Rainbow Chain Headband

A fun spin on chain headbands.
 Most chained headbands I have seen have been 1-3 strands and are worked in a round. This headband has ties for an adjustable fit.

Beaded Game Day Headband

Some of my favorite things to crochet are headbands. I love Ravelry's free selection - I make many from it, although I rarely get around to posting pics of the finished ones.
College football starts this weekend and I wanted to make a quick headband that would keep my wispy growing out bangs out of my face. I came up with this fun beaded one. Make one in your school colors and it will be an instant hit.

One Skein Ruffled Capelet

You may think that knit/crochet is my greatest passion. It's not, thrift shopping is. I'm not the type to buy something just because it is cheap, I know what I want and I love getting it super cheap.
This week I found a full skein of Lion Brand Homespun yarn. I am not one to leave poor yarn all alone so I took it to the counter and the lady only charged me 50 cents for it. DEAL :)

Lassie Wig

This hat was featured on the Moogly Blog Crochet Wig post

I finally have red hair! It should have been mine at birth (it always skips a generation), instead I got stuck with black. I can change that whenever I want now.
This hat will fit most teen/adult women. This hat is slightly slouchy so you can tuck your hair up into it. If you crochet loosely you may want to not do all the increase rounds.

Little Leek

Another veggie from our garden. I hope we can harvest ours soon.
Leeks are a favorite of mine, I love to make leek and potato soup.

No Holes Barred Scarf

This pattern is wonderfully flexible. It will work with nearly any sized hook and yarn.
I would love to see this scarf made with a heavy fishmen's wool or a thin fingerling yarn. 
Want a wide scarf? Try upping the chain to 41.

Beats me why I wanted to make a beet.
I don't even like them.

My sister in law lives in Hawaii and is always posting wonderful pictures.
I was incredibly jealous when she posted a big pot full of laulau ready to be steamed.

Is the Hot Pepper pattern not hot enough?
A habanero may not be as hot as a ghost chili but it is plenty spicy.

Daddy Octopus

I used to do art trades for this size octopus. They were very popular with parents of toddlers.
I like to make sets of three, one of each size. Octos are great because they can appeal to boys or girls depending on what colors you choose.
