A new addiction?

Now cute are these hats?  These are a quick easy project that you can start and finish in an afternoon.  I found the patterns on Ravelry.  My first make, using Blooming Rose hat pattern .......

Miss E thought the baby hat was SOOOO cute she requested one.  I made this in the largest size which is supposedly for a two year old - but this fits Miss 9 well.  The small one is a gift for a newborn.


Yarn:  Creme de le Creme - 100% combed cotton.  Body of hat in Baby Pastels, trim in Fushia - $3.00/ball.  I got both hats from one ball of the white yarn.

Hook:  5 mm

Difficulty:  Easy - great beginners project.  

Then of course I had to make a hat for Miss A!

You can find this pattern here - which I also found via Ravelry.  I enjoyed making this hat, it is a little more challenging, but nothing too complicated - a great project to try once you are feeling confident with your skills.  


Yarn:  From my stash and it didn't have a label - it is a cotton mix (I think), it feels a bit like chenille.  

Hook:  5mm

I think I have a new addiction!  There is something very satisfying starting and finishing something so cute in just a couple of hours.
