I made my husband a beanie he's been buggin me for for weeks...fortunately it stays cold here for long winters! I used double stranded cotton yarn so it'll be super warm and oh so soft! He even wore it to bed! I think he likes it...
I had a co-worker make a couple of requests from me. All she said was use blue, purple, black...go! She said the same thing for the rainbow hat...I like having room to do whatever I want. So with the black, purple, and blue hat, I put popcorn stitches where the blue stripes were and made the pom poms all multi colored...then the rainbow hat...i just couldn't think of anything super fabulous...so I think it came out a little generic...but she still liked them, so the purpose was served...any comments welcome!
I came across a hat with a picture crocheted in it that I thought was sooo cool! The author of the thread gave a color chart, but I'm not quite sure how you use it or how I'm supposed to stitch this into the project! Do I start and stop with each color that the graph comes to?? I feel like such a newb, can someone help me? Thanks so much everyone!
I free handed these by candle light last night while my power was out (horrible ice storm) and came up with this. I may not have to have back to work until Sunday, which is cool because I may have a few more pictures coming! comments welcome!
I got a couple of requests for scarves with specs, so I free handed them and I think they turned out okay. The green and black striped one was a pain in the butt, so I've learned quite a bit about what I like about making scarves and what I don't. Comments and crits welcome!
My good friend and her son came over to see me last night, and I promised her I would make him a hat while they were there. I got done in enough time to watch a movie with them! I think Nik liked his new hat. He wouldn't take it off!
Okay, I had seen some really cool and original free hand projects and original drafted patterns, so I decided to give it a try, something simple. Just a simple tam/snood (not sure what the appropriate word would be for this).
Comments are welcome, along with constructive critisisms! Thanks for taking a look. If anyone wants the pattern, let me know, and I'll post it.
I found a random free pattern online for a newsboy cap and didn't adjust my gauge. So when it was completed, it was child size when I had intended it to be for an adult (myself!). So I gave it to my daughter. She likes it and wears it all the time.
Sorry for the bad photo's, but I took these with my old crummy camera. I got a nice one for an early Christmas present, so any future pictures I post will be much better.
