Pom-Pom Hats


I knit some hats for my older granddaughters lately that have pom-poms.  I don't make good pom-poms myself and heard about these furry pom-poms, so I started searching.  I found small ones for the ends of the ties at Hobby Lobby but the large ones?  I had to go online for those.  
I am also using up yarn from my large stash.  For this hat I had to put two colors together to make sure I had enough.




This hat is a small in the adult sizes.  I had to make it a little smaller and she still has plenty of growing room.


With this hat, there is no growing room.  It is made from a chenille yarn that I had left from a rug that I had made.  I had enough of this to make 2 hats.

Knitting for Babies




Here are a few pictures of the things I've knitted showing the babies wearing them.  These were all past posts but the grandbabies have grown into some of these outfits. And grown out of  them also.






The cousins enjoying each other. Maybe?



You are looking at the blanket on this one.






This is not a grandchild,but he is the cousin of one of them. I made this sweater originally for Asher to go with the above outfit, but it the sweater and hat were too small for him from the start.  So Jason got to have it.







These are a couple of sweaters that I made for Natalie's older sisters a few years ago.
Now she gets the chance to wear them.



You can go to my Ravelry page to see all of these projects and find out more details on them.

Tea and Scones

This is a quilt I'm making from a picture I pinned.  The pin does not go to an original source, so this is totally a copy that I'm doing.
This is the beginning of the applique center.  I pieced peachy and white blocks together to keep it a light background.


 My granddaughters saw it before any applique was done on it and wanted me to make it for them.  I told them it wasn't even pretty yet.  They get excited about any quilt or knitting that I do.


I am doing needleturn applique, but using freezer paper to iron down the edges.  It makes a smooth applique look.  This center flower will have petals on top, so I'm not appliqueing the valleys, only the hills.


I am really liking the look so far.  I still have to pick out another color, I'm not sure what.

Cheryl's Quilt


This is a small round quilt.  I'm not sure how she's using it.  I couldn't pin it onto my machine, so I pinned it to the backing and batting.  And then quilted it.
