That is gorgeous!

Thanks! Some of them have already been gifts, some of them are in my Etsy shop, and some of them are just sitting around, waiting for me to figure out what to do with them!

Excellent work!  I love that Bernat yarn, too.  That chunky look it gave the hats really appeals to me. Smiley  Super cute!
Thanks! I think it's my favorite yarn! Only problem is, you can't make more intricate patterns with it. Might have to actually work on a blanket next! Smiley

Love it! You did a wonderful job. I have seen patterns for the broomstick lace but haven't tried it yet - may have to give it a shot now!

So - here are more hats I've been making - I LOVE this yarn - it's called Caron cakes, and it is a variegated yarn that is self-striping. It is great to work with - not amazingly soft, but soft enough and it has a good amount of give to it so it's easy to get the tension correct.

Just going to post a bunch of pictures - hope you like them!

I have another Caron cake in shades of purple and violet - I am looking forward to using that one, too, but am undecided if I want to make these long hats or something else . . . If anyone has a suggestion for something fantastic (and relatively easy) to make from this yarn, please let me know! I'm up for trying something new!  Cheesy

And then here are some hats made with other yarns - this one is just made from cotton yarn

And this is a mix of the Bernat Baby Blanket yarn (the white) and another bulky yarn I got from Amazon - not great to the touch, but I like how it looks:

And finally - because 'tis the season - a double-tailed santa hat!  I found the inspiration for it on this board a while ago, and bought the pattern on Etsy. I just love this hat for the holidays! It's in my Etsy shop at the moment, but I may just claim it for myself in the near future, so I have a fun hat to wear!:

Thanks for looking! I have gotten into crocheting in a big way lately and have been neglecting my sewing . . . will need to get back to that in the near future!  Grin

Just posting a few things I've been working on lately that don't fall into an easy category!

Skull bags:

I got the idea for the skulls from this craftster post, which has the skull pattern as well as a link to the flower pattern:

Kitty can koozie!

This one I just winged. It was fun making it a calico pattern! Smiley

Thanks for looking!

I have been crocheting bunches of things, but have gotten lazy about posting, so here are several things I've recently made!

Cream hat and scarf - the flower on the hat is actually a pin, so it can come off and be placed elsewhere

Simple Camo hat:

Double-tailed hat in blue and white:

Long blue and white hat:

Long rainbow stocking cap:

Candy-cane hat with red brim and red scarf with candy-cane trim

Red hat with candy-cane trim and candy-cane scarf

All of these other than the camo hat were made from Bernat baby blanket yarn - it is SOOO soft and works up so quickly, I love working with it and love how it came out!

Thanks for looking! Let me know if you have any questions!

That's fabulous! Well done! One of these days I will make advent calendars! Smiley

That looks fantastic! How long does it keep? I think I read somewhere that meats need to be pressure-caned or they could still go bad. Or does the sugar and balsamic in the jam keep it from spoiling? Sounds delish!
