I got this really cute polka dot fleece at JoAnn's on sale the day after Thanksgiving. I made the holes with the skip-stitch rotary blade, then put the crocheted edge on it. This one is for the St. Ann Sewing Seams of Faith group. I got enough fleece to make another one for a Christmas gift.

This is the sweater I knitted for Gybsen for Christmas. I used Cotton Ease yarn and I got the pattern from here

I chose Cotton Ease yarn because I didn't want it to be too hot. I did have to use a smaller needle size, probably because of the yarn I was using. I added a bit to the sleeves. After I sewed the top seams together I knitted across the ends of the sleeves for 12 rows then I switched colors and put a ribbed cuff the same number of rows as the ribbed part on the bottom. Then sewed up the sides and arms and Voila!

These are 2 of the scarves I made for Knitz 4 Vetz. It is a project for a knit shop called The Knit With. It is in Philadelphia. They are collecting scarves for wounded soldiers in a hospital in PA. Many of the soldiers have skin grafts so they are requesting all natural fibers in the scarves. These are made with Cascade 220 Superwash. It is a lovely soft yarn to knit with and to touch. After using this yarn I am spoiled. It will be difficult to go back to other yarns that are not as soft.

Spiral Brim Hat

This is a knitted hat with a spiral brim. I got the pattern here:
I had a little problem with it. I cast on 80 stitches like the pattern says for the adult size. For the brim to make the spiral the pattern has to move over one stitch on each round. If you cast on 80 it will move over 2 stitches. You have to cast on a multiple of 6 plus or minus 1. So I did 79 stitches and it worked fine. If you want the spirals to go the other direction cast on 77 stitches. The only other problem I had is that 6 inches from the beginning to start decreasing is too short for an adult hat. I had to go 8 inches from the beginning before I started before I started to decrease. I used Red Heart Soft and size 8 needles.

Crochet Hooks

These are my crochet hooks. I have seven G hooks, and four H hooks. I steel hooks I have 4 size 10, and 4 size 5. As you can see I have all the rest of the sizes too. The really big ones and the tunisian hooks won't fit in this case.

The red fleur-de-lis on the sleeves and bottom of the alb are really nice with the red chasuble. There is also a stole, which he is wearing but you can't see, a Chalice Veil, and a Burse that all match.
