3 Hats

I received an order for 3 hats. I finally was able to get them made up. 2 for girls and 1 for a boy. I really need some head mannequins. My poor son having to model for me.

I used a size H hook and Caron Simply Soft thread. For the flower hat, I used a pattern from RAKJ Patterns called Sweet & Sassy. The caps were loosely based on 3 boys & a ball of yarn‘s pattern called ribbed baseball hat. The flower is from Cult of Crochet flower headband and the Hello Kitty face, I simply crocheted an oval, added ears, embroidered eyes and nose and sewed it on the hat.

Except for the picture of the Hello Kitty, I took these with my iPad. I’m wishing I had taken them with the camera. I will try to get some pictures indoors with the camera, they may turn out better.

I’m really hoping that they’ll fit.

Groovy Granny – Oceana

An online friend of mine and his wife are having a baby and I wanted to make a blanket for them. I don’t often do the traditional baby blanket, unless it’s asked of me, and this was no exception.

This beauty was made using Caron Simply Soft in Oceana, white, black, mint and ocean.

I used a pattern found in Herrschner’s Blue-Ribbon Afghans (Crochet Treasury) and it is currently my favorite pattern.
