I have two hats for the grandbabies that I will finish.... I have a pet stocking I am making for a friend... I have hats I am finishing up for my daughter to give as gifts... and I have one more thing that I would LIKE to make for the grandgirls but it will be fun.. and I will either finish it or not... doesn't matter! It will be extra and will bring me joy to make so it's a good thing to do!
I finished sweaters for the grand girls for Christmas presents....
and matching hats :-) But the hats I already gave when it turned cold.... I didn't want my daughters to run out and buy hats that would fit!
Of course - this is a FREE pattern too! It looks cuter on a head than it does flat - the back is all like a curly ponytail and absolutely adorable! http://home.inreach.com/marthac/ponytailhat.html
Next week, I'll show you the other projects I finished!
Dishcloths for this week are:
#143 Blue Ridge Crochet Dishcloth - pictured below on the bottom left - this one drove me crazy.... I could definitely get the same effect with a lot less work. It turned out pretty but definitely not a repeat.
#144 Beginner's Luck Crochet Dishcloth - right beside it :-) I loved this one! easy and fun to do - clear instructions - the variegated yarn I used reminds me of those big candy lollipops!
#145 Yipes Stripes Crochet Dishcloth - above upper left - interesting technique.... took a while because it is all single crochet - but turned out pretty well and is nice and sturdy.
#146 Rose Granny Crochet Dishcloth - above - on the upper right - pretty, pretty! Sat in the sewing basket for a bit because I needed to sew the center motif on - but the square itself was fairly simple
The next 8 dishcloths are pictured below :
#147 Beach Stripes Crochet Dishcloth - loved the color combo on this one! It is a mixture of double crochet and single crochet that is fun to do.
#148 Forget me Not Crochet Dishcloth - below on the bottom right - turned out to be gorgeous! Easy to follow instructions - simple combinations of stitches that worked up quickly for a fantastic result
#150 Wild Rose Crochet Dishcloth pictured on the upper right - a great way to use up little scraps! It was fun to figure out and fairly quick to work up. The center flower will make a good scrubber... and it is pretty as well!
