Now on the the reviews…

The first  hat is from ELK Studio Handcrafted Crochet Designs… This is Kathy’s Country Appeal Hat… This is a Free Pattern!  As usual, this pattern is easy to read and can be made in one evening…  Kathy is quite the hat designer and as you know,,, I have made several of her wonderful patterns… This hat is one of my favorites!!  The texture she designed makes this very cozy and comfortable to wear!  It is worked from the bottom up to assure a great fit!!  So if you would like to make this Country Appeal Hat, Click Here

The Second Hat I made is the Surface Braid Hat by The Laughing Willow…  To make this hat, Click Here for the Free Pattern… I have wanted to make this style of hat for a while and just found this pattern recently!!  It is a great technique to get the fun effect on the right side of the hat… This technique makes the hat very stretchy and plush!!!  I actually ended up making two… I need to send off at least 4 hats to the charity… so now I am ready… I have these 3 hats and one from last weeks review.

Monday Makings… Life in the Crochet Lane!!!

I absolutely love to crochet!!!  If a day goes by without a hook in my hand… I feel sort of lost!  So many of us talk about all our projects we are working on and how many we have stashed away… I am the Queen of that!!   I thought I would take a moment to see if I could check some of those off my list this weekend…  And the big answer was NO… I just decided to add more to my list…. Love to Crochet!!!

So why start another Afghan while working on our CAL???  Yep that’s what I said to myself…   I  am donating  this Beautiful Bright Sunburst Granny Afghan to a Fundraiser… It has to be done in just a couple of weeks… So I had to get busy!!!

If you remember from last year… I made a Beautiful Cream and Scrap Sunburst Granny… I loved it so  much that I thought I would make another!!!  This pattern is from Priscillas Crochet… You can Click Here to get her Free Pattern!!
