Garter Ear Flap Hat

I made this for my sister's baby who is due to arrive in January. I made it with some Encore Plymouth worsted yarn that I had. The pattern is by Purl Soho and I found it here on Ravelry. This was fun and easy.

Wickerwork Hat

Still on my hat kick, I decided to try again to make one that would fit me. I had some leftover Berroco Vintage from my baby's Miss Daisy sweater, so I used it for this hat. The pattern is here on Ravelry. This was fun to make and is very stretchy, so it's fits both my six year old and me.

Snowflake Hat

Even though I didn't enjoy the first color work hat that I did, I decided to give it another try. I used some leftover Berroco Vintage DK (the white) and some leftover Knit Picks Swish DK (the blue) for this and made it for my six year old. I'm glad I gave color work another try because this was more enjoyable and my daughter just loves it. When she wore it to the store, she told me that people would probably think we bought the hat. Haha, I don't think so, but it made me smile. The pattern can be found here on Ravelry.

It turned out a little more snug than I wanted where the color work is. I think I need more practice with colors.

Herringbone Hat

This was my first try at color work. There was nothing wrong with the pattern, but I just didn't enjoy making this hat. So, I cut it short. It was supposed to be for me, but really just fits my baby because I didn't make it long enough. I used some Berroco Vintage DK that I had leftover from other projects and the pattern can be found here on Ravelry.

Miss Daisy Sweater

I finished this sweater in a week! I think that's a record for me. I think it turned out cute and I love the pink, although I don't think the pictures show the true color. The pattern can be found here on Ravelry and I used Berroco Vintage.

Baby Emily Cardigan

This is one of those patterns that caught my attention over and over on Ravelry and I finally just had to make it. The pattern was easy to follow and I'm happy with how it turned out. The pattern can be found here on Ravelry and I used Berroco Vintage DK.

Sweater Vest

I finally finished this one. I don't know why it took me so long. I guess I'm just a slow knitter. I would love to be faster. The pattern is called Shore and can be found here on Ravelry. I used Knit Picks Swish DK yarn for this.

I made the 3-4 year size and it fits my almost five year old. But he is a little small. He says he hates it, but at least I got him to wear it to church and smile for a picture!
