Baby Football Hat



I'm finally working on baby shower gifts. I know 6 people having babies this summer! I'm going to be so busy. I will probably be making hats for everyone, and since hats are so fast and easy, it shouldn't be a problem. My first hat is a baby football hat. I found the pattern in Itty-Bitty Hats by Susan B. Anderson. I love, love, love this book. I checked it out from the library but there are so many hats I want to make, I'm going to have to buy the book.

Fingerless Gloves


I have finally found a pattern for fingerless gloves that I really like. I had a really hard time reading the pattern, but once I figured it out, and rewrote it so I could understand it, it was really easy.

Faux Dotty Scarf


Since we've been trying to save money lately, I'm trying not to buy any yarn until I've used up most of the yarn in my stash (or until I start making a lot of money!). So this is one of the many projects I've been working on for the past month. I had five skeins, about 1/2 left of each. It's not a huge dent in my stash, but it's a good start. I loved making this scarf, but weaving in the ends was the worst part. I tried to weave as I went along, but it still took so much time. That is the only thing I don't like about crocheting or knitting. I love the way this scarf turned out and I can't wait until winter.
