Hats & scarves are finished!

Finally - here is the happy result of a month and a half of knitting and crocheting kids' and teens' hats and scarves:  
As much as I enjoyed making all the above, it's very good to be finished.  

In the end, there were two or three hats that didn't make the grade, but those provided some good learning experiences and that counts for something.

Now they all just need size labels attached and to be dropped off where they will, hopefully, eventually find noggins and necks to keep warm this winter.  

I'm seriously liking those scarves with the furry pom poms - I may have to make one for myself this winter.  😉

  2. You did a wonderful job on making some noggins and necks warm this winter. I agree about the scarves with the pom poms on the ends. They are super cute.

  4. The top yellow hat with furry pom pom is cute...how did you make it? Was it a special yarn for the pom pom or did you brush it??

    1. Thanks, Martha. It's made with faux fur (bought half a yard of it at JoAnns' last year). There are lots of video tutorials online on how to make them, but they're super easy, if a tad messy. You just cut a circle (I used different size bowls to trace around on the back of the fabric to get the size pom I wanted). Cut it out and pulled any loose fur away from the circle. Using crochet thread (doubled), I sewed a running stitch around around the circle (about 1/8-1/4 inch in). Pulled the ends of the thread to close it up into a pouch - stuffing with a small amount of fiberfill before closing and tying a knot to close it. I then used the hanging crochet thread to stitch these onto the scarves and hat. I used a button to attach the one to the hat, but I'm going to try washing one of these and see how it holds up. Since it's synthetic fur, I would expect it to come through the washing machine just fine. We'll see. There's a post idea for next week! :)

  7. Really nice work! And yes, you should most definitely make a PomPom scarf for yourself as well!

    1. No, you wouldn't want to pay me what I'd have to charge, and charging for my crochet would take away a lot of the enjoyment. Thank you for your comments, friend. You are a great encourager.
