Toddler Hats

I finished a few more toddler hats this week and I think they also turned out cute.  It's time to stop making stuff for my girls - they wont be able to wear them all, so I must move on to having items ready to ship and to put in the boutique in town. 

Christmas shopping is complete and I have started the Holiday Christmas candy cooking.  Monday I wrapped 200 old fashioned carmels and made a batch of Boston Cream.  Today is another couple of batches of different flavored carmels and then Old fashioned fudge and penuche.  My crochet projects will be my relaxation time tonight after a long day standing at the stove - but I love it!

I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season

Toddler Hat with Pompom

A friend of mine wanted a hat to match her daughters new coat for winter.  The colors on the coat don't really match the hats that are out there right now, but I'm sure there is yarn that will.  She purchased this pattern from "Inner Hooker" http://www.innerhooker.bigcartel.com/product/basic-earflap-beanie-crochet-pattern and I tried it out last night for Brooklynn.  It works up really quick and I think it turned out darling.  I have to make another one for Taylee and then as soon as we get the yarn, I can make one up in a jiffy for my friend.  This website has a bunch of really cute patterns.  If you are looking for some, go check it out.

I took a picture of her wearing it, but it wasn't light enough and she wouldn't sit still very well, so this is what you get.  I love pink and black and have another one made that I will post after christmas since it's a gift, but I think it's darling.

NFL Steelers Hat

This is the latest addition to the collection of NFL hats.  Sometimes it's not easy to match yarn to a sports team color.  For instance, the Steelers color is a yellow, which the logo is, but yarn colors lately have been quite bright and I haven't been able to find just the right tone.  The closest I could get was "Bright Yellow" and it's almost flourescent and I personally didn't think it looked to great next to the logo.  As I went shopping today, I saw this "Gold" color and it fits the best with the logo.  In the store, it seemed a little more orange than I wanted.  I'm actually quite happy with how it matches up now that the hat is complete.

NFL Bears Mohawk hat

Another NFL hat order complete.  I'm getting quite the collection of logos :)  Once I have all my orders sent out, I will be able to start on extras to sell at the local boutique and leave some ready to ship here on the blog. 

My sister had an idea for her father in law - and I'm sure it's one that may be out there already, but I'm going to make a hat that has the mohawk going around the middle of the hat so that it looks like a balding guy hair. (clown wig comes to my mind)  Now to decide on the colors...hmmmm.  I also have a panda hat pattern that I want to try.  So many ideas - so little time.

Have a great weekend everyone.  I hope you all stay safe from stormy weather.
