I've been working on my crochet during all my free time lately. And when I say all... I mean ALL. Which means I have some Christmas gifts that are still NOT wrapped. I have friends who still don't have Christmas gifts (I won't say who). And after decorating my tree... I stopped there. I NEED to finish decorating for Christmas soon.
I've been downloading a lot of crochet patterns last week, and so far, this must be the prettiest hat I've seen:
|Little Sister Hat from Petite Purls|
Pretty huh? And the pattern is available for free! I decided to try and make one for my daughter using cotton crochet thread to make it lightweight and useable in our climate.
I made the hat smaller so it won't cover her ears. And I was feeling a little lazy after finishing the hat so I didn't make a new flower for it. I simply used an old flower clip I made a while ago.
And what do you know...
She smiled! It's been a while since I was able to get her to smile and stay still long enough for me to click the camera.
Next project: More hats for some of my friends' kids, and baby booties for my friends who are having babies. I hope I finish everything before Christmas 0_o
