First Successful Hat!

I just finished my first successful hat! Jesse is sleeping, but I hope he likes it. I used the pattern from the SnB Happy Hooker – Crochet book – for the “boy beanie”. It’s grey with green stripes. I’m going to try it on him once he wakes up and will take photos then! Then, ...

Princess Leia modeling yarn items

Princess Leia “barbie” is modeling a crocheted hat, crocheted skirt, crocheted capelet and a crocheted purse. She is also wearing a knitted shawl (that’s like Bailey’s).
