Where’s my face?!!! September 19, 2007

I just finished this, the glue on the eyes are still wet.  And smelly.  And that’s why he has no face yet.  That and i am still thinking of how i want him to look!

1405574658_4d98039562_m.jpg  I purposely didn’t give him any arms cause i think he’s a sweetie without them!   I did give him a little tail though (ok, gross, i’ll rephrase that)  I did crochet a cottontail for him.  (much better!)

Kopf hats

Filed under: crochet,family — gnathalie2 @ 12:01 am

Yeah, i’m a nerd.  But you love me anyway!!!!  I made these two hats last night and this morning.  The pink one is Tasha’s and the green one is mine, but we all know the kids will wear it more than me!!  So who’s ready for a baaaaaad picture of me????  Oh!! I am!!!!

1403870335_da391ba142_m.jpg  Tasha wore it to school and Madaleine wore it on the way home.  Here is another view of the green hat:

The pink hat was made with a size J hook and Bernat softee chunky yarn.  I did an 8 sc in ring, increased for 9 rounds, and then did hdc plus ch 1 around till it was big enough. 

The green one is with an I hook and Red Heart Soft yarn, same as above.  I did like 5 or 7 rounds to get the correct length.  I didn’t use a pattern, i just winged it.  I think they turned out pretty darn good!!
