I have been working on a whole lot of items lately, and have a whole lot more coming in the very near future. I am also working on a bunch of different halloween items, so stay on the lookout for those! I am hoping to do some items such as a kitty costume, complete with kitty hat, mittens, and tail for infants and toddlers. I am also hoping to do a line of pumpkin hats and matching candy totes, as well as many other mystery items! Pictures to come soon.  Other than that,  I have just been working on an array of other items for family and a few custom orders. 
The first two pictures are of a Brown and Tan Basketweave  baby blanket for my cousin Sean's new addition to the family! I wanted to do something a little less traditional and more fun. I made it once again with Caron Simply Soft yarn, as I pretty much always do for baby blankets.

This next blanket I did as a custom order for an old friend from high school/junior high school who is also expecting a little one. It is similar to the Pink and Yellow Bobble Stitch Blanket I made a while back, but this one is obviously Gray and Pink and it is Carseat/Stroller sized rather than Crib Size. 

And finally, here are a few of the other things I have made throughout the past couple of weeks. It seems like so much.  On the top left is a newborn sized monkey hat I did as a custom order. I just posed it on the skull because it fit nicely and filled out the hat, so it looked better than when it was laying flat.  Next to the that on the right is a purse I just finished for myself yesterday. I used a pattern for that which I got on Ravelry. Here is a link to the pattern  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hey-sailor . I dont think the detail looks quite as nice on my purse in the yarn I used. I may make another in the future using the cotton yarn they suggest rather than the Red Heart Super Saver I used this time. Finally on the bottom is a skirt I made myself. I made it so I could use it as a swim suit cover up. The pattern is available here  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/emmajeans-minty-green-skirt . As you can see if you look at the original pattern, it is quite a bit longer than I made it. I figured it would be a little too hot and heavy for me since I live in AZ, so I modified the pattern to only go up to Row 20, then added the first 4 Rows of fringe in the pattern. I also made a skirt in black but did not take a picture. 
That pretty much sums everything up, I think. This post was once again very long and drawn out, I need to get on here more frequently to make posts rather than waiting a month between each post and writing a novel. I hope you guys stuck with me the whole time, and once again, look forward to some sneak peaks of some Halloween items very soon. There may even be some free patterns ;).
 
Hello everybody, this is my first blog post. I hope everyone enjoys reading the things to come and comes back often to see how things are going. Since some of you may not be familiar with me or my crochet work quite yet, I will share a few things about myself as well as a few of my favorite items I have made so far. My name is Veronica, I am 24 and currently a stay at home mom. I enjoy a lot of things including cooking, crocheting, singing (anything involving music really), and collecting rubber duckies. So, it is possible you will see a few duckies and possibly recipes on occasion, and I will attempt to keep them somewhat organized for you. 

A Few Cute Little Hats!

Over the winter I got a chance to do a few very adorable hat projects. Now that winter is over I most likely will not get to crochet any more hats for a while, but still wanted to share a couple of my favorites.  That is my daughter, Violet, modeling the hat in the top left and bottom picture.  The top left picture is a custom Minnie Mouse hat I made for a friend. The top right picture, is a custom Black Spiderman Hat that I made for the same friend. The bottom picture is a custom Foofa (from Yo Gabba Gabba) hat I made for my daughter. All of these hats were of my own design, patterns may possibly come soon if anyone is interested. 

Amigurumi

Here are a couple of my favorite crocheted amigurumi. As with the hats, all of these were also all of my own design and I did not use a pattern. On occasion I will use a pattern for things, but I will specify if a pattern has been used and link to said pattern on here.  The top left is a red Dr. Who Dalek that I made for a friend. The top right is Homer Simpson in his underwear drinking a Duff beer, also for a friend. The bottom is a custom Steely Mc. Beam that I made and sold.  Most of the features on my amigurumi are done in felt. 

Unique Scarves

These are just a couple of the unique scarves that I have made. The first (left), is a Circuit Board Scarf I made for a friend. I love the way it turned out, but it was a lot of work and there will most likely not be any replicas in the future. The second (right) on the other hand, is a Hello Kitty Scarf I made and sold. This one I would love to do again, so just let me know if you are interested in one.  Also, ignore the horrible picture of me.  As with the hats, I probably won't get to make a whole lot more scarves until fall comes around again, but I can't wait!

Blankets

I love making baby blankets. This is how I started off crocheting. My grandma taught me how to make a granny square blanket when I was about 7 and that is where it all started.  The one on the left is a Yellow and Pink Bobble Stitch blanket with Ruffled Edges. That one as well as everything else you are seeing on this first post is of my own pattern. The second is a custom Blessed Be Man (a fantastic band, look him up on Facebook) for a friend. This one is all single crochet's and I charted out the pattern. This was my first blanket of this type and I love how it turned out. 

Well, that is just a little bit of what I have done recently. Thank you to everybody who stuck this post through to the end, I appreciate it. Check back for a lot more posts in the future!
