Happy New Year Everyone!
It's a sunny and warm day here, perfect for crocheted hat modelling. I have been doing quite a bit of crocheting over this Christmas break... mostly little items. Three for a special new small someone and other items -- which contain cat nip.
Kitty gifts for the special felines on our list. All reports indicate they continue to be a hit. The free patterns can be found here: Ice Cream Cone, Egg, Ball, Traffic Safety Cone, Hamburger, Donut, Christmas Light Bulb, and Mousie. The beanie link can be found below.
You already know Louise, my neighbour friend -- that is she in the white socks on the left. Meet her new roommate, Maxwell. He gave his toys two paws up.
This is Rocky, one of my niece's cats, wearing his new beanie (free pattern here).
It's hard to tell if he is not impressed or is just trying to look cool. I had nothing to do with getting the beanie on Rocky. Use appropriate safety precautions when donning hats on your own cats.
I made myself a Wavy Gravy Scarf with Bernat Mosaic yarn which I love. I used the Gamut colourway which Macy and I picked up on a trip north to our favourite little yarn shop last week.
My friend's new little granddaughter has to have a sock monkey hat and although my Mom's childhood doll's noggin is a bit small, she was a good sport about the whole thing...
...even modelling a spring number in cotton with a vintage button. She looks a bit shocked that we didn't change her into a spring outfit. We had to roll up the brim so we could see her, but hopefully it will fit little Miss Maggie by spring.
Pattern here, and it's free!
Every little girl needs a 50's inspired turban to round out her collection. This free pattern can be found here.
If you recall, Dolly has prosthetic limbs which have yet to be surgically attached to her body. We did experience a little dropsy trouble in the snow, but everyone is back in the house now, warm and with all appendages.
I have a few more items that I will save for another day. I must get the hats in the mail before the babe has grown out of them... and we all know how darn fast babies grow.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing you all a wonderful 2013 full of all of the people and things that make you happy. Thanks for being part of my 2012!
PS: I don't know why my banjo-pickin' self is so small up at the top. Cannot for the life of me get it to post at the correct size. Wish down-sizing the real me was that easy!
