It's bee a hat week for me. First my niece bought me a very nice ball of yarn from their visit to Colorado. I made a hat with it. I had to supplement it with some alpaca yarn I had. The pattern is a FPDC around the crown and then HDC around the head.
I also made a baby cap with some ILTY Candy Corn ombre. It was just a simple pattern that I made as I went....
The last is a cap from vallieskids.blogspot.com called Meagan-wants-you. I made it for my friend's daughter's birthday. I am wokring on a scarf now. She likes purple, so I went shopping in my stash and found some Red Heart Aztec that fit the bill.

This is a felted bag I made as a shower favor. It worked up very quickly! Lion Brand Midnight Yarn ran when felting so the colors aren't what they should be, but still acceptable. The pattern is free and called Booga Bag.
I didn't do an icord for the handles. Instead, I loosely chained a whole bunch with an N hook and two strands, then I sl st into the underside loop of the chain all the way back.
This is called the "Liquid Silver Wrap" and is from the elann.com website. The laceweight yarn I used is Pure silk 20-2 from Yarn and Fiber Company and is color storm. I highly recommend using laceweight needles, as it makes a huge difference. I only did two repeats wide of the pattern, not three. I got my beads from Hobby Lobby.
The shawl pin is a Fair Trade endeavor by a group called "Rwanda Knits".

This is the BICO I made baby Cindy. However I used an H instead of an I, so it may be too small. I will make a new one, if it is...I used 1 skein of Bernat Baby Boucle in Water Slide. It is edged with Bernat Baby Boucle in Dust of Pink. It's about a 3 month size.

This is my "non"Fat Bottom Bag. Although I followed the pattern. I did not read the stitch pattern correctly and only did HDC, instead of HHDC. I also included pics of the lining. The other bag was the one I finished during the summer, but I did just line it.
