Crochet Palooza II

Crochet Hat Palooza

In a previous post I wrote that I followed Hectanooga1's video on YouTube to crochet this hat. After I crochet the first hat ( orange), the hat grew by two inches.  I revised Hectanooga's  instructions and I am loving the results.

Vogue Patterns- Spring 2015

Good Morning
I enjoy Toy's fashion and pattern reviews. She has a great eye for details and because of her reviews I am looking at patterns with keener eyes.Vogue Patterns Spring 2015 was posted on her blog today. Please check the post out. After reading her post and writing my comment, I decided to post my comment here.
Vogue 1442, love the design, as for fabric a very soft drapery knit is perfect. For a very curvy girl this could be a tricky one, proceed with caution.
9075- Wide leg jumpsuit, this is an old pattern that came out of the archives. This is very easy to recreate with an existing pattern. I will not buy this pattern; however I will add the image to my inspiration book.

My first Project for 2015

Hello

This is my first project for 2015
 . My last crochet project was the crochet along that  Sheila and I did in 2013. I crocheted three skirts and as I worked on the fourth skirt I developed a severe allergy to the acrylic yarn. Sadly I gave the skirts away. Recently Sheila has been on a crochet extravaganza and I desire to crochet began to take hold. So I went to the craft store and I found cotton thread with 15% polyester. My first attempt to knit a hat was not successful because I choose the wrong thread for the pattern. This was my second attempt. I love it especially since I have a better understanding of what the thread can do.  The pattern is from one of my favorite You tuber Hectanooga1.  I choose orange because my coat is black and I wanted to add a pop of color and what better way to achieve that.
