I don’t want to bore you with the same projects back to back,,, But,,, Yesterday after I dropped off the Owl Hat at Alpine Original,,, Debbie (My good friend and Owner) messaged me to let me know… It sold as soon as she put it up on the display… We had been talking about what else I should try to whip up for my display before Friday’s Artwalk,,, I had a few ideas of some easy, cute projects that would fill in the spaces… Maybe another pair of Skimmer Slippers,,, Some Patriotic Potholders,,,

.

Well,,,With the news of the Owl Hat selling right off the bat,,, The answer was easy… So with my stash of yarn and my favorite hook,,, I whipped up two more Owl Hats last night!  I couldn’t resist making a patriotic one!  If you like this hat,,, The pattern is available at Repeat Crafter Me.  While your are there… Check out all of her patterns!

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!
