Heres a new hat I recently made up for my sister Jerri. She asked me for a cotton hat for the summer and here it is. I used Debbie Bliss' cotton/cashmere yarn using my new 3G Studio size N hook. and it worked up great. I got the pattern from over at Dees site CrochetWithDee. Its her free pattern for chemo charity hat. It works up really great and its quite easy.

I loved working with this pattern because it is so easy. I used really fluffy warm yarn and it looked awesome. Heres a close up view of the stitches. Like I said it came out very light and frilly and very lacy. Its so soft I cant wait to see how Jerri will like it.
Heres a view of the hook I used. I bought it off of eBay. Its a size N hook made from many, many differant woods. The company that makes them also make bowls and grinders. They are absolutley beautiful. The company is called . G3 Studios . Try going over to Ebay and looking them up...they are really nice.

Heres a few of my latest squares I copied from a blogger over at the Granny-Along I joined for inspiration and thats just what I got. I did not copy exactly her square as she did hers. I just love the design of colors and the look of the yellow ribbon going through the squares. I finished the afghan but it was too small for my daughter. She wants the afghan to cover her at least she says. I made it the way I saw it on the other site. So now Im making more squares:) Ill post a pic when the afghan is completed.

Well I hope you all get a chnce to crochet a little more today than ever before. Have a great day!

Jerri wearing Dees hat

Here is my sister Jerri wearing Dees hat she made her. Isnt it pretty and my sister too! She loved the hat... she loved how soft it was. I decided to make a few more hats for her. And I made one for her little girl Jenny too. I know she will get a kick out of wearing a hat like moms.
Jerri has just started her chemo treatments and she has yet to loose her hair. But we all know that that is coming soon.
Luckly Jerri hasnt gotten very sick with the treatments Thank God for that. She is a little tired but all in all everything is going well.
Shes planning alittle trip with mom and sister Carri to go to Oklahoma for a week to see the old sites of our youth. Well I should get to bed its really late here in Vegas. Its been real windy tonight as well. Have a great night!

Heres a little pic of the dresss I made for a friends baby gift. I love making them they are so much fun. You should try it if you havent yet. This one didnt have a hat and booties so I made up the pattern for these items. I added the little flower to the dress to give it a little something to it. What do you think of it? The panties were another idea I got from another book but they turned out ok too. Dont you think?

Ive been playing around with the look of the site as you can see. I like this one better it has an earthy feel:) I found my cable to the camera and Im going to upload some pics of my recent crocheting adventures. I hope you come back later to take a look. I really think I should try and write out a pattern of two what do you think?
Ok have a great day! Its really nice out here in Vegas today. Ive got the back door open letting the fresh air in and my doggies love it.
