A NEW Challenge...What a fun idea!

So I was asked to make a special order. Only I kicked it up a notch. She originally asked me if I could make her a tri-tipped hat only with an owl such as the cable owl hat.  I wasnt really sure I would be able to do I told her that I would crochet the pieces like the ones I did on Haileys owl hat. Anyway...I decided that since I always am excited to challenge myself to "up the ante" so to speak...that I was up for it. It could be fun. I did it and am pretty darned excited that it turned out better than I had anticipated. =o) I mean, yay! And the new owner loves it too!! Its already sold. I cant wait to make another one.

Had a special request of pink n black. Its shorter than I made the first one, but I still think its super cute! Next one will have more length in it. What do you think?

Hat Crazy Lately

Well, lets see...I finished up my "stash buster-intarsia practice hat" and then I was asked to make a Hello Kitty hat.  And I made a special order hat for Albert!!! Everyone loves all of them and I am going to share them with you now. =o)

I wanted to try to knit an ear flap hat... After coming across a pattern, I went to town. I knit the hat up and then I crocheted pieces to put onto the hat. I have always loved the owl hats that I see everywhere in the I was on a mission. I think it turned out really well. There are a few things I learned along the way to make it even better next time around. But I can see myself really getting into this animal hat line. =o)
