HatsIt 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.
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!
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 YarnOops 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.
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.
