Cuteness Overload

Remember those baby hats I crocheted a while ago?  Well here are some pictures of the recipient, baby Madison.  All of the pictures were taken by her mom, my friend Leah.  Enjoy the cuteness.

First, the Cheri hat:

And the owl hat:

Thanks for sharing the pictures, Leah.  She really is adorable.

Lacy Cowl Complete (Late FO Friday)

Pattern:  Lacy Mohair Cowl
Needles:  US size 15
This was made as a Christmas gift for my hair stylist.

I am a little lot embarrassed that I typed my blog address incorrectly on the tag.  It should have been dashes, not underscores.  Ooops.  I will never make that mistake again.

Check out other FO's at Tami's Amis.

WIP Wednesday: Groovyghan and a Fuzzy Lacy Cowl

Check out Tami's Amis for more great WIPs.

I have started a Groovyghan. I have been wanting to crochet an afghan for a while now, and when my husband saw the Groovyghan on Ravelry, the decision was made. I am using stash yarns and an H hook.

On Monday, I decided to cast on a cowl to give to my hair stylist as a Christmas gift. I searched Ravelry and found a simple but pretty lacy cowl pattern. I hope she likes it.

Sorry for the crappy pictures. I used my Ipad, and the colors are not accurate. The cowl is a very pretty green color. I will post better pictures next time.

WIP Wednesday: Mitts and a Moose

I have two works in progress(wips) this week.  I have been making myself some fingerless mitts.  I had a great pair that I knit a few years ago, but I cannot find them anywhere, which is actually not a surprise since all my winter accessories are in a pile in a closet.  I really need to get them organized.

Pattern:  V Stitch Fingerless Gloves
Hook:  G
I made a mistake reading the pattern for row 6 and didn't notice until I had almost completed the first mitt.  I decided to just continue with my mistake instead of starting over :)  I also changed the ribbed cuff to a plain sc cuff.
So far this pattern is going well.  The second mitt is feeling a little smaller than the first one, though.

My second wip is for a group challenge on Ravelry.  The challenge is over, but I am still planning to complete my moose head.

Pattern:  Bucky, the Stuffed Moose
Needle: size 4
I love this pattern so far.  I decided to knit in a solid color instead of the multicolored patches.

It's a difficult project to photograph, but I think you can see how the shaping is turning out.  I am also in the planning stages of a groovyghan and thinking about knitting some gloves with fingers as a Christmas gift.
