41  Re: 2012 Special Olympics USA Scarf Project Craftalong in Craftalongs by PixieVal on: January 15, 2012 08:35:36 AM
My daughter and I share a room, and after she went to bed last night I made a scarf. I was almost in absolute dark, caught up on my shows on the laptop, and crocheted by that light, lol, so I'm just happy it came out in the right size, the ends are a little wonky, I gotta figure out how to straighten those out now.

42  Butterfly Bow Child's Hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by PixieVal on: January 14, 2012 05:12:11 PM
I love this pattern, and when I need to make a hat for Lily in a hurry its usually my go to. Today I told her its time to pick out a new pattern, but she picked this hat again, so I made it again. It works up for me in under an hour, for a fast crocheter probably half that time.
Its super simple, and Lily has had a few hats in this pattern, but since she has grown so much this year, I did row 6 5x instead of 3x like the pattern calls for. Lily is 4, but about the size of a 6/7, so I was thinking her head might be bigger than the average 4 y/o as well. I probably could've gotten away with doing row 6 4x though.





the yarn is Hobby Lobby brand, I love their acrylic yarn. I find it to be one of the few really affordable acrylics that are also super soft.

You guys amaze me with your projects!
This is what I've been working on, my friend is getting out of the air force in September, and we made a trip to the thrift stores the other day where she was awing over some granny square blankets, I think it may have been a hint.. lol! Luckily I had just started this last week(happened to be her fav colors too, fate!!), and September gives me plenty of time to weave all the ends.
