My Creative Space : Playing with Yarn

I've caught the crochet bug....again (I think it must be the cooler weather..maybe?)

Alannah's beanie was finished off and embellished with an over-sized velveteen bow, which she loves and proceeds to wear to school although it is still technically summer here...he he...so sweet...



Also, I'm having fun playing with a peaked cap style beanie...these two are for littlies - pink is probably up to 6 months, while the blue/latte one fits Levi who is nearly 11 months. I have every intention to add a flower or big wood button or leather star or something to each of these on the join of the peak to the body of the beanie, just to finish it off. There is a local school market that I'm participating in, in a few weeks, so I'm hoping to hook up a few of these to sell on the day. What do you think?


And lastly, just for something different, some more crochet...he he...this one is an indie slouch beanie. I have attempted this before but my hook was 2 sizes smaller than the required hook. Now I've got the right sized hook (8mm, in case you are wondering) and things already seem looser and more slouchy, and I'm in love with this colour.


After some inspiration? Head over to Kootoyoo where inspiration abounds!
