I made this hat for my nephew, Brodie a few months ago. He loved it and it looked so cute on him, but I may be a little partial. It was super easy to make. I got the pattern from http://www.totsandbottoms.blogspot/

My new obsession is crochet earrings. I dont know why, maybe it's the inner hippie in me? My mother in law requested that I make her some hot pink earrings and some "Harley" earrings. Here they are finished and I will have to get a pic of her wearing them to share later.
These earrings were some that I stumbled upon online. Apprently a girl on this seasons American Idol wore them. I cant wait to wear them to work tomorrow. I am sure my co workers will give me some feedback, good and bad!

So, as everyone knows, I started crocheting scarves when I was learning. Everyone got them for Christmas this year. I have advanced in my scarf making abilities since then. I found really cool patterns for these scarves and I think they turned out pretty cool.

Here is what I worked on this weekend. I think I developed carpal tunnel syndrome but I suppose it is worth it. Overall I think this turned out ok. It is very tedious and hard to keep it neet. I will try another one but thought that I would show you my first try. Excuse the ratty looking threads sticking out and the clasp looking funny....
