Here's the one for the baby girl, obviously. Originally I wanted the whole thing to be the varigated pink yarn, but when I was almost finished with it, I realized that I probably wouldn't have enough to finish. Since I didn't want to scrap the whole thing, I decided to finish the top with the white yarn. Then to help it along, I added the flowers around the whole pink part of the hat. Turned out kind-a fun. The flowers were really fun to make actually, oh, they're crocheted. As I was crocheting the flowers I thought that they might be fun to add to the tops of presents or something. We'll see if this ever actually happens, but it's fun to imagine.
This one is for a new family that just moved in. She's due really soon, and this will be their 3rd boy. I don't know them as well, so I decided just to keep it simple and basic. Can't go too wrong with a standard tan/blue/white motif.
I thought this one turned out really well. This family are HUGE razorback fans. Both parents have graduated from the U of A, so I knew their baby's hat had to be red and white. I think they'll love it.
Last but not least... this is actually the first of the 4 hats posted that I made. It's also the only one that has already been gifted, and it is my very favorite! I want to make the same pattern in a little bigger size for Silas. I wish this were a better picture so that you could truly appreciate it's beauty. The basic color is an army green, then it has a bunch of colored stripes in it - yellow, orange, navy blue, tan, white. Anyway, I really love it... and although I don't know this family really very well either, I just knew that this would be the perfect hat for their baby. Some people are just like that.
I'm working on a few other fun knit or crochet items. I've really been into this stuff lately... it's tons o' fun. If you don't know how to knit or crochet, come on over, I'd love to share the small amount of knowledge that I have. Or, contact my sister Michelle, she'd love to share too!
