Thanks so much, I'm really happy with them!  We had a craft night the other day at a friends house and we made a bunch of these. I got to teach! Super fun!

The Gwen is super fast!  Once you get the hang of the lace work you can knit one up in a day or two.  Very satisfying  Grin

I was in Urban Outfitters the other day and they had all these feather hair/hat clips.  They were charging like $25 bucks! I thought to myself "I could make those!" .....So I did!

I bought alligator clips from the craft store and feathers from the dollar store.  They are backed with some thick canvas remnants that I scavenged from the futon store down the road and some sweet vintage buttons I picked up from the Salvation Army (BAGS of buttons there! Sweet deals!)  And LOADS of hot glue lol.  It maybe cost me $15 for supplies and I've made a ton of these!

I am hat crazy right now!

This is a re-working of a vintage knitting pattern from a "Hats & Accesories by Beehive" pattern book I got off Ebay. the pattern book is undated so I'm not sure how dated it is but it's definately pre-60's  The original pattern was called "Peppermint Topping" and had this nasty stockinette stich piping on it.

I reworked the pattern to get rid of the piping added on i-cord ties, some back-stitched vines and leaves reworked from on old flower pattern. I knit the leaves seperately and sewed them on.  The bottom of the i-cords have 2 of the leaves sewn together so that they're the same on either side.

I'm so happy with this!

Knitting is how I quit smoking!  In the bottom of my closet is an 8 foot long, foot and a half wide garter stitch scarf lol!

Now if I could only convince MY fiance to impregnate ME!  Grin
