Getting distracted

I have SO much to do. A quilt to finish for a quilt show. Getting ready for Houston. Finding/making a Halloween costume. Cleaning the house.  Doing the dishes. Redoing the guest bathroom.

Instead, I make hats.
I was at the store looking for blunt-nosed scissors to take on the plane, but got distracted by this lovely cotton yarn.
And had to make something.

Crochet Beanie
Crochet Flower
(It's a baby hat.  Size 12-18 months.)


  1. So cute!!!

    Sigh... I need to learn to crochet.

  2. OK - now I am distracted! Pattern from??

  3. FYI-- blunt or sharp makes no difference on the plane. Just blade length. I took my pointy gingher embroidery scissors on a plane this summer with no trouble. Just make sure your blade is less than 4" long.

  4. This is so cute. Where can I get a pattern? I have to make a few baby hats for Christmas and have some patterns I am thinking of using, but this one is so cute. Would love to try it out.

  5. Me too...have a darling baby that NEEDS that hat. Was the pattern online????

  6. That is so beautiful and sweet.

  7. What an adorable hat! Love knitting and crochet projects for distractions!

  8. Such a sweet little hat :)

    The word Houston popped right out and reminded me of the day we got to enjoy hanging together at the Houston show a couple of years ago!

  9. This is absolutely adorable. Beautiful job.
