Knitting/ crocheting updates.

I am currently working on a sweater for my baby due December 23. I am having some problems with it, but I think I can get it all worked out just the way I want it!!

I have been busy making things for Christmas this year.
For Ellie I have knitted a horse head hat for her...way cute! I crocheted her a horse purse also.

I am going to be making a monkey hat and purse for Shyla.

I am going to try and get a Dale Earnhardt, Jr hat made for Lehman and a Dale, Sr hat made for Dennis.

I made myself a Kyle Busch Stocking!!! :)

I still need to get Allisons (my baby) baby blanket finished.
Its really cute and made in Pinks, white and brown.
I also made her a very cute little purple hat!

I have written the horse hat pattern out and need to get it on The horse purse attern can be found here!

My knits (I know I promised these awhile back but I got a little side tracked)

My cell phone cozy. I did add the little pocket on front later on.

The Hello Kitty hat I made for Shyla, she absolutely loved it!

The little red alien I made for Lehman. Now he wants a robot lol!

The m&m roll brim hat I made to show I was a fan of Kyle Busch, I am still not done with this yet!

Busy baby booties

Here is the "Baby Ugg" booties I designed yesterday. I think its adorable! Its made with pink and black wool yarn using a G hook.

Took very little yarn and very little time.

Here is my cowgirl booty I made. I love the little heart! The pattern can be found here BOOTIES

And here are the little tiny baby flip flops I designed. Everyone wears them, so why not baby too right? Well now she/he can!
I loved making this pattern. Its so simple and comes out so cute! I still have one or two things to fix on it before the pattern is complete, but I still have adjustments on almost all my patterns before they are ready to sell.
Hope you enjoy looking at the little shoes as much as I enjoyed making them!

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice cream

Here is my cute little ear flap hat I made for the baby, with matching car seat blanket.
I used brown, white and pale green for this. I didn't use blue or pink because I have yet to find out what the baby is...
Any way the pattern is out of Stitch 'N Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker. The pattern was designed by Bev Ireland. Its called the Seija Set and is really cute and easy to make!

Well last week Dennis bought me "Knitting for Dummies". I have been trying since then to teach myself how to knit, and today I finally got it!!!! My stitches are perfect and aren't to tight or to loose. I bought a set of circular needles today and on my first try nailed it! And within the last half hour I learned how to do a cable stitch without using a cable needle. !!!YAY ME!!!
Now I just have to learn how to use the double pointed needles and then after I have made a gazillion swatches I can actually make something using a pattern....
I am so proud of hands and fingers hurt like crazy but I don't care I am so happy!
