The Weekly Hook-up

Here is this past week in my little world of hooks and yarn!

I didn't get quite as many things made since it was Thanksgiving. I decided to take a couple of days off from customer orders to relax with family. Here are the customer orders I were able to get done:

I also finished up these newborn chunky hats a few minutes ago. The white yarn has a bit of sparkle in them as do the snowflake buttons. They are for sale on my Facebook page.

On to the last project that I want to share from this week. First, a little bit of history on why I made it. I am a Carolina girl...I was born and raised in Charleston, SC. When you are from South Carolina or live there, you have this one day out of the year when you are one of two things: a Tiger or a Gamecock. Win or lose, I am proud to be a Clemson Tiger fan! Each year the two teams face off in football for what has been dubbed the "Palmetto Bowl". This year I decided to make a little something for my smallest Tiger. Here he is in his custom crocheted football helmet. If you are interested in ordering, you can visit my Facebook page and just shoot me a message on there. I am not limited to Clemson. I can make them in different sizes and team colors. I can also add the paw, a fleur-de-lis for you Saints fans, the skull & crossbones for all of you Pirate fans, or the "G" for you GA Bulldog and Green Bay fans. If you need something other than those, I will do my best to see what I can come up with.
So that is my week in crochet. I am hoping to get about twice as much done this week. I will leave you this week with pictures of my little Tiger.

The Weekly Hook-up

It's that time again...time for another edition of The Weekly Hook-up. I've been pretty busy lately trying to get projects made for the upcoming holidays. Here's a quick look at what I've been up to.

I tested this Chunky Monkey hat pattern for Bizee B Boutique:

Normally I would have sold this, but I decided that this should be MY little monkey's winter hat this season.

I love how cute this train hat turned out that I made for a customer:

The pattern for this hat can be found on the bubnut Etsy page.

I was able to get all of these Christmas hats made in one night. .
I love this pattern from Inner Hooker. It uses chunky yarn so it works up extremely quickly. Speaking of Inner Hooker, you should head over and check out her blog, The Oxford Family. If you're interested in any of these Christmas hats, there are still a few left on my Kristin's Kreations Facebook page.

I couldn't get by Thanksgiving without trying out one of these really cute turkey earflap hats from Crochet Creations by Steph.

I was also able to test a couple of headband patterns for The Perfect Knot:
. All of these are for sale on my Facebook page, too.

And here are some more customer orders from the week:

So that's what I've been up to this week in my little world of hooks 'n yarn. I will leave you with a picture of my oldest and youngest "turkeys". I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

The Weekly Hook-up (from the last 6 weeks)

So I haven't posted anything for The Weekly Hook-up for over a month now. So here's a quick pictorial run-down of everything I've made:

I've made lots of these pumpkin hats in different sizes. I still have a few for sale on my Facebook.

Here's a scarf I tested for Creations by Valorie. I used a silk/bamboo blend yarn for mine and just love the way it feels.

I've had even more requests for these purple/gold pirate hats so I thought I would do a mini "photo shoot" with my littlest guy wearing his. Check out his Pirate spirit!

Here's a few items that I made using some fall-colored handspun yarn from Hogg Wild Fibers

These next few projects were made using a bundle of candy corn handspun yarn from Monique's Craft Corner

I found some soy/wool blend yarn laying around and loved the colors so I used it to make this cowl by Creations by Valorie

Here are some chunky Santa hats that I think are just adorable. I had a friend ask me to make one so I decided to do some extra ones for my Etsy. They have not made it to the Etsy shop yet but I am hoping to get them posted this week. The pattern for these is available at JTEasyCrochet

Here's a scarf that I recently tested for The Perfect Knot. It's pretty short so I think that I may just sell it as a child's scarf.

These are some hats I made from some Halloween yarn from Hogg Wild Fibers

And here are a few customer orders:
