I haven't posted in a while, because it seems like I'm obsessively crocheting.  Focus seems to be my problem - I currently have 4 partially finished projects scattered around the house.  Here are a few of the things I've made in the past few weeks - trying to find things to make with this ton of novelty yarns I picked up at a yard sale.



The cowls each use one skein of Moda Dea Frivolous and a partial skein of regular wool - stitched together. They are stitched in the round using an N hook: *round of single crochet, round of triple crochet" repeat 2 more times, end with round of single crochet.  Attach a large button to the upper edge to adjust the fit - using the triple crochet as a button hole.



This is the kitty hat from Linda Kopp's Cool Crochet Hats in bulky alpaca-blend wool and the next is a girl's waffle-weave cap from the same book in a ribbon yarn - I made-up the button-on heart decoration (side view).



The last is the cowl that was in this month's Crochet Today in orange Homespun -- I added a drawstring with leaf-ends top and bottom - so you can push it back, adjust the strings and it becomes a slouchy hat.
