Catching up

I like to make bébé O a new hat for each new season. Her winter hat was getting to be too warm even though the weather is still quite cold!
So I had this cotton chenille yarn on hand and it just right for a little crochet hat.
This is the first one I made and it's much too small for her (what was I thinking!) so it's now available in my shop.
The next one I made is just right for her.

I also made this multi coloured hat for the shop.

After a trip to visit with our son last month, I visited Wellington Fiber farm in Elora. They have angora goats...just too cute! I could not help myself, I picked up a few skeins of mohair yarn while I was there. This hat is called Mohair topper. The content is 50% mohair, 50% wool.

 I just love those colours!

And the piece I'm working on is the Delicate Lace Scarf. The yarn is yummy 100% alpaca from Misty Haven alpacas. I've had the yarn in my stash for a couple of years and started it several times, but I just could not get the pattern right. I kept getting mixed up and would rip it apart...I was almost ready to give up...but I'm way too stubborn for that!!!
So this time, I used stitch markers every 10 sts to make sure I did not get confused with the pattern once more. This way, I know right away if I messed up!
I love it...can't wait to block it to better see the lace pattern.


  1. Lucky granddaughter, another hat!

    I love the intense colours of the yarn from Wellington Fibres. C'est bon chapeau!!

  2. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comments on my new business venture. I really love finding Ontario bloggers and am now following. Your creations are gorgeous. I love yarns, and both knitting and crocheting but I must say that I am not as accomplished as you are! The hats are gorgeous. Please stop by anytime!
