All about hats

Standard

It’s craft fair season!

Business is booming here at the ‘Toad. Christmas gift orders have arrived in spades, and invites to participate in local booths and holiday bazaars.

Best of all, two nearby gift shops have asked for my work!

As I said, a busy season.

My fingers are churning out as quickly as they can around my already full family schedule. ❤ Best to keep things in order of importance, always.

Sweet, simple hats fit the bill.

Starting with the basic pattern here:

I’ve designed a half dozen cute new hats to fill our local shelves and keep precious small heads warm this winter.

A delicious cluster-stitch variety and v-stitch with removable button flower

Stripey boys hats, a spiral-space design and a pretty puff stitch version

A darling double-crochet with big-button panache and a fpdc, bpdc finish.

And a little something seasonal to finish it off! Pattern coming soon…

Phew, it’s been a busy few weeks. And warm! Cooler temperatures have finally returned and I look forward to my upcoming couch-and-yarn time.

I think this is my favorite. ❤ Until I design the next one. 🙂

Happy hooking! Until we meet again!

And a happy Tuesday to you!

It’s always so wonderful when our projects are appreciated, isn’t it? When they are used, delight the recepient and become well-loved, even to being worn through.

It’s the best.

A while back, I made a little diaper set for a handsome young chap. Something with cars, she said. 

It wasn’t much to go on! So I designed it to please myself and hoped for the best.

The family was thrilled. Unbeknownst to me, I had matched their nursey decor EXACTLY. 

Hurrah!

So just before Christmas, I got a sweet second request. Could I make a blanket to match???
But of course. 🙂

Now comes the fun part! Choosing a design. 

Here’s a composite of my inspirational photos so far…

I shall keep you updated!

Here is the pattern I used for the diaper set:

May you stay warm and dry today.

Happy hooking!
