The "Divine Hat", slightly modified!

I love this free Ravelry pattern and have been wanting to give it a whirl for some time now.  So, I took the plunge, changed up the post stitch to angle a different direction, and I LOVE THIS HAT!!!  Now, I need to make a lot more.  I have to work on an afghan for my brother first, which was promised him 2 years ago.  Bad sister, bad sister . . .

"Claire" Dress




Aptly named after my sweet Claire, the recipient, this dress has been floating around in my mind for quite awhile now.  So, I decided to take the plunge and make it!

Robin's Egg Hat

My new niece came for a visit today, and I couldn't let her leave without whipping up a cotton crocheted beanie for her : ).  Isn't she GORGEOUS?!!!

Dressing Up a Common Shrug

I really love this Ravelry free shrug pattern, knitted from the top down in 1 piece.  However, I knew that adding a little shell trim would do wonders for it!  I made it for my niece to wear with her Easter dress this Sunday.  It's  a super-soft buttercup yellow.  LOVE making this!

Angel Wings Pinafore

Finally finished my 1st crocheted garment!  Couldn't be happier with the super simple pattern from Bev's Cottage.  It's a super soft cotton/modal blend in sport weight with an H hook.  I used Shine Sport in Lady Slipper from Knit Picks.  Such a pleasure to crochet!
