Virginia Tech Pom-Pom Hat

Basic hdc hat. First round after increases added 1 row of orange, followed with 4 additional rounds of burgandy and one more orange. Added earflaps, braids and pom-poms. Sc, around the entire hat, earflaps included. Added white football inspired embroidery to the front.

Hat came out very cute and fits well. This hat would also be cute with a small VT embroidery patch on the front without the white stitching. Quite possible that i may make more, with embroidery patches and without pom-poms for the boys.

Cabbage Patch Hat

Made a basic hdc beanie cap, omitting the final hdc round. In place of the hdc round and the sc round i replaced it with 3 sc loop stitch rows.

Pigtails were made using a dvd case to make them even.

As-We-Go Stripey Blanket

It's getting there. One row at a time. Just using scraps from random projects from the past year. Really cannot wait to have this completed and to snuggle with it this upcoming winter.

The pattern for this can be found here. She has the most amazing pattern too. Heavy on the pictures but very thorough on her explanations on every stitch.

Wavy Chevron Crib Blanket

I absolutely love how this turned out. It was a quick order. Customer requested this and after purchasing yarn I had less than a week to figure out the stitch that was close to the customers inspiration photo and to stitch this up. After some procrastinating on my part I spent a little less than 3 days working this up.
