Spring Fling

I keep trying real hard to coax Spring weather
into my little corner of the world.
Everything I make looks like I'm on a 
definite Spring Fling!
When I saw this sweet crocheted amigurumi hat pincushion
in the latest Simply Crochet issue I knew I would have to 
give it a go :-)
Isn't it too darn cute?!!
Even its backside is pretty.
And it's nice for those of us who play with 
yarn because it holds anything
from regular pins and needles
to darning needles.
Of course I have also had my hands in a few 
more Springtime baby hats...
First a Flop Eared Bunny of my own design.
Flaunting a fluffy tail :-)
And a precious wee lamb hat.
I tweaked the original pattern here and there but only a very little.
The pattern was written by 
I actually purchased it from Craftsy.

I have been like a chicken
{notice I didn't say "Spring chicken"}
without a head lately
with so much yarn flying left and right.
I've been working at stocking my Etsy Shop,
taking care of some local orders,
teaching more knitting and crochet lessons 
than I usually do this time of year
getting ready for 
As it turns out 
of my daughters are expecting them!!! 
Woo ~ Hoo !!! :-)))
Also, my sister is going to be Grammy for the first time.
In May I will have a grandson, 
in August my sister will have a grandbaby
in September I will have another grandbaby.
We are still waiting to find out what the other two babes are.
I will get back to you as soon as I know.
After this never ending Winter
it's sure going to be a 
glorious Spring & Summer around here :-)))

  7. Hi Danette,
    Love the baby hats, cute ears! I always worry when one
    person tells me they're expecting....suddenly heaps of
    people are expecting!! lol. Great to knit or crochet for
    friends and family though.
    Cheers, Anita.

    1. You are so right Anita!!!
      It really must be in the water or the air!
      I sure was surprised when BOTH of my girls came up that way at the same time. One was trying we knew, but the other was pursuing adoption and Voila'!
