The hat

Well, I spent all afternoon making this hat, the pattern is from art of crochet by teresa.  Anyway, I put it on and asked Paul what he thought.  He got a pained expression on his face and said it's cute.  I asked if he'd be embarrassed to be seen with me in it, he said a little bit.  So, I gave it to Madeline and he said it's okay for a little girl to be cute.
Notice the pompom!

Gideon had to try it on too.

Ugly Duckling

I started this one about two weeks ago and got stuck on the feet. I finally bought some orange yarn and got it done.  The pattern is from innerchildcrochet.com .  Madeline named it Swan "cause it's actually a swan"

Mouse and Pillow

Real mice are gray, but this mouse is brown. It looks cute.

The pillow is made of two different stitches - Tunisian simple stitch on this side and double crochet on the other side.

Ruffled Cuff

This will always keep me warm, and I will keep it on everyday. It is very soft.

We're expanding to include all things made of yarn.

Our first attempt at crocheting an animal, without a pattern.

This owl was done with a pattern from coatsandclark.com

Pompoms Look Nice

Pompoms are so pretty.
They are very soft.
Big and small.
Every colour.
Looking nice in every way.
Simple to make.
And easy to do.
We like pompoms.
