Some more projects

Since I am here visiting my grand kids, I thought I better take advantage of these cute little kiddo's!
I made this hat for baby Jack and since it is fall I thought it would be a perfect hat for a cut little pumpkin.  The hat is a little big but the way he is growing it will fit soon!

I knitted this with three colors and when I did the checkerboard I just left the colors attached and just carried the next color over  so it was quick because I didn't need to keep starting a new color.

I added the stem and the little pumpkin curly Q's to the top and it made the perfect fall hat.

I can't get enough of this cute little guy and I am going to be sad because I am leaving tomorrow.

He is just the best baby and I am going to miss all of his snuggles!


This little girl, I am going to miss as well, whatever I am doing she is right by my side and if I do it she has to do it as well.  Of course, if baby Jack was getting his photo in the basket, she needed one as well.


The hat actually fits her pretty well.

I embroidered this blanket before I left and finished the edging after I got here.

I used the furry yarn to go on this little froggy blanket and just did a single crochet all around the edge.

It is nice and warm and fuzzy!

The frog was embroidered on my machine.

I then made this crocheted scarf out of #3 crochet thread. I was just making a flower chain and then thought it would make a cute scarf.

I then added a flower ring to fasten the scarf together. I thought that would be easier than tying it.


It turned out okay, but I would make a few adjustments to the flowers and not make them so loose.

It kind of had a shabby chic feeling this way.


It was quick to do and I will have to make another and make the adjustments to it.
It has been a great trip and so fun to be with these cute little munchkins!

I love those (and those kids are adorable). I just used that frog fabric to make cloth napkins for my son tonight.
I will probably have photos posted on my site soon:

Oh. my. goodness. Your grandson in that adorable hat is seriously the cutest thing I've seen all day. Precious!! My son {3 yrs old} would get a kick out of a pumpkin hat too. I'd be thrilled if you would link this to my pumpkin craft challenge...and I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that if you do, I'll feature you next week!
