So, I am no longer without a knitting machine. I recently purchased a Brother KH910 on eBay. However, it needs a new spongebar. I have to wait until it arrives before I can play with my new toy.
In the meantime, I’ve been crocheting hats for my Etsy shop. I have 4 done so far and one in progress. Here they are in no particular order:
Talia was kind enough to model for me. Wow, it’s incredibly difficult to get a clear picture of a 7 month old.

This is my progress so far on the hats and booties I plan to donate to the hospital. I want to have 10 pair of booties and 10 hats to donate by the end of the week. As you can see from the hat picture, I got tired of crochet and switched to knit.
This is a close-up picture of my knitted hat. It’s a simple 2x2 rib hat. Pattern can be downloaded here: https://www.box.com/s/b2clbmvor1k9doso77fm

Lately I’ve been working on crochet hats for the Labor and Delivery Ward at our local hospital. It seems like that after every had Dee would ask me if it was for her. Finally, I decided that she needed a hat of her own. This is what I came up with. It’s a simple Granny hat started with a magic loop in the middle. It actually ended up a little too big so I added elastic and tied the two ends to make a pretty bow. She LOVES it!
