The love supreme

31.5.13

Making time for some crochet...

The temperature has really dropped  these last few weeks...
the days are shorter...
our heater is going 24/7
and  I've been looking for a crafty outlet that doesn't require leaving my chair.

Then ...Alex asked if I could make Brayden a hat...
that was just the motivation I needed....

So....armed with my hooks and  HUGE stash of wool....(kindly gifted to me from my Grandma)...
I set to work...

I chose to make Brayden a puppy hat.... its from a wonderful pattern found here.
"Repeat crafter me" is such a generous site....with easy to follow patterns...tutorials and links.


I think he was pretty pleased....although it was a little on the snug side....oops



Then while my hooks were warm.....I made a Bunny hat for Brookey .

....and seeing as bunnies seem to be her favourite thing lately...she loved it.




Of course.....the orders are rolling in now...
I need to make...
a larger one for Brayden...
a new one for Bella...
and one for Brent...
No pressure of course.
