This is a pattern that I have had available for several months and I have decided to offer it for free. With Easter and spring coming up before you know it, these make great photo props for the kiddos. The pattern is sized for 0-3 Months and 3-6 Months.

These hats are so simple to make! The download is available from my Ravelry store. Just click the download link and you can download the PDF file (which includes all pattern photos). Or, read the pattern below.

Enjoy!

Fingerless Gloves for Texting and Typing

I love these fingerless gloves. They keep your fingers free for using your smart phone! Of course there are other reasons to keep your fingers accessible too...........

I have currently made them in two different styles. The first is a lacey looking glove with a scalloped edge along the top. These look very girly/feminine and would go great with some of my matching boot cuffs!
Currently available in my Etsy Shop.

The second style is ribbed with a small scalloped edge at the top. These are very thick and warm.
Currently available in my Etsy shop.

Fingerless Gloves
Ribbed Fingerless Gloves
Either style would make great wintertime gifts for yourself or someone else! Both of these can be made in several different colors and are available in my Etsy shop right now.

Happy Winter!

Football Beanies for Babies - Texas Team Colors!

I love these little crochet beanie hats for babies. I am making them in Texas team colors. Of course I have the traditional brown. There is also a pink version for baby girls. They are sized to fit Newborn - 3 Months.

As far as Texas teams, there is Maroon for Texas A&M Aggies, Burnt Orange for UT Longhorns, and Silver and Blue for the Dallas Cowboys....... Can you tell I am a Texas girl??

I will make other colors if requested. These hats stitch up pretty quickly, so it shouldn't take more than about 3 days for me to have it made and shipped out.

Football fans can order these hats and deck their baby out in favorite team colors. They can be purchased now in my Etsy shop. I also have other hats available. Check out my shop!

I am hoping to write a pattern for this beanie hat. Things have been pretty busy, especially at the holidays. There has not been much time to write. It's on my list, along with several other patterns!

Stay warm my friends!
