New FO's!

My absence has not been in vain! I have been busily at work on new patterns and items. Now, I get to show you what I've been working on!

This is the crochet version of my knit collar/hood/shrug. Do you love it? I do! I love the texture and it holds so well. This pattern will soon be available as part of a grouping I'm working on so stay tuned!

These hats are specifically for the warm weather coming soon! When I showed my husband these hats the first thing he said was "are those going to be warm?". The answer is no! They are not meant to be warm, they are meant to be "cute"! I think they do their job pretty well, don't you? They're for those days when your hair is not responding due to the moisture in the air and you'd still like to salvage a "look".

The black one will be offered as a set in my Etsy shop later this week. The others are going to be on their own. I'm working on more items in an effort to "bust my stash". . . if you're a crocheter or knitter you know what I mean. I just don't have the space to keep hoarding yarn, so I want to process some out before re-purposing or purchasing more!

So far, I'm having a blast!

I wish I could wear the hats. I make them for myself all the time and end up giving them away because my hair is to thick I end up having a huge head. lol I love the shrug hope all of your work pays off.
