Another scarf

I made this scarf about two years ago. A friend had gotten the pattern from a magazine but it was only the chart and no written instructions. I followed the chart and wrote out the instructions for her. The first one I gave away as a gift. This is the second one.

Flower Hats

These flower hats are so sweet! One is for an adult and the other would fit a child. The white and pink hat is made with Simply Soft. The flowers on the other hat is just leftover pieces from my stash. I don't remember where I got the pattern from.

Into the Wild Scarf

This is a crocheted scarf. The pattern is from the fall 2010 issue of Crochet! magazine. Nice scarf for a man. It would look good in any colors. I might do a red and blue Special Olympics scarf with this pattern. I just have to check the width and length to make sure it fits the requirements.

Pumpkin Hat

Pumpkin hat for my grandbaby who is due on October 26. My daughter is scheduled to have a C-section on that day. The orange yarn is Red Heart Soft and the green is Impeccable from Michaels.

Cupcake hat

This is a knitted cupcake hat I made last year. All the patterns I found were for infants or toddlers. I adapted the pattern to fit a teenager/adult. I sew bugle beads on by hand for the sprinkles.

Free pattern for scarf

This is a scarf pattern I designed to use some Lion Brand Microspun yarn I had in my stash. I'm not sure how many skeins I used since it was leftover bits that I used up first. I'm pretty sure I used a size H hook.


Ch 25.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. (24)

Row 2 – 3: Ch 1, turn, Sc in each st across. (24)

Row 4: Ch 3, turn, *Skip next st and trc in next st, trc in skipped st, repeat from * across to the last st, dc in last st.

Row 5 – 7: Repeat row 2.

Row 8: Repeat row 4.

Repeat rows 5 through 8 for desired length ending with last sc row.

Fasten off and weave in ends. Add fringe.

Hexagon Bag

It took me less than a week but I finished it. All I have to do now is put in a lining. It is made with Sugar "n Cream 100% cotton. I saw it first here
I really liked it. Had to have one!

Stripey scarf

This is a knitted scarf. Every stripe is done with a different yarn. The colors are wool, cotton, bamboo, viscose, acrylic. Some of them I'm not sure or I just don't remember. It wasn't difficult, just had a lot of ends to weave in.

Baby Booties

I wish the picture wasn't so dark but aren't they cute! Tiny booties waiting for tiny feet. There is elastic around the ankles so you don't have to worry about ribbons and they won't fall off.

Receiving blankets

I bought the flannel and hemmed the edges. Then I put crocheted edgings on with size 10 thread. My camera is not that great so the picture could be better. Maybe I'll try for a close up picture.

A new purse

I love purses! I saw this purse on this website . I totally fell in love with it. I did it with worsted weight yarn since I don't like really big purses. I made this off-white one for myself along with a blue one. I made a tan one for my mom. Also an off-white one that my cousin-in-law bought from me and a black one that someone she works with bought from me. It looks good in every color I've tried. I put a lining with pockets and a magnetic snap to close it.

Christening Bonnet and Booties

It's been a little over 3 years since I posted anything. I thought it was about time I started up again. Here is something I made. I have a cousin who had a baby boy a little over 2 years ago. They wanted me to make the Christening bonnet and booties but I could not find a pattern I liked for a little boy so I designed one. After that I figures I might as well design one for a girl. I did not design the booties. They are from book. I have since sold a couple of sets of them and had the patterns for the bonnets published in the Mary Maxim catalog.
