And for the latest project, and because it is Halloween a pumpkin hat is a must do! Sorry the color in the first picture is just bad! I made this from a pattern I had not tried before and just started casting on and knitting not really paying to much attention. The pattern was supposed to be a newborn size, not exactly newborn. But still such a cute pattern! Go here for the pattern:
This hat fit my almost 2 year old grand son, but it is so so cute! I will get a picture of him soon!

Just adding more pictures of projects
This is such a cute pattern, however I was in a hurry so I didn't do the cables. It is called the "The Cozy in Cables Sleep Sack'" For the pattern go here
My daughter said she enjoyed having this little sack, did not have this idea so much when my children were young. But then I was so much busier then. I really liked doing this project!

Another project: I just crocheted around a couple of flannel
blankets for my daughter and made some baby no scratch mitts, the pattern for the mitts i found on
Youtube. you can find the pattern here

I haven't been here for a long time, it just seems to get away fast. So a short note today, had to get a new phone! Really hate all the time it takes to set up, it is mostly done. Some recent projects you might like to see....
this is such a fun pattern and works up really fast
you can find the pattern here
 I hope you have a lot of fun with this hair
Scrunchies pattern, I used size 10 thread
and us size 7 (4.5mm) crochet hook. It works out
their is enough stitches on the hair elastic that it
will stretch out nicely. Happy Crocheting!

Pattern can be found here
This pattern is so..... cute, under the skirt is a diaper cover as
part of the skirt. And so many ideas for colors!

Sabrina's afghan, so much texture! I thought it would get boring, but has actually been really fun to crochet! She likes the bright colors and enjoys playing with the bobbles, not to mention will be nice and warm for winter!

you can find the pattern here

Good luck and enjoy!
I have added an edging to this afghan, i think it finishes it nicely, I so love the texture of this afghan!

Rag Rug, Love it!

Here is a picture of my frenchie on my rag rug! Easy to clean, I just shake, wash and dry. A great way to use old sheets or teach a child to crochet. You could make also make placemats.
tutorial here
I did take a stitch in the fringe, it randomly  comes off in the wash or dry. I just used machine sewing thread, takes a little time but well worth it.

This sweater is on you tube, and I think it turned out really well and fast too! Will make this again, loved it! 
pattern here:
This yarn is so pretty, however it just doesn't show in the picture as well.

Knit Pink Baby Dress

 I have been learning to knit in the round, and their has been a lot of little things to learn. I have unpicked a few times. This pink dress was originally a blessing dress pattern. I used red heart baby love yarn in pink and green and the lavender or purple is
Bernat baby coordinates. I am still thinking about doing the bottom rib over. I might just unpick and do it right, I just purled. I should have knit one row and purled the next, then it would have not rolled. I hope you like this, I am very please how it turned out. I used the pattern from the
Precious Heirloom 
and I just knit instead of the pattern and then an inch and a half before the bottom of the dress and sleeve I knit 4 yo knit 2 together all the way around for three rows. the middle row I shifted 2 stitches. Using the bigger yarn made it more for a 3-6 month old.

Unique baby Bootie pattern

I think I will try a different pattern that is simalar to these next time. But it was fun to try something new!
