1  Floppy brimmed hat and jacket set...with flowers and death grip! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Amincale on: May 25, 2013 11:15:13 AM
So.  After many, many months of hanging around on Craftster, wondering where my creative spirit had gone, I moved to Norway and found crochet (yes, that's the short version!).  I've made more hats than I care to count!  And scarves.  And wrist warmers.  But nothing really very 'complicated', just trying out new stitches in the familiar slouch beanie-style.

Then!  My sister in law had a baby.  And for once I didn't have a panic about what to get the newest addition to our family for her navnefest (name-party)!  I'm terrible with gifts, always preferring something personal and unique, and crochet has given me the opportunity to make truly unique gifts.  So, without further ado, here's my first project posted to Craftster (hooray!) and my first crocheted baby items.

The sweetest little floppy-brimmed, beflowered hat I could find (from the wonderful Annastasia Cruz over at Ravelry - http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/floppy-brimmed-hat-2 )

And an improvised angel-wing jacket.  This actually started off as a pattern from somewhere deep in my black hole of a stash, but as I got more annoyed with the worn-out print (about three lines in) and more frustrated with frogging (after the fourth time) I gave in and just let the hook take over.

And finally, what the two pieces might look like if they were worn by something.  The only other things I could have used for a 'wearing' picture would have been one of our two cats (I value my eyes and like my skin) or my son's bear.  I was told very matter-of-factly that these things I've made are girl clothes, and bamse (bamse is Norwegian for teddy bear) is a boy, and in no circumstances was I allowed to put girl clothes on boy bamse.  So...I was left with this option:

Thanks for looking!
