Hats for Everyone!

I've been crocheting hats like crazy lately.
They are pretty fun, cute and something the kids will use.
I like that!

 Ezie is wearing an owl hat.  I am suppose to make him a purple one today,
because purple is "the color".
I bought this pattern from www.crazysockscrochet.com/

 My grandson Owen is wearing this cute hat.  He loves the braids, even though his Daddy thinks they look to girlish.  Come on dad...they're entertainment!  Owen's head is a little bigger than I thought though so I think I need to come down a little further on the forehead with this hat.  I got the free pattern on www.ravelry.com/

 Jace wanted an one eyed-monster hat.  I just made the pattern up for this one.  He puts the ear flaps up while he's playing in the house and it looks like the monster has ears.

I made some newborn and preemie pumpkin hats and Mallory wanted one for herself.  She is my little pumpkin!  I used the free pattern from www.ravelry.com/ that www.crazysockscrochet.com/ posted.  I just enlarged the pattern for an adult size.  I'll give you the directions for increasing if anyone wants them.

So, I'm off to crochet some more hats.
Have a great day!!

Your hats look wonderful! I love crazysocks hat patterns. I have bought a few myself. Haven't made anything yet but that's OK.

Jace's one eyed monster hat looks great! You did a great job on the eye.

I'm trying to contact someone called Mary who seems to be owner of the folowing blogs:
Quilting block swaps Australia
Quilt Block Swap
Pins and Needles
Block Swap Adventure

Mary put her name down for Hookin' With laalaa's Advent Swap: http://hookinwithlaalaa.blogspot.com/2011/09/well-its-that-time-again-when-we-all.html

I have been paired with Mary and would like to know if she is still interested in doing this swap? I have left a comment and sent an email via one of the above blogs, but as this profile for Mary has no email directly attached it is hard to contact her - hence me leaving this comment here

I was looking forward to this swap and unless Mary is still willing to swap it looks like I am going to be left out of the fun

So please could Mary contact me via my email which can be found on my profile

Many thanks
