Cutie Mark Beanie's

So, Sprout LOVES My Little Pony, (and Princesses and Super Hero's) but when I was looking for new hat patterns to make I stumbled upon Playin Hooky Designs. Yes I've talked of this shop before on the "Along Came a Spider" post. 
The MLP Cutie Mark beanies are part of Liz's (Owner of Playin' Hooky Designs) "Graph Beanie". She has a main Beanie pattern "The Graph Beanie" and then your choice of 1 graph when you buy the main pattern (you'll need to buy the main pattern or the graphs are pretty much useless to you). So when I purchased the main pattern I got a Ninja Turtle graph (Post coming soon) and then I purchased the MLP Cutie mark graph bundle.
I was happy and so were both my kids. I was able to get something they both liked and it didn't cost me a fortune to do it, GO me! :D . 

On with the Cutie Mark Parade!....

Along came a Spider Hat

So I was asked by my mother-in-law's co-worker if I could make a spider type of hat for her son cause he really likes spiders. I was like "Sure!"..... then realizing I've only seen knitted spider-man hats and the patterns were pretty advanced for me to work with.
So as I was in search of an crochet pattern that would still look great, I stumbled upon Playin' Hooky Designs . Liz (creator of Playin' Hooky) had an absolutely adorable pattern called "Along Came A Spider". It was a bit different, the way it was designed, so unique I just had to try it out.

Here's the end result:






Bug thought it was pretty cool too. I may be making another in the near future for him as well.

Dirk the Dragon

He's finally finished!, I am pleased to introduce you to Dirk, Dirk the Dragon.



He's the first doll I've made from the Lalylala patterns that I purchased a few weeks ago. I loved the pattern. pretty easy to follow and it was great that there were tons of photos to help me through. (Huge visual learner here).


He even has cute little wings, just adorable. I used Caron Simply Soft yarn in Pagoda (main color), White, and vinyard (his scarf) and crocheted him up using a stainless steel hook size 0.


I can't wait to work up the other patterns I purchased. Stay tuned for more cuteness to come.
