Ho! Ho! Ho!

Is he not thee cutest Santa you have ever seen? This is my precious nephew Tyler in the Santa hat that I made for him this last week.

I didn't have a pattern for the hat. I had a picture of how I wanted it to look in my head and went from there. I used double strands and a K hook and made an extra large pom for the end. I love the hat but love the one wearing it even more and today I get to go snuggle with him while my sister takes pictures of my kids.

Mommy and Me Shell Beanie

I am hoping to update this blog over the weekend.  We are pretty much snowed in due to a storm so I thought it would be a good time to finally get my projects from this Fall up on the blog.

My sister does photography and wanted a few little hats to use for babies.   I love to do hats because they work up so quickly and there are so many fun patterns to choose from.  I spent some time looking around the web and then purchased the pattern for this hat on Etsy.

It is the Mommy and Me Shell Beanie Hat.  I added the bow, which can be removed with a clip.  This hat worked up quickly and the pattern was very well written.  I will definitely make more of these.

Update & my super cute nephew!!

Wow, it's been a long time since I've updated anything here.  While I might have been quiet on the blogging front I have been busy crocheting and knitting.  Over the summer I mostly worked on quick knitted dishcloths.  I kept most of them for myself and used my favorite pattern found HERE.

My sister had her second child in August and asked me to make some cute hats and picture props for him.

I purchased the patterns for the bear hat and diaper cover and the pea pod at Etsy... I don't remember the shops at the moment but hopefully can find them and update with the links soon.

New Afghan

This is the afghan that I finished last month for a benefit/auction.   I used I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby.  I found the pattern from this tutorial.
