Hats, hats, and more hats!

I've been a bit busy but hopefully I will be on here more regularly. I've been making hats! Here are some that I've made...

I'm making another Owl Hat, this one is for my niece. The previous one was for a friend that is expecting, and the monster hat was commissioned for a dear friend's son. I made Elena a Gator hat and scarf, featured above on her.

I made five bracelets yesterday for some of my 'little people' friends. On three of them I chained 25 and used the DC stitch, I sewed a button on to use to close the bracelet. On the other two I chained 30, used the TC stitch, and used a button as well. I used cotton yarn for mine, but really you could use any, an E-hook worked perfectly to make small close stitches. I crochet very tightly! So if your stitches are more loose you may want to go down a size
. They turned out so cute, the girls loved them! They're simple to make, you can use bright colors, and little ones will get much enjoyment out of them. :)

We're back!

I know it's been a while since Kaila or I wrote on here. Sorry for the absence. We've had a lot of things going on this summer and it's occupied our time. We're back now though. School's started for a lot of people, and things are winding down.
  I'm currently working on some projects. My number 1. project at the moment is finishing 4, yes I said 4,  Loop Baby Rattle Grab Toys.  They are so cute, and simple to make. I found a link to the pattern on one of our top favorite blogs She made one as well. I have the first two small loops finished, now I'm working on the big loop that the smaller loops will hang on. I'm going to insert only one bell and see how it sounds. I'm also busy crocheting a blanket, a bunny rabbit (for my niece for Christmas), and I have orders in to make some cotton washcloths. My times going to be occupied for a bit to say the least. I'll try to update with pictures and such along the way. Hope you all are having a nice start to Fall.
