Bloom Hat ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home

Intermediate Skill Crotchet Pattern
 By Jessie

This hat was inspired by an old potholder pattern that can be found here.

This is a slightly loose fitting hat with a tie string that tightens it to fit. It creates an adorable flower look. Make it from all one color, or change colors for each row of petals. The sample was made with Bernat Softee Baby yarn in various colors and a 3.5mm hook.

Much craziness since we last talked. Let’s see here, how about a basic run down?

Gift-for-Pennsic-friends

First, Doug went off to Pennsic XL (that’s 40, not extra large). It was quite surreal to know that he was there, while I wasn’t; even more so each evening when he would call. However, considering everything we had planned with my Mother’s side of the family in the upcoming week, there was no sane or financially intelligent way for the rest of us to join him. (more…)

Just dropping in to give you a quick peek at what I’ve been up to as of late.

fixed-my-arm-warmers

I made these arm warmers many moons ago, but they kept slipping down. The top ribbing was only about 1/2″, just not long enough. So I undid the top 4″ of knitting, and redid it all in a k2 p2 rib. Much better, not more slipping. I have a feeling they will get much more use this fall and winter now that they stay up! (more…)

We’ve been having a very nice summer here. So fun I have neglected you, my friends. I’m not going to pretend that I can catch you all up, but I may toss in a post  here or there with some fun snaps from earlier this summer.

Hexagon-pin-cushion-2011

Here is something I did while my hand was broken. I believe I told you all that I discovered I could cross stitch with a broken hand. I decided I needed a pin cushion so I would stop putting my needles in the arm of the couch. (more…)

We had a very nice Mother’s day. It started out as any Sunday, cleaning and shopping.

Then I was off to play with the Yarrrn Club at InsaniTea!! I worked on cross stitch, as it is something I can do left handed.

At 4pm, when the fiber fun was over, Doug and the girls showed up. We had a little tea party. The Yummy Berry tea that Ingred served up was, well, YUMMY!!!! I had to buy some to bring home. The girls played the little bongo drums and a guitar and danced around between cups. It was a lovely time.

Then the four of us walked around a bit. It was a gorgeous day! Eventually we stopped and had a wonderful outdoor dinner at Raymond’s. They have a wonderful menu with both vegetarian and meat dishes. I have to remember them next time I have veggie guests!

Finally we crossed the street and grabbed some dessert to go from Cupcakes Galore. Kyla got an Elmo cupcake, and Vada got Hello Kitty.

They are my girls, alright. The first thing they did was eat the eyes. Mmmm.
