FO Zooey Hat

This is the first ever item Zooey has requested.  I think it is a bit big for her - but she loves it.

Project Details:
Started September 20th and finished on the 22nd.  Size 11 needles holding three strands of yarn together.  If I were to make this again I might adjust needle size and hold 4 strands together.

In other news I've decided to stop working on the cross stitch for the rest of this year.  I need a break and want to spend more time knitting!

FO Latch Hook Pillow


I have never latch hooked before and find it fun and fast.  This kit was from 1987 and I paid $4 on eBay for it.  I started on July first and finished on July 12.  I'm sure I'll be hooking more!!

FO Vintage Dress

This was a simple McCall's pattern that has lots of variations.  I got the fabric from a garage sale and it was marked 1969.  I washed it and then cut it out.  There is zero give to the material - next time I make this dress I will use a more elastic material.  Also the sleeve instructions sort of suckered.  But otherwise it only took me a few hours and came out cute!
