1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / My workspace on: September 08, 2008 11:49:07 AM
This is my oh so messy workspace.  I use my dining room table, and can only do that when my three daughters are at their dad's house for the weekend!  When they're here I have to stash everything in the pantry and only get out the very basics.  Even then I don't get any work done!   I have finished hats in big gift bags, hooks mixed in around pen/pencil drawers and unused yarn in giant zip lock bags.  Any suggestions on better storing/simplifying crochet tools/materials or minimizing your work space?

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Thicker yarn? on: September 08, 2008 08:42:48 AM
It seems like everyone is in love with super thick yarn lately!  Am I the only one that likes the thinner softer stuff?
For example: 
This is my three year old wearing a hat I made with a very thick yarn and a very big hook.  It seems like a lot of people LOVE this type of hat!  Just from friends/family seeing the pics of my daughter wearing it.
Here's some pics of the hats I like and usually make:

I guess I should get into using the thicker yarns, but I personally don't like wearing them as much.   What do you think?  Which would you prefer to wear or wear on your child?
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / It's Not HAT WEATHER?!?!! on: January 09, 2007 11:05:48 AM
The other day my mom said it's not hat weather this year...too mild, she says!

I say yeah right!  It's always hat weather!  So I perservere through this dry spell and I made new hats!  What do you think?

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Another Boyfriend Hat on: January 09, 2007 10:58:44 AM
Seems like alot of yous guys are always making things for the men in your lives, so I was inspired...
I made my boyfriend a hat recently, he has super curly unruly dark hair, which I love, but he prefers to wear a hat.  So Voila! a hat for my Mister:
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Britney inspires? HMMM???? on: November 29, 2006 06:26:01 AM

Here's Britney in this hat, which I thought was cute, but also I thought the brim was overkill.  I don't usually search for pics of poor Miss Spears online, but I saw this and liked the pom pom thing.  I saw a commercial for Real World Road Rules challenge too and one of the girls was wearing a really similiar style. 
So while I was nursing wee Max for her nap I attempted to make something even cuter.

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / BABY it's cold outside on: October 19, 2006 09:30:07 AM
Hats...yes I am obsessed.  These are some new hats I came up with, what do you think?  Worth making more like this, or should I move on? Smiley

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / New hat designs on: September 26, 2006 03:08:39 PM
I made a couple new hats this week so far.  It was fun taking pics out in the crisp fall weather.  Sun's still too hot for a warm hat though!  I can't wait for the cold!  Sorry all  you summer lovers, I'm a bundler.

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Birthday present for my neice! on: September 19, 2006 08:54:06 AM
I made this set for my niece's 1st birthday this week.  I've been using my daughter's giant bear as my new model alot lately.  I think he's hotter than me!  Wink

I hope she likes it!  
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / New here, I make hats! on: August 12, 2006 06:46:32 AM
Hi everyone!  Brand spanking new to craftster.  Neat site!  I started crocheting about two years ago after about 20 years of failed attempts!    I've been making hats for my friends local 'hippy' shop for a while.  Thought I'd share some pics.  I never can get anyone to model for me, and I'm a stay at home mom with three little girls, so I bit the bullet and made some dumb faces.

I'd love any feedback!  If you see loose yarn, it's not quite finished.
