I am on a serious blue kick lately so I am really loving the way the colors stripe in this hat.

I used a bulky weight yarn to crochet this beanie, so it really did take me less than an hour to make. I've got these things down so I can crank them out in about 45 minutes at this point. Pretty awesome, right?

FO Friday: Striped Baby Stocking Hat

Finished Object Friday

A few days ago all I had was this scribbled plan in my design binder. After one false start, a bit of frogging and lots of hemming and hawing and staring at the inspiration picture, I finally finished my baby beanie!

Click through the slide show below to see the process of my beanie creation. :)

I really hope this ends up fitting like it's supposed to! I'm not completely sure it's the right size for a newborn. But, I'm going to give it to my photographer friend and she can let me know if it needs to be bigger or smaller. Sometimes I get it right the first time, but not always!

It's so much fun to create a new design and then crochet it and bring it to life. :) Creative satisfaction!

What about you? What have you finished crocheting lately? Post links to pics so I can see! :)
