Day 4 of Because Vikings

While Halloween is six days away, my youngest son and his friend need their crochet Viking helmets by Wednesday. For whatever I reason I thought it would go more quickly than it has, and so as I entered into day 3 and day 4 of this viking adventure, I spent my crochet time this weekend making crochet horns for said crochet Viking helmets.

I managed to get six done; four for the helmets for my son and his friend, and two for a third crochet Viking helmet that is meant to be a surprise:

Six crochet horns for three future crochet Viking hats

I was, in a way, sorry to be done with the horns, because by the time I got to the fourth one, I had gotten in what could best be described as a crochet Viking helmet horn groove, and I probably could have made at least three more in the time it took me to make this incredibly modest progress on the base of one of the helmets:

Practice, it seems, even makes crochet Viking helmet horns more prefect, or at least helps you get the done more quickly.

And with Wednesday now just three days away (and this is a deadline I really don’t want to miss!), I had best pick up my hook, yarn, and crochet tension regulator and get back to work.
