2015 Crochet-Along 2 & 3

I'm participating in the Crochet-Along over at the Moogly blog
I have decided to use up by stash of baby yarn, and create a baby blanket. 
Here is block #2
I love how the colors turned out.

This is block #3
I'm hoping that by the time I make all 24 blocks, they will all blend well!
Blocks 1, 2, & 3
 I've already started block 4 - it's going to be green and yellow!

American Girl "Elsa" Hats

Aren't these the cutest?

Do you remember when I made this one last year for my niece?

I actually got several order to make more... it was fun!

Then, when I saw THIS pattern and knew that my sweet nieces would LOVE it!!

It was so fun to make!

It was a super easy and fast pattern.... 
When I first made the hat and attached the snowflake, I put it directly over the braid - in the picture above- But, I moved it a little forward (as you can see at the beginning of the post).  I think I like it better forward

But, as you know... if you've read any of my previous blogs... I have trouble with gauge.

So, in my first attempt - It was just WAY to small, and I had to increase my hook to an "I" hook.
I am just very thankful that I have an AG doll to test out these patterns on.

Happy Valentine's Day

When I saw this pattern I knew that I had to make these Heart Wands for some very special girls!

They were so much fun to create!
I mailed 2 of them to my nieces, and they have already received them.
They loved them!!

YAY!!! Success!!!
My plan was to make one for each of my grandchildren, but alas, the oldest is just 3 years old, 
and I KNEW it would be used as a weapon!!
