Chris' Hunting Hat

He wore it once and said it was too short. So I ripped the entire top out of it and added about 3 inches of stockinette so it would be long enough to pull down over his ears when he gets cold. Then finished out the top again. He wore it the next time he went hunting and LOST IT! HRUMPH!

Rachel's Fingerless Mittens

I decided to knit & crochet a few Christmas Presents this year. I'm making Rachel some fingerless mittens. The yarn is Farmhouse Yarns Andy's Merino II in Calico. I am using a G/6 4.25 mm crochet hook. The pattern is from "Basic Fingerless Mittens" by Julia Vaconsin.

I expect to finish them this weekend. I hope she likes them.

Christy's Vanity

We bought this vanity at a yard sale for $25. The finish was in very rough shape, but it was really sturdy and Christy loved it. This is the before picture.

Then I stripped it.

I'll post the painted pics later.

Hunting Hat

Last night I finished my first hat. Chris wanted a camo hat for hunting. I started it Saturday evening and finished it Monday evening. It went very quickly and seeing as how I made up the pattern as I went, I think it turned out very nice. I enjoyed it so much that I'm now filling orders from my girls. Rachel's is first. It will have a rolled edge and be knit with a cream yarn.

First Post

This bag was made over a year ago. I had a t-shirt that belonged to my oldest daughter that was a bit holey and needed tossing. However, I loved the little bee on the front so I looked for a way to keep it. I put it together with a shirt from my youngest daughter and parts of a pair of my old jeans and made this bag. I really like it and so do my girls.
