I went through a crochet frenzy recently and actually finished a few things. Still have a lot of WIPs, but here's what I finished so far:

Teal hat with butterfly applique. I think the hook was too small for the yarn, because it kind of... puckers? I dunno. It looks fine on though.

I love this hat! It was supposed to be toddler size but I think I made it too big. Just means I have to make another one, but it's a quick project.

Actually finished this a while ago, just didn't add the button closure or weave in ends until the other day.

Frilly pink sweater dress for my Shih-Tzu. I don't have her yet so no modelling.

Another one for the pup. This is smaller so it should fit her right away, for a little while at least. After that... hopefully someone else can use it. Smiley

That's all for now, but I have more that I'll hopefully finish soon. If you want links to the patterns for any of these, let me know! The two dog outfits were made from the same pattern modified by me.

You've been busy. I love the hats, they are cute.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Love the dress  Cheesy and your puppy will be very stylish in her ruffles!

Got this piece of shrinky dink ... had it for 25 years now.  It's moved to five states and one European country ... and I just know, someday ... SOMEDAY ... I WILL use it!

Thanks! I usually don't make many projects in a short amount of time. I'm always getting distracted by a new shiny project. So this is quite the achievement for me. :3

I love the shell pattern you used in the first hat. Can you share the instructions for it?

Looks great! I love the dress and the butterfly hat particularly. Regarding the puckering on the hat, I find that patterns that call for double crochet stitches in the round often have this problem. They can also get kind of wobbly/wavy - I think that comes from increasing the stitches too quickly, but I am just guessing. In any case, I use smaller hooks than suggested for the yarn all the time and that doesn't usually lead to puckering, just a tighter, stiffer fabric.
