How I Got My Groove Back

It all started when I bought my grand-daughter a fleece jacket from Costco in Bellingham .  It was so cute but I knew it needed something else - a hat in pink or maybe striped, incorporating all the colours.  Then I thought why not make both.  And I love how they turned out!  They went up to Quesnel with my youngest daughter this weekend so I hope I get pics of my little Dalie modelling them soon.

 Made with Charisma white & black, doubled pink Vanna's Choice and Astro's tripled green yarn to get the proportions right. 

Made with Vanna's Choice and  4.5 mm hook.

Rag Doll 
Then I started looking at the doll I made Dalie in the summer & I thought 'she needs a hat' too and why not use up the left over pink yarn to do it?  She looks cute as a button although I wish I had embroidered a smile on her face.  Black shoes and a jacket are next, then off she goes in the mail for Christmas!

Boot Cuffs
 Next I saw these and many others on Pinterest lately and thought ' my girls would like those' so I'm making a prototype and darned if my youngest didn't see them in progress.  So they won't be a surprise 
but I least I know she likes them.  

 Vanna's Choice and 5mm hook.

Yummy Yarn
Oops I did it again -  some of my recent yarn purchases form Micheal's - awesome good sale plus 25% off.  I may have bought a few beading supplies too...oops

 Hat for Me
I made this hat two summers ago.  I love it.  
 I made a rose which I plan to sew onto a pin backing so I can wear or not wear it, depending on my mood.
It is kinda cute.
 Homespun yarn. 

Ear Warmers 
Without and with the detachable rose.

 Vanna's Choice again.
 I'm experimenting with a cute double rose idea from Pinterest.  

Slippers for Daughter Number One 
Found all over Pinterest.  Quick and easy in Charisma and size 6mm hook.  Nice and warm too.
