Hat for Friend

Here is a hat I made for a friend of my Dads that was visiting. The pattern used is The Popcorn Classic Hat from Free Vintage Crochet. I have used the pattern before in Hat #11 though in that one I didn't actually do the popcorn part but just used a poofy yarn. I had thought of doing the same thing but I've never done a popcorn stitch and wanted to try it out. The yarn used is Vanna's Choice by Lion Brand Yarns in White and Sapphire, though the popcorn part I used Denim Mist.

Hat for Auntie!

I've been taking a little break making hats for mom to make hats and things for other people. I'm still working on a couple more items then it'll be back to hats for mom again.

Here's a hat I made for my Aunt. My mother in law lives with her in California and since it was a pretty cold winter (for Cali) and they go camping often, I wanted to make it nice and warm. This hat was made with Lion Brand's Thick & Quick yarn and I used a HDC stitch throughout so it would have that pretty pattern that I like.

Hat for Mom-in-law

Here's a hat I did recently for my mother in law that lives in California. I used the Lion Brand Homespun yarn and surprised myself by just using a single crochet throughout the whole hat. I've used the yarn before and had problems, but I guess I'm getting the hang of this whole crochet thing. I made it a bit long so she can either turn it up or pull it down to cover her ears on those cold nights when she goes camping.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! Made a bunch of bunnies to give away to friends. White ones made with Vanna yarn and the colored bunnies made with Caron Eco yarn! Pattern from Lion's Brand yarn site - Amigurumi Bunny. I need to buy me some of those craft eyes, my bunnies turned out a little too oriental. Anyway, I love their cute little puffy pom pom tails.
