Hooded Scarf

 I finished the hooded scarf I made for my daughter. I did not follow a pattern to make this. I totally winged it. The pattern stitch is alternating 2 sc and 2 slip stitch. It did make a really nice texture.

Road Trip

So my husband and I are again at Mesquaki Casino. We to took a bus tour and the long drive means I am able to finish my stocking cap.
So I took the picture at the lobby and the dome was reflecting on the glass table.
So I took another picture of just the table. It will be perfect for the Weekend Reflections meme later on this week.

I also started a hooded scarf at the request of my daughter. I am doing alternating 2sc and 2 slip stitches. I like how the texture looks, but I is a little stiff. I am hoping that it will soften up a little once I wash it.

Lacy Bracelet

It time to give you another Christmas gift idea for you.  My Lacy Fan Bracelet.
 I had purchased these bead a while ago on clearance. I thought I would try it out as a button. The holes were on the side, so I ran the yarn through it and made it part of a Magic Ring and did 11 sc in the ring, then followed the pattern from row one.
 Turned our really nice. You can find the pattern here.

Stocking Caps

A couple of the many projects I have going on are stocking caps . I have a knitted hat and a crocheted hat with similar styles. The pattern for the knitted hat is off a I Love This Yarn label. The crocheted hat is version of the knitted hat, using alternate front and back dc.
Here is a finished crocheted hat I did. I did this from the bottom up using a dc foundation row.
The one I am working on, I am doing top down, as I am not a fan of the dc foundation row.

Christmas Tree

It is hard to believe we are in the month of November already, before you know it will be Christmas.

It also means (at least for me) a mad dash of making Christmas presents. So I thought I would share some of my patterns to give you ideas for the upcoming holiday.

I am starting with the Christmas Tree Pattern.

That can be found here.
