Trendy Ear Flap Hats

NOTE: There will be a pattern for the larger and smaller one in the next couple of weeks. Just need to write it and then get it tested. I'll probably sell it in my etsy shop and in my ravelry shop.

Over the weekend we had some friends over for Chinese food (great little chinese resturant here) and pony rides for the kids. It was so much fun just chatting and giving rides. Anyways, while we were inside chatting I of course was crocheting away and Mindi (she's sooo nice) asked me if I could make her a hat and I was like sure so she told me what she wanted and I got working on it right away.It looks great on the gal I gave it to and she really likes it. Thanks to her I have 2 or 3 orders for the same hat (one of them will be the same colors too). I really appreciate the plug she's giving them. Took me less than 2 hours (I got the whole entire thing almost completely done before they left). Here are some pics of it.

Isn't the model just rad. She should hit the beach and work on her tan next summer though. LOL. Hmm, I never got a pic of that hat with the tassels on it (on the ties and on the top with a little sl st'd cord coming out of the top). The tassels really make it look cute. I love that hat.

Okay, and the gal that I made the first hat for wanted one for her little boy so when I was at there house yesterday I made this one. Still needs the tassels on the ties and on the top though. It looks really cute on him.

Reserve Champion Pineapple Shawl

I entered a shawl among a few others things at our fair this last August. Yay!! The first clothing kind of wearable I've ever entered. I was SOOOO happy when I saw the reserve champion ribbon. I'd been working towards getting one of those for years now.

The Shawl I entered is from my own Pineapple Shawl design. Now I just need to buckle down and get the pattern written up. Here are the pics!!!
