Project Pinterest: The Crochet Storm

Happy Monday!  Its Pinterest Project day!  Go over to ILYMTC to see what everybody else has made from Pinterest this week!!!

This past week has been pretty busy, but I managed to get a couple things done.  I've gone on a crocheting frenzy!!!  I seriously have bought more yarn in the past few weeks than I have in my whole life.  You'd think I just learned to do this!  I did get a cool new crochet toy this weekend though!  Its an ergonomic hook handle.  Its supposed to make holding that skinny little hook more friendly on your hands.

This thing is sweet!  You twist off the green part and put the hook inside and it fits your hand perfectly.  And it fits hooks all the way up to size K.  For $6, I couldn't NOT try it!

So back to the Pinteresty stuff.  I was commissioned by my cousin to make a couple hats for her baby boy.  He's in the toddler stage and needs to be warm and fashionable for winter :)  She picked out these bad boys.

I finished the bottom one.... which she obviously didn't want the flower on.  Here's the finished product!!
(**ignore pasty white skin.... my winter color is setting in!)  I can't wait to see the little cutie in this.  The football hat is next on my list!

Also, I made these!!!

My best friend is doing a cookout to benefit breast cancer research this weekend and is going to raffle off baskets.  I made a coffee basket for her to raffle off with a half pound of Starbucks Anniversary blend, a Starbucks mug, Starbucks gift card and these bad boys to go around hot cups of coffee!!!  I so hope she makes a lot of money!!!!

Hopefully something more exciting for next week.  I need to get a move on with Christmas decor!!!  And Christmas gifts!!!  I hate that I can't show you everything I'm working on since it'll give away the gifts, but you better believe I'll have stuff to show off the week after Christmas!  Can. Not. Wait!!!!!


  1. These are adorable! I know how to crochet but I'm not quite this advanced. The only thing I've ever made is a basic, probably lopsided potholder!
