Some Mo' Stuff

I've been away for a while again, I seem to keep falling out of making things and getting distracted by daily life. It's kind of bummed me out a little. Anyways, I've picked up my needles and hooks again after a short dry spell and I've started stitching away. Part of my inspiration are new members to my family, since my cousin gave birth a little while ago. I've made her daughter a little scarf and hat and I'm working on a baby blanket for her now. She's small and cute, so you just have to spoil her a little bit, right? Also, we've adopted a puppy from a shelter. She's small and cute and a little mischievous, but her puppy-face lets her get away with just about anything.

So the latest things I've made were a little hat for the baby and a long scarf for whomever. The hat's just a basic pattern that everyone knows, but I made it a little short so I added some rows of single crochet the the bottom to give it a little more length, and then I added a flower to make it a little cuter. The scarf's just kind of whatever, just some chunky yarn and fringe. But I did get Madi to pose a little bit with it one. Such a cute little girl. Haha.

As a little blurb: I'm kind of thinking about getting into some 'yarn-bombing.' Don't worry, I'm not going to ignite some alpaca and throw it at unsuspecting victims, I don't have the money to waste perfectly good alpaca like that... What I want to do is to make little knick-knacks and hide them around town, or cover poles or trees or whatever with them. Anyways, it's just an idea write now, but it has the possibility for fun.

I'd let that puppy get away with anything, too.

And bomb away!!!

Absolutely adorable. And I don't mean the hat and the scarf. (Nice work, though, too.)
