new crochet hats...freestyling again

the past few months when taking a break from blankets i will crochet a hat, i dont really use patterns, i tend to look at pictures, teach myself the stitch then its all trial and error...i dont have enough heads in my house for all of these...

i made miss e's bow a few months back from looking at a picture and i cant remember where, may have been from ravelry... she pulls it off her head straight away so i was lucky to snap this pic...

little miss roman solider with a pompom, i love big pompoms on wee hats!


this one doesnt look right, shell stitch or something??


this one has found a home ;)


made this pattern by crocheting in front loop then in the back loop of next stitch

my first sweater...

my first efforts at a cardi, i sat infront of u-tube watching mikey from mikeyssmails
its the imagination sweater, on u-tube its called the simple sweater. got the idea from one of my fav new blogs Art Evy
this wee one is newborn size, i did want button holes but didnt quite know what to do...

here is miss e in her sweater for next winter, i closed it up so it wasnt a cardi but the collar is a bit open so i might add a button near the top.

not a great picture but shes a wriggler

isnt that owl adorable, i found it at a local linen/homewares botique
you pull the tail and it plays a lullaby....miss e smiles and laughs when she hears it.
