Hat 205

Hat 205 is more scrap yarn!!  Luckily a lot of my scraps aren't just small amounts but really the perfect amount for a hat with one or two other yarns.  I really like this black and white striped hat and all the yarns are really really soft!

Hat 204

A friend of mine had given me the grey poofy yarn a while back.  I had made Hat 179 with it and still had some to spare.  It's such a soft yarn that I really wanted to use it on a hat instead of somewhere else.  I just paired it with some thick red yarn.

Hat 203

I had just a little of this pink scrap yarn but it's so pretty I wanted to use it all up!  So I just put a cute little stripe in the hat to show off some color!  The Grey is a Caron Simply Soft yarn!

Hat 202

This past year there have been a few women protests.  My cousins live around the DC area and asked if I could make them some pussy hats!  So I made them a bunch, then made some for the neighbors and in the end I had one left!  Along with this hat having political connotations, in general I find them to be really cute hats!  So thought I'd throw it in for fun.  It's a Caron Simply Soft yarn paired with some shiny colored yarn.  Pretty holey so it can be worn when it's a little hot out.

Hat 201!

Been working half the year on random things for friends and family along with throwing in a hat here and there.  The past month I've been really focusing on making my hats so I'm not churning them out in Dec.  This year will be the year of the scrap hat!  I've been going through a lot of my scrap yarn so there are a few hats that are done with different yarns from that pile.

Hat 201 was using my Turkish scrap yarn.  I always loved this yarn and my scraps really make a nice hat! Just a basic HDC beanie!

Mom's Birthday!

I went and dropped off my hats on Mom's birthday and took in some sushi for the nurses to enjoy for lunch.  It's always nice when I see the same nurses that helped my mom out and get big hugs from them.  It also looked like they had a bunch of hats that had been donated to them, so that's pretty awesome! Now it's time to finish all my Christmas crochet and then start on a new year of hats! This year I might try and work a bit more during the year so I don't have to rush the last couple months to make my number! :)

Hat 200!

My 200th Hat that I've made!!  
This one is some light tan yarn and I have a little machine that makes these cool ropes, so I made one to add onto the hat.

Hat 199

The purple yarn is a bit fuzzy and scratchy, so I crocheted it on the outside of the hat so you can't feel it!

Hat 198

When I was in Colorado I got some Purl Essence Boucle Yarn.  I made a couple scarves from it, but still had a little bit left over.  It's such a soft yarn that I didn't want to pair it with anything that would take away from that.  Plus the coloring makes it look pretty cool.

Hat 197

I don't remember where I got this colorful pretty yarn, but I definitely love how it turned out! I paired it with some thin baby soft yarn in a light peach color!
