Craft Shows and Orders and Gifts! Oh, My!

Tis the season. Hard to believe I have not posted since October 2nd! Fall has arrived, and so has the busy. October was full of hustle and bustle and my hook got so busy my hand decided to protest. Here is a peek at some of what I’ve been doing…

A dear friend of mine has been battling cancer, I flew out to Illinois to visit with her and attend a benefit auction. While there I made her a horse hat per her request along with a few other crochet items that went into a raffle. I didn’t use a pattern for this, but there are some great patterns out there!

For Breast Cancer Awareness month, I put together this hat and wristers set using Deborah Norville Collection Serenity Baby Yarn in Tea Roses. I used a basic beanie pattern for the hat, a row of double crochet for the ribbon, and Red Heart’s pattern for the wristers. Pattern Here (Free Pattern)
What does the fox say??  If you have not seen this video yet, take a moment and watch. (You will either love it or hate it.)
I’m in the love camp on this one, and had to try this Sly Fox Hat Pattern by Lisa Gutierrez (Free Pattern) It was a hit and was one of the first hats to go at the craft show I did last weekend!
So I did my first craft show last weekend. All things considered it went quite well. I have one more on the 16th and one in December. It is going to be a busy few months. One of the favorites was this scarf. Though I didn’t use a pattern for it, there is a very similar pattern on Ravelry by Christy Fisher (Paid Pattern)
I have also been playing with itty bitty stuff! My son’s teacher had a new baby and he wanted to give her an owl hat. I used the owl hat pattern from Repeat Crafter Me (Free Pattern) with just a few minor changes, the diaper cover is by Boomer Beanies’(Paid Pattern).
And this set for a friend who’s granddaughter was born 7 weeks early. There isn’t a pattern for the hat, but the booties are from Deb’s Crafts (Free Pattern) I would have never thought to make the booties with an open heel so they can wear them even if the wires are attached to their little feet.

There is so much more I would like to share with you, but I have craft shows to prepare for, orders to fill, and gifts to be made! The holidays are quickly approaching and there is way to much cool stuff out there I want to try.  I leave you with this…my little Crochet Protege’…Elsa is one of my daycare babies and she loves to pretend to crochet!
Happy Crocheting!!
