A little premie hat and a shawl in progress

Here's a little premie hat I made .... 

 I also started a CAL (Crochet A Long) and am using up some Caron Simply Soft yarn stash I have.  I got this far, and then I wasn't sure what color to add next as I was running low on charcoal gray ...

So I polled others that were doing the same CAL and one person suggested the pink.. and I thought, what the hay .. green and pink go well together ...

I'm liking how it's turning out ..should be done in a few days.

I really like this cloth pattern - it uses knitting and crochet .. and comes out so pretty.

Recent Crochet Items

I purchased some really cheap yarn and I really don't like it, but I did finish it up in two projects.

The first is this premie hat.  I'm hoping that it will soften up after it gets washed.  
If it doesn't .. then ... 

I will just have to use it to hold hot cocoa mix pouches :) 

I also made this scarf.  The pattern starts at one end and finishes at the end.  Problem was that the beginning didn't look as good as the finish.

So I added a little to the 'beginning' and now the two ends look a lot a like.

Here's a shot of Peaches trying the hat on ;)

Here's her trying to try the scarf while I was laying it out to photograph it ...

Here's the scarf all laid out.

new Cricut and Nesting Dolls Card

So I got a new cricut .. it's able to write and cut at the same time and it cuts more accurately than the previous model.

Here's a card that I made two nights ago . . . .

This was a pre-prepared project. I just selected the project and it lined up the mats and away I went!

That's pretty kewl don't you think? :)

Photos Photos Photos :)

I know I don't talk much, but this is the before (july) and after for my Detention for HPKCHC .. which means it had to of been started before July, and I am "WIP the 1st" so it was finished on July 1st, today.

It is a motif and will later be placed in a project, but for now it is done.

Also - I won a prize for participation in my Gryffindor Pride (Kneazles) .. and received that recently .. I feel so blessed.

Such gorgeous yarns, and such very nice people to have one donate this prize to me.

A finished Cowl - a solved Mystery

This is a finished cowl as part of the HPKCHC Headmistress Challenge for the Spring 2016 term.  We were given 3 clues, 1 at a time but we didn't know what it would look like until we had completed the clues.  I think this turned out pretty well, don't you?  I like it.
