This weekend I started several new projects… Trying to get ready for Fall and Christmas both in my Etsy Shop and at Alpine Originals…  I am still finalizing my” Sadie” Pattern and have almost got it together for my tester…  I worked on another cute pair of children’s Crocodile Boots and started a pair of really cute boot cuffs from Elk Studio Hancrafted Crochet Designs Free Patterns…  All of these took some concentration and pattern reading…  So they are all work in progress pieces, along with a couple Afghans I have on the hook…

.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the day at an out-of-town Volleyball Tournament with my beautiful daughter that is starting her senior year tomorrow!!!…

Well, I can’t really concentrate on pattern reading in the bleachers of some exciting games… Hmmm… So what to take… Ok, I decided to make up some Infinity Cowls… Last week on my Facebook Free Pattern segment,,, I featured a really cute cowl from Ravelry, Lots of you really like this pattern that I featured… So I made one up, inspired by some of her design,,, And of course… I had to add some of my own touches!  A ruffled edge and my own flower that I use on most of my designs… It was made with a great teal color from Caron Simply Soft…Love it!

Infinity Cowl Scarf In Teal…

.

By the time we got home and got reorganized,,, I sat down for a little more crochet… Since I was on a roll and several people asked for the pattern I used last week in my Infinity Cowl with Sequins,,, I thought I should continue to work on that pattern too!  So because I had just picked up some more yarn,,, I pulled out some great chunky yarn in Pink that I just bought by Deborah Norville…  I whipped up another one of my own designs and decided it needed to have one of my flowers too!  This pattern is more a cowl than a scarf… I love the way this one turned out too!!!

Once again when I sat down to crochet last night, I pondered what to work on… I have several works in progress… Lots of things on the back burner and I really felt like whipping something quick up… again!

.

I loved the hat I made the day before! Kathy Lashley’s Hounds Tooth Hat from her Free Pattern Page at Elk Studio Handcrafted Crochet designs… I made some adjustments to make it feminine… I got a great response to the additions of the brim and flower…  But last night I really just wanted to make her pattern and follow it to see what I thought of just the beanie… Masculine or Feminine would only be determined by the colors…

.

.

I decided to go with my daughters school colors for the first hat of the night.. “Blue and Gold”… I loved the way it turned out!!!
