Hats Galore!

So, I've been kicking ass on the hats I've had to make. The first two are for a friend and former co-worker who's sister is having a baby. The 3rd is for my friend, and fellow crocheter who is due to have her baby next week. :D  I must say I love the ruffle brimmed beanie, but the yarn in picture 3 is absolutely delectable! This is all for now, I just had to share!! :D :D

Hats and Coasters and Dishcloths, Oh My!!

I'm currently working on eight (yes, that's right, EIGHT) hats. I'm also working on some fun flower coasters and dishcloths for a friends wedding. So I'm a busy beaver. Instead of actually working on one of the remaining seven hats, or oodles of coaster/dishcloths, I've been over at Tangled Happy's Blog for the past hour. She has got some AWESOME ideas. If only there were more (crafting) hours in the day....

Anywho, check out one of the hats I just completed.

Pretty cute, right? You can purchase the pattern here: RAKJ Patterns. Just like yarn, I'm addicted to patterns; especially hers. I guess it's better than being a crack addict, right? :)

More pictures of complete projects to follow in the next few days. I gotta savor these last 45 minutes and try to actually accomplish something other than looking at new projects on the interwebs.

Stitching it Up, Summer Style

Summer is finally here, and I now have a bit more craft time. Alex is almost 6 months old, and Scarlett will be three. My, how time flies!!

Currently, I have an order for dishcloths and coasters for a friends wedding, seven baby hats (all different styles from RAKJ Patterns ), as well as a hat for AJ (my tattoo guy!) Busy, busy, I will be! I just started my first baby hat tonight, since they are the only thing I currently have yarn for (amazing, considering the amount I have, right!?) The yarn for AJ's hat and the coasters should be in my hands this week. Good thing, because my second of four sessions is on 8/2, so I need to get his hat done pronto. And the wedding is in September, so I've only got two months to finish those. Not sure how many I truly need to make yet, but those will be fun too!

Words cant express how happy and grateful I am to actually have some projects to work on where I will be making some money. So far, everything has been for gifts, or my kids, other than the dishcloths I did for Relay For Life last year. It gives me hope that people really do appreciate handmade gifts.

Dont worry, I promise to post some pictures next time! For now, enjoy the deliciousness that is James Franco. <3
