Hat 37

This one started out as a little beanie, but I had the frilly yarn that matched the blue I was using so well that I decided to make it a little more girly. I'm think I used a HDC stitch on it. Not positive, but it sure looks like it from the picture. Either way, cute little summer hat.

Hat 36

Hat 36! This one took me a while for no real reason other than I kept putting it down since I wasn't sure what color to put with the green. Finally settled on a brown and white yarn I had a little left of. The green is the Caron Simply Soft Eco yarn that I tend to use a lot of. I didn't use a lot of the brown and white since it wasn't as soft as the green yarn.

Happy Mother's Day!

My mom was a avid gardener. Growing up we just had our little lanai, but she filled it with all types of plants. Since she's been gone, I've tried my best to keep her plants going, which is hard considering I did not inherit her green thumb. I've lost a few plants, but in general, the lanai is still pretty full. Every time a new flower comes up, I think of her and how happy she was in her little Lanai garden. Here's some of her flowers that are in bloom today on Mother's Day.

Amaryllis , one of her favorites.

Desert Rose


Hat 35!

Here's hat 35 for my mom done with Lion's Brand Homespun Yarn in Painted Desert and Barley. I had done a Comfort Shawl for a friend in these colors and had a few extra scraps which I made into this slouch hat. It looks a bit holey since I used a DC around the bottom there, but I think it'll be okay since the yarn is pretty thick, and in regular light you can't really see the holes as well.
