A Sneak Peak at the Boyfriend beanie ( will be released this week)I made a shawl and other projects I have made recently



Merry Christmas everyone!!! I made this Stole pattern (which can be worn like this or off the shoulders)  to wear to the Woman's Christmas party at my church.

This is full of textured yarn and a 4 ply and everytime I wear it I get soo many lovely comments about it!

My friend and I thought it would be fun to use the Christmas trees at Downtown Disney as a fun backdrop! 

So we love to crochet and we love the men in our lives.. However most men are not exactly jumping up and down asking us to knit ( why is it that with some no matter how many times you tell them you crochet they still say KNIT) them a sweater... Remember the days of fearing Grandma's handmade crochet... Well here is a pattern I designed with even the manlyist man alive, This hat is far from cute, it is textured, thick ( gotta love practical) and looks good with out it looking too good.

I used Vickie Howell yarn Sheepish and a size I ( J for a larger head) crochet hook
I barley had enough with 1 ball to finish this hat so I recomend getting 2 balls and know you will have plenty left over for another project. You can also use any 4ply yarn
here is another view of it.. I love how of setting the posts creates a richer look then regular basket weave!  This is the same hat as the one above look how different lighting can make a hat look/....
