, as you can see:
The background color is icky, please forgive me for choosing that view.

With a crochet hook and lots of skill I was able to "fix" the problem, and if anyone sees it in the picture, then just ignore it, and look at the whole picture.
I am going to work on the summer top now. I am glad I finished the first clue.
