Spring Green…

.

Just to keep up on my pace of stocking up for the artwalk  the last Friday of June,,, I whipped up another cute hat using the Big Girl Bonnet pattern which I have made my own modifications too.  Tonight I will be working on a hat with a full brim… I make these hats in cotton for comfortable summer use!

.

I love projects that only take a couple of hours to complete! These hats can be done in one evening and the pattern is easy to follow…

Holiday Weekend Crochet…

.

This weekend was a little quieter than most… I had the house to myself for the majority of Saturday and Sunday… So, how would I spend it… Crocheting of course (and some gardening)!  I couldn’t wait to dig in to some new projects…

.

My crochet work will be  featured at Alpine Originals for June’s Artwalk the fourth Friday of June…  So, I am building up a large variety of crochet items for everyone to enjoy.  I’m hoping to show crochet as more than just Afghans and Doilies… Over the next month I will be showing it off here too!  I will also be making my “Annual” Flag Rugs and Flag Potholders… They are always popular and each year I make one Flag Rug to sell… This year I may make two being that I am featured right before The Fourth of July…  Stay tuned for pictures of these Rugs…

.

Here is what I whipped up this weekend…  Whew!

This cute hat is based on Karla Rae’s pattern for her Big Girl Bonnet on Ravelry. I made a few changes to the bill and used a smaller hook than recommended… Great pattern!

These Spiral Potholders are adapted from Barbara Langer’s Spiral Coaster/Potholder Pattern on Ravelry. I loosely followed her pattern and made several changes to get them just how I wanted them to turn out!  Another great Ravelry pattern!

This is a great pattern by Lily/Sugar’n Cream for Mobile Phone Covers… My phone would love to sit in one of these… I closely followed their pattern,,, with only a few small adjustments…

.

I just love Ravelry… If you haven’t found it yet, check it out… It is the best Crochet  Site for all levels of crocheters!

.

Well, 14 more items on their way to Alpine Originals… Wow, that was a lot of crocheting this weekend!

.

So here is to Ravelry, Artwalks and Crocheting!
