FO Friday: Edith Hat

Get a head start on Halloween!

I’m starting to stock up on these hats. Because last year, I was crocheting at maximum capacity to keep up with demand!

The most popular item during Halloween season last year were these Edith hats. It was getting made in all sizes!

With the recent release of a new app called Pokemon Go!, I finally had an excuse to make these chubby cuties. This pattern is easy to follow and quick to make!

Mici the Mermaid

I’m gonna lose track soon on what part of “Adventures in Lalylala-Land” I’m currently at, thus the title. Anyways Mici is finally here! I feel it’s been a while since my last Lalylala creation.

This one used some metallic thread, which gives it a great effect!

Mici the Mermaid

The main reason for this guy’s photo shoot delay was finding a location. But during the 4th of July weekend, we had a chance to drive a ways away from home and found a spot for him at the Kaka’ako Waterfront park.

Mici the Mermaid

It was nice to have some ships around in the background, I felt it inspires a backstory for Mici. As if he wandered off and got stranded far away from home. Perhaps he could use a water-dwelling friend.

  • Yarn: Red Heart With Love in Eggshell, and Bluebell; Red Heart Super Saver in White and Red; Loops and Threads Impeccable in Royal

Birthday Banner

Birthdays come around so quickly, and I finally got one of those fancy shmancy cutting machines. So, I made this cute little banner!

For this project, I used the Banner Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers. I printed out and cut the letters using a font I liked in Google Docs (sorry, I can’t find it again). Put the whole thing on jute, and done!

Easy peasy! I’m definitely making one for my shop’s next craft table!

Since you got this far, be warned!  I’ll be holding an auction on my Facebook page this month. So get ready! Items may be ready to ship, they may be made to order. We’ll find out when it’s live!

Black Tourmaline Hat

I felt like knitting a hat out of a yarn I got a while back. It probably took me longer to find a pattern/design to knit than it took for me to actually make the hat. (Crocheter problems, lol!)

This pattern is super easy to follow and I just love the unique look of the finished product! This would make a great beginner project.

  • Pattern from: Caitlin ffrench
  • Yarn: Puppy Bergen (??? some imported yarn I scored from a craft swap)
  • Needle: 8.0 mm Clover Takumi bamboo double pointed knitting needles from Clover USA

Charlotte Square

We recently bought a new dining set, and found a perfect centerpiece at the thrift store. This created a need for something to protect the table from the glass edge of the bowl. It was a perfect chance to make the Charlotte square from lookatwhatimade.net!! (link below)

I didn’t complete the last part since I didn’t want it to be too large for my table. After blocking, the square ended up being 20 inches.

This kind of beauty does not come “cheap.” Like the designer’s Sophie’s Universe CAL, the instructions need a bit more focus and you may not be able to recall what happens on your show. But the result makes pausing Netflix well worth it!

  • Pattern from: Dedri Uys
  • Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver in Aran and Light Grey; Caron Perfect Match in Lavender
  • Hook: 5.0mm Soft Touch crochet hook from Clover USA

Pixie Hat

Another quick post, just wanna share a quick project!

I felt like knitting recently and use up some scraps. The transition of the colors started earlier than the pattern calls for because I ran out of yarn!
