My own blog page is not letting me post comments :( Sorry for those of you that have asked questions and I have not replied.  The Crochet Baby hat will fit a newborn and possibly 0-3 month babies.  The Toddler hat will fit 9-12months depending on the childs head size.  If you dont know how to do the magic ring a ch4 slst will work the same.  Sorry for not getting back to you all sooner.  Thanks!!

Bunny Sachets in Hidding!!

So, today I hatched a grand idea to make up a whole bunch of my lil bunny sachets, attatch my business cards on them and hide them around the town my family and I now live in!  I havent actually gotten all of that achieved but I am on my way!  My sweet daughter placed my "whoops" in many places in our yard and had me take pictures of it for ideas! She is so cute and 4 so you could only imagine!!
This lil bunny is filled with only flax seed as it was my "try-out".  I plan to fill some with lavender, roses and other smell goods!!  Not sure what all I could do but the choices are clearly endless!!  I will have some of these cute little guys up for sale on my studio here soon, where you could purchase two different sizes and an endless list of colors (of your choice, of course!!)

Toddler Beanie

Found some Caron Simply Soft yarn and fell in love with how soft it was!  I even put it up to my cheek just like my kids do with their favorite baby blankies!!  I made this hat to fit a child the size of my son, he is 15 months and barely let me put the hat on him! haha but we managed for a few seconds anyway.  All it took was 3 colors of Caron Simply Soft yarn, a G-hook, and a little bit of spare time!
Abbreviations: hdc- half double crochet   sts- stitches   slst- slip stitch  ch- chain

Row 1: 11 hdc in a magic ring, join
Row 2: ch1, 2 hdc in each stitch around, join 
Row 3: ch1, 2 hdc in first st, 1 hdc in the next, around, join
Row 4: ch1, 2 hdc in first st, 1 hdc in the next 2, around, join
Row 5: ch1, 2 hdc in first st, 1 hdc in the next 3, around, join
Row 6: ch1, 2 hdc in first st, 1 hdc in the next 4, around, join
Row 7-19: ch1, 1 hdc in each around, join
I changed colors rows 13-17 (2,1,2)
Finish off and weave in ends

This hat would be very easy to make smaller or larger, all you have to do is decrease or increase the number of 'increase' rows in the beginning of the hat.  Enjoy!!! Until next time, Happy Hooking!!

Fingerless Gloves

I whipped these up for myself after making soo many for other I thought of myself for once! haha!  They didnt take too long, I absolutly love them!  So here is the pattern and all that!
Abbrevs: slst- slip stitch  ch- chain  sc- single crochet  hdc- half double crochet  dc- double crochet
Note: I worked these by joining each row with a slst and did not turn after each row which can be done as well.  the ch 2 at the beginning of each dc row does not count as a dc!

Cuff:  ch 9
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each across (8sc) ch1, turn
Row 2: sc in back loops only from here on out ch1, turn
Row 3-24: repeat row 2
slst ends together then sc around the 'top' of the cuff to make look alittle better! join (24sc)
Row 1-3: ch 1, sc in each around, join
Row 4: ch 2, dc in each around, join
Row 5-6: ch 1, sc in each around, join
Row 7: ch 2, dc in same st and in each around, 2dc in the last st (26dc)
Row 8-9: ch 1, hdc in each around 
Row 10: ch 2, dc in first 5, ch 3, skip 3 sts, dc in next 18 for left hand, dc in first 18, ch 3, skip 3 sts, dc in next 5 for right hand.
Row 11-12: hdc in each around including ch 3 space
Finish off and weave in ends.

There it is! My favorite, comfortable fingerless glove pattern that I made up!  I used some soft, worsted weight yarn and a H hook.  Hope you enjoy the pattern! Until next time, Happy Hooking!!!

Crochet Washcloth- Weave

Above is the almost finished-my-hands-hurt-so-I'm-blogging about it washcloth/dishcloth!  I used one ball of Lily brand sugar n cream in purple along with a size G-hook.  Its quite simple to do all it takes is the materials listed above and some tylenol for the ache in your hands if your hands start to hurt! Haha!  
Abbreviations: Slst-slip stitch  hdc-half double crochet  ch-chain   st-stitch
The pattern:

Ch 46
Row 1: Slst in second ch from hook and in the next 4chs.  *hdc in the next 5chs, slst in the next 5chs* repeat across (45sts)
*Note: work in the backloops only from here on out*
Row 2: Ch1, turn, slst in the first 5 slsts, *hdc in the 5 hdcs from the previous row, slst in the next 5 slsts from the previous row* repeat across
Row 3&4: Ch2, turn, hdc in the first 5sts, *slst in the next 5 sts, hdc in the next 5 sts* repeat across
Row 5: Ch1, turn, slst in the first 5 hdc, *hdc in the next 5 slsts, slst in the next 5 hdc* repeat across
Repeat rows 2-5 until washcloth measures 10" or your ball of yarn runs out!! End and weave in ends unless you desire an edging.  Until next time, Happy Hooking!!!

Hats! Hats! and more Hats!

In December of last year, my husband, Jarrod, and I cut out, sewed and tied 403 fleece childrens stocking hats as a Christmas charity event help in my hometown.  We got notice of the event on December 3rd and had to have them finished and delivered by December 18th.  It was wonderful seeing the smiling faces of each child that recieved a hat that day.  Now every time I say I need to sew some more hats Jarrod and my daughter, Bailey, scream and run out of the room.  They are both too funny!  Well thats all for now!
