Hats, Scarves, and Everything in Between

I've been working on many different things lately.  My 10 year old son hounded me until I finally made him a Mohawk Earflap Hat.
I finished it the day before his birthday.  He's such a ham...lol.  When he wore it to school the principle asked him if I could make one to be raffled off for the Boy's only tailgate party, of course I said yes, it was an honor:)  Then one of my husbands friend saw it and asked if I could make one in Pittsburgh Steeler colors.
I've been asked by two other people to make them in Ohio State Colors.  It's still a little weird for me to have people ask.  I've always just made things and gave them away now I actually have people asking if they can order.

I've also been working on some Christmas orders for the Kitty tote bags.  The smaller version of the large tote has turned out to be the perfect size for little girls.  Here is one that I did.  I didn't get pics of it after it was totally complete with lining and kitty applique but it turned out better than I thought it would and I actually love it better without the applique.
I'm now finishing up on two in purple tones and another pink.  I'll make sure I post photos.

My daughter is in her senior year of Marching Band and has a highlight concert this Friday, then this Saturday my son has his championship pony league football game.  It's going to be cold so I wanted to make a scarf and put music notes on one side and a football applique and my sons football number on the other side.  This is the first scarf I came up with.  It is a simple half double crochet in back loops only making it have ridges.  When I finished it I really wasn't happy with it because of the length and the blue was a shade to dark.  But it's a nice scarf all the same and has already been claimed by my oldest daughter...lol.
I'm still working on the appliques for the second scarf and will post pics when finished.

Thanks for listening to me ramble on and checking out my projects.

Until next time, Happy Crocheting:)
