What’s been on my hook #crochet

My little fingers haven’t ever been this busy in the time-span of about 2 weeks! I’ve crocheted quite a bit and gotten quite a few orders, even if 2 of those orders have been for swaps, meaning they chose what they wanted me to make & we traded. They sent me something in return, either that they made or from a direct sales company that they sell for. 

The first one I did, I have actually posted about it, now that I think about it. Go check out my post titled “A Little Monkey Business” for what I made in return for some hand stamped handmade keychains! That cute little sock monkey stuffed toy has gotten me quite a bit of interactions, but that’s still the only one that has been ordered so far!

Secondly, I had a lady who wanted some hats, and she sells Lula Roe. I will make a post on this in the near future, so keep on the lookout for that! All I’m going to say right now is that I picked out a Randy shirt and she found the the perfect pair of legging that matched it 100% and they are super comfortable! She told me the patterns she wanted after I sent her some pictures, and then I sent her pictures of the colors of yarn I had in stock. Here are her finished hats!

These hats are called “Wheat Fields Slouchy Beanie” and I got the [free] pattern from The Lavender Chair! Since finding this pattern via pinterest, I have since subscribed to Dorianna’s new posts because I want to see all her new patterns. These only took 1/2 a skein of yarn each, so that’s not too terrible either!

This yarn is from Hobby Lobby and is I Love This Yarn brand. It is called Autumn Sunset and I am heartbroken I can't find it anymore!

This hat is called the Marion Slouch Hat and it is a [free] pattern from Little Monkey’s Crochet, who I have also started getting email updates from. This took almost an entire skein of I Love This Yarn Autumn Sunset (when I say almost an entire skein, I mean I had MAYBE 5 inches left over after weaving in my ends! I started getting scared towards the end!)  I can’t find this varigated yarn at any of the surrounding Hobby Lobby’s nor on their website, so I am wondering if it has since been discontinued since I found it in their clearance aisle back in January of this year!?! I’m super sad, because I LOVE how it worked up & I think it would look great for a color pooling project, if I could ever get those figured out!

Somehow I came in contact with a professional photographer in Texas, and she said she would like to have some Halloween, Fall, Thanksgiving and Christmas themed photo props for her business for newborns! We chatted for quite a bit and we hit up pinterest together and we found some together that she really liked.

Also with these, I couldn’t find a pattern for the hats so I just did my own thing! I think they turned out super duper uber cute! By posting these pictures on my facebook, I did end up with another order for a Pumpkin set and a request from Hubby’s niece who’s due in March for a Jack Skellington one!

I don’t know if you guys know much about yarn, but Caron has come out with a new yarn called “Caron Cakes” and I saw the perfect pattern to use one for, so Rosalie and I went out to Michael’s (because the yarn is exclusive to Michael’s) and I let her pick out which skein she wanted. She chose pink surprise surprise and here’s the item I made for her with her chosen Caron Cake!

The yarn is called Cherry Chip. <3 it so much!

It's appropriately named Ring Around the Rosie Vest.

This is another pattern from The Lavender Chair and while it was easy enough to understand, I do wish it was a little easier. There was ONE or TWO parts where I had to go to a crochet group on facebook for help!

And last but not least, my last project for the week.

Again, I couldn’t find a pattern for this that I liked, and that was for a newborn, so I made my own. I believe I’ll write it down and list it on Ravelry and possibly Etsy. Newborn Arkansas Razorback’s Hat and Diaper Cover complete with curly pig tail!  I have been a Razorback’s fan for the LONGEST time, well, I guess since I first started dating my ex boyfriend Anthony in high school. But I think this turned out super cute!!!

I do have a small order for a small afghan, so I’ll get that done & post pictures of that pretty soon – or as soon as I get it done!

One thought on “What’s been on my hook #crochet

  1. I am working on the ring around the Rosie vest and saw where you had trouble on row 9. Can you help me I am stuck not quite understanding the instruction.
