Manly Slip-Stitch Hat

Found this pattern in Lion Brand Yarn Just Hats book. I used Fisherman's Wool in two different colors and I think it really turned out nice. My oldest son loves it and gets lots of compliments from his friends.  I think there may be more in the making - oh darn.  :0)  I guess I'll just have to make more...

Christmas Set

I'm so happy to have finished this cute Christmas Set from Susan B. Anderson's new book, Itty Bitty Toys.  I had a lot of fun knitting these Christmas goodies.  I left my bag unstuffed though so that I can use it on St. Nick's Day and for stuffing with candy canes.

I know it's January 2nd, brand new year, BUT I finished this and feel great it is done for next Christmas.  Another project that didn't make it to WIP-ville!

Happy New Year

I'm in Love with Birdies...and my family is too!

Crocheting has been such a fun adventure lately!  I just wish I had more time.  I crocheted this adorable robin birdie for my grandmother for Christmas.  Her favorite bird is the robin and this is my crafty version for her to admire.  My youngest son fell in love with him too, so needless to say there's another robin in the making.  I guess it's not a hard request to fill either.  I love crocheting these birdies.
This little cutie was made out of an abandoned WIP crocheted bag bottom I had started.  So glad I found the abandoned bag because I am enjoying this birdie very much.  He is hanging from a Christmas wreath above the mantel right now, looking very festive.  For the pattern you just have to check out Attic24's blog.
