What to muse about today?

Girls in #crochet #hatI’m not sure if anyone has noticed the girls hats…  the crocheted hats?  The hats I made?  I made them!!  I relearned how to crochet, and then how to actually do more than just single crochet a blanket, and maybe do a chevron pattern.

A few ladies at the office encouraged, well, pushed and prodded more like, to start up again once they learned that I wanted to make a few baby blankets for my expecting friends.  Over lunch times, they helped me, showed me step by step how to make a chain, turn, then single and double crochet stitches. You Tube has some lovely videos that helped as well – with left-handed crocheters!  I used the goal of making Teagan a scarf and hat set to learn.  Then Ashlin needed a hat for her ginormous head.

Teagan’s scarf:
Fringe for a little princess

I did a simple fringe on hers, as she is absolutely guaranteed to play with it.

And her hat:
#hat is done!  #crochet

She has pulled the ears a bit, and it’s getting out of shape.   I am glad I didn’t do too much embellishment on it, as I’m not sure it will last the season.  Oh, well, I can always make her another.

Ashlin’s hat:
Ash's #hat #crochet

I loved the curly tops on this pattern. I needed to adapt it a bit, embiggen it, as the only pattern I could find was for a newborn.  My Little Miss and her big head can fit in her sister’s hats. Also, all childrens (and some adult) hats need ears of some sort.

Ashlin wasn’t convinced at first:
No #crochet #hat!  Ash doesn't like it :(

But eventually she changed her mind, and won’t leave home or day care with out it!
Chillin' with my #hat and beep beep!

  3. The hats are lovely but it’s the gorgeous girlies that really sell them to me, so cute. Where did you get the pattern?

    Ok…you’ve been busy for sure. I love the hats. You did a stellar job and the ’embiggin’ one as well. I’m partial to crocheted items since my mom could crochet so well. I still have a ‘suit’ (jacket & skirt) she did for me 47 years ago and it looks like the day she finished it. As well as a bedspread, dolies, etc. Such a great memory. The girls will adore their scarves and hats and maybe be able to keep one for future memories of their wonderful mom. <3

      Very busy, indeed!

      I can’t imagine making a suit! That must be beautiful!

      I’m working on a blanket for Miss Tea now… it’s very relaxing.
