A friend asked me to make a hat for her sister and a matching baby hat for her sister's baby-to-be.  She wanted them to look like orange tabbies.  I didn't get a pic of the baby hat... will post that eventually.  For now, here is a picture of me modeling the mama hat. The baby hat is identical (well, smaller, but same stitch and border) with the addition of earflaps and ties that look like cat tails. Both are my own design (ie, improved)... but there are tons of cat hats out there in knit and crochet if you are looking for a good pattern.

The second item is a daisy scarf I made for a friend of mine that loves to wear warm oranges and yellows.  I used a daisy square pattern found here:  http://www.geocities.com/granniegroup/Delightful_Daisy.html?1002301595350 and just stitched them together and added a border.  I changed the daisy square pattern a little bit-- but that's mostly because I hate following directions. 

More info is on my blog... http://oneflewoverthecrochethook.blogspot.com/
thanks for looking!

I just love beanies with animal ears!

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

I love the scarf, it's retro and shabby chic.
The hat is really fun-my DD would love it!

I love the vintage look of the daisy scarf. It looks like a great thrift store find or a family heirloom. And the hat is just freakin' adorable!

Thanks everyone for the great compliments!  I appreciate it!

The yarn is Vanna's Tangerine Mist.  They didn't carry it at any of the local stores, so I ordered it online.  It is perfect for an orange tabby.

I washed the items with fabric softener to make them all nice and silky (Vanna's yarn isn't super-soft).

What a cute hat! I bet the mom and the baby will look adorable when they wear them. And the yarn you used seems to be perfect for that project.
