I learned a new stitch! i think it is called the lattice stitch, and i am not even sure i am doing it right. But despite my possible ignorance, i made a new hat with it! i think it is my favorite, i made one for myself!
I have been in a "springy" mood lately and decided it was time to make a hat that reflected that. i chose this juicy red color and just winged the design. when i put it on it reminded me of a strawberry!you can't get much more spring like than that! soo....here are the pics!
So, i love everything about the ocean. I was looking at maps of the gulf stream, which looks like a big swirly rib on some of them, and i was inspired to make this hat. i call it the Gulf Stream hat, bc i am a geek.lol. hope you like it! comments and critiques appreciated!
we have finally had a good (3inches, lol) snow here and to celebrate i am wearing my snowflake hat! I made this one to wear to a Christmas party, but it works all winter. it is nice and warm, too, because i made it with 2 strands of worsted weight yarn. ok, here are the pics!
Ok, so I love this goldenrod yarn i picked up at hobby lobby and i thought it would look good with a bit of charcoal yarn i had lying around. I used my own pattern and thus was born the Acorn Hat! lol. seriously, it makes me look like an acorn head, but i love it. But don't take my word for it, here are the pics!
so i decided to try to experiment with my own hat pattern. I usually make hats with evenly spaced ribbing separated with dcs, so i decided to forgo the dcs and use increasing clusters. at least i think they are clusters, i could be wrong. to my suprise, the clusters didn't just increase the crown size, but also made the ribbing kinda wave like! anyway, i hope i can do it again, lol. the best part about this hat is that i made the heart button myself! oh, and excuse my goofy pics, i hate having to be a model, lol. on to the pics:
ok, this is probably one of my favorite hats that i have made! i love the colors and i love the yarn!! it is so soft! it is one of those hats that actually make me glad that i make "samples" for myself to model. that means i get to keep the sample! yay! ok, now for the pics!
this is the attitude i am talking about, lol.
the fat made-by-me button! yay!
you know you love the jauntiness! lol, is that a word?
I know what your are thinking, "when is this girl gonna stop bugging us with her silly hats? I mean how many more could she possibly make?!" . Well i'll tell you. LOTS! until someone comes over here and snatches my hook from my hands, i don't think i can stop. Maybe it is a disease! So without further a due, here is my newest hat!
once again, please ignore my goofiness! comments and questions welcome!
so i have been making hats like crazy lately! i really wanted a button tab on one, so i sort of improvised what i thought would work. It is ok, but i think i have a better way for next time. here are the pics! i know you are excited! lol.
ohh! I made the button too!! So what do you think?
