So....
*hears crickets*
Yeah, this is my first project post here, despite having been busily working away on my crafts for quite some time.  *sigh* 
I've been making hats lately, and sold 2 just before the holidays.  Here are 4 of them:



This is my own pattern, and the band in interchangeable.  Cheesy



This is actually the same pattern with a smaller hook and no brim.  This was made almost exclusively in the ER while waiting for my roommate to be checked out and discharged.


[imghttp://paradoxpark.com/images/crafts/hat3-2.jpg[/img]http://This is from a vintage pattern I found on the 'net somewhere.  I should be able to dredge it up if someone wants/needs it.  The flower on here was an orchid pattern also from the internet, and also easily located in my links if anyone wants/needs it.




This is an edit of a yarncat pattern, with a passion flower pattern from online.  As with the last pattern, I am willing to figure out the links if needed/wanted.




This is a ravelry pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/crochet-hook-caddy.  I joined a make from your queue group and am having a great time!



These are also a ravelry pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hexagon-boot-slippers.  I made these, also from my queue.  I like how they turned out, except for the oddness of the sole.  Has anyone else made these, I'd love some advice about getting the sole to fit right.  My over-foot part was not as long as the sole, when made completely according to the pattern.  Is it maybe my guage/tension?

Anyway, thoughts, C/C and all that are more than welcome!!  Oh, and my lovely 'model' is Joeliene, aka "The Head of Doom" LOL!!

I love the hats!!  And the fact that hats are coming back or at least around here.  Although it could be that it is so dang cold right now.  Was 3 degrees when I walked in the door at work.

I love that blue hat to pieces. I am kinda newb so it's probably a long ways past my skill level, but I wouldn't mind having a link to the place where you found, in case some day I can actually make something cool ha!

Great hats, I love the variety of color. Smiley

In all honesty, it's not that hard.  LOL!  I probably shouldn't say that, but it's entirely sc, and I added some short row shaping to the brim.  Yikes!  The site that I got it from has closed down.  Snarks.  Give me a few days, I'll see if I can write one up for you.  Wink
