Finding My Stride

Today I finished the Rosy Shells hat that "Anonymous" suggested.  Thank you so much!!!  This was a great pattern and I think it accompanies the scarf very well.  I crocheted it until it was about 7" from the center to the edge and then had my co-worker try it on (as it is her hat/scarf set).  She was so excited about the hat because she said it fit well and it's hard for her to find hats that are just right.  Then she said she was going to put in an order for her six nieces and nephews for Christmas!  Their ages range from 1-7 so this should be fun.  I like how she thinks - such the early bird.


Now I can get ready for the next custom order.  It's a purse for the niece of a co-worker that just pledged A.K.A.  The materials are all picked out, but I'm still thinking of the pattern.  This one is going to have to be an original or an improvised one.  We'll see.  I may slip a couple of the kids' hats in while I think.

Purse Materials

I forgot to mention that I did purchase two skeins of variegated pink sock yarn while I was out of town this weekend.  No, it's not for me, but it's intended for a project for my future SIL.  She really likes pink.  The pattern has been picked out for months.  Also, I have figured out the perfect present for my brother and her.  And yes, it's going to be handmade.  Details later...


  1. Love, love, love the pink and green yarn! That should be awesome when you finish. Can't wait to see what you make your future SIL.

  2. I love the shell pattern on the black hat!

  3. Oh-oh a present for the future couple. I want to know what it is!

    That yarn would make an awesome candy striped fat-bottom bag, don't you think? Can't wait to see your idea. :-D

  4. Hi Libby,

    Oh I'm so happy the pattern is good, I haven't used it myself. I like the way your hat came out though, and might possibly use this pattern myself, after seeing yours.

    Must be very exciting getting in 6 whole custom orders at once. That will keep you busy for a while!

    Love the colors of that yarn for your purse as well. Your sil will like it I'm sure.

    Kind regards.

  5. What a nice pattern! The hat looks great, Libs!

    And the yarn for the bag is yummy! Cant wait to see it or the present you are making!

  6. Love the hat - looks great! congrats on all the sales! =D
