Pumpkin Hat Pattern

This past week a friend of mine asked if I could make a pumpkin hat for her new little niece that is arriving next month. I was thinking about making the one from our blog.

If you recall it's this one.

You can find the pattern posted here. It's really cute and I thought it would be great for her. But the very next day I got an email with several crochet patterns, and there was this little cute newborn pumpkin hat. I just thought it would be so perfect, so I had to try it out. I love this one we have but I do love to try out new patterns, so I had to make it. I'm planning on doing a pattern review on it. I just have to buy more yarn! I used the last of it up giving the pattern a try. So look forward to the review coming, hopefully by early next week.

 You can find the pattern here. Here is a picture of their hat:

And here is mine:

I did change up the stem and vine color but kept to the orange. I just love how it turned out. I'm thinking of running over and trying it out on my new little niece. I think she'd just look so adorable in it. Also, if you are interested in it and aren't a crocheter, I am selling them at my Etsy site here.

If you try it out let us know how it went for you and send pictures!

New Season, New Projects!

Here we are again. It's October and time to get out all that winter gear. It was snowing last week at my family's house. Brrr... And here it's been in the 60-70s. Ahh, how nice. ; ) Lol, it is getting cold here too but hopefully not too fast. I'm enjoying the great weather.

So much has happened in the last few months. Cat has moved states. Amy and Cat both have started their own businesses. It feels like I'm the one that things are staying basically the same. Though I do have to brag that I have the cutest new niece. She was just born last week. Soo cute! I can't wait to get her into one of my hats. : )

Onto my latest projects. I have a list a mile long and I just can't get to anything during the late Spring/Summer. It's just crazy here and hey, it's hot. So making my little crocheted creations goes on the back burner. But now, it's Fall and cooling down to very nice temperatures. So without further ado I wanted to introduce my projects.

Halloween Fun Hat

We sponsored Cat's Summer Fitness Challenge at her other blog. This is the hat that I made for it. It's so festive, huh! It was a lot of fun to make. You can check out the challenge at her blog and the challenge here.

My other project is:

Utah State Aggie "Big Blue"

I have to admit I am not the creative one. I can use a pattern, I can make things and try them out, but I just am not creative. Cat is sooo creative. She created this pattern and has been making the USU Big Blue hat for a couple of years, but with her recent move and new business venture she just doesn't have time to make them. I bought her pattern a couple years ago and with her very gracious permission she is allowing me to make and sell them now. I wanted to add a little something, and that's where the pink Big Blue comes in. Every little girl I know loves pink. I wanted to give people options. Here are my infant Big Blue hats. (Adult hat pictures will be forthcoming, I just need to get to the store to get buttons!)

Honestly, what do you think?

Do you like the pink one? I really want an honest opinion and would love your response.

They are a lot of fun to make and I think they turned out really cute. If you would like one, I will be selling them in my Etsy shop. You can find both the Big Blue and the fishnet beanie here. Or you can contact Cat about purchasing the Big Blue pattern. Now onto the next pattern on my list!

What have you been wanting to make? Have you made anything new this year/season? Share pictures with us and we'd love to have a whole post about YOU, our fans and what you've been up to.

***Update: I finally was able to get the right buttons. Who knew it could be so hard to find the perfect one! Lol. Anyway, here's my adult sizes.
