Oh, but first, the baby - out of a sock. I made her in a bunting for the cutest little girl ever.
Do you remember back in the day - the little crocheted purses that were also a bassinet? My friend asked me to make one for her adorable granddaughter. I think she was remembering several years ago when I made this.
Anyway, this time I made it a bassinet, not a mushroom. I also couldn't find the fairy pattern, so I looked around and finally copied a doll I saw on Pinterest. You pull the straps and the bassinet becomes a little purse to carry your baby around in.
Here she is all nestled snug in her bed. I made her a little mattress to firm up the bottom of the bed but it was just ehhhh so no pics.
Once I was hooking again, it was a slippery slope to more projects. Especially when my oldest texted me a picture of some hats that a lady sells at her work and asked me which one she should buy. I said, "Neither! I will make you one." So I did:
I pretty much winged it and I am not loving it, but my daughter assures me it is fabulous. At one time I bought a newsboy pattern on Etsy. I just need to find where I saved it so I can make it again.
Then I saw a "new" pattern everyone is raving about called Alligator or Crocodile Scales. I think I remember this from about 30 years ago, but I had to make an ear warmer right away. I call it sunflower, because with the dark hair on top, it looks like a sunflower. Right?
And then ...
Last but not least, I got a free pattern from Maybe Matilda for participating in the Cowl Along and I got this one - a basketweave earwarmer with a cute huge flower. The flash blanked out the white basketweave, but you can sort of see it on the side. I put a huge orange button in the middle of the flower. I pretty much love it.
