Minion hat

My first attempt at a Minion hat.  The pattern is a freebie on Ravelry by Lauren Irving. The knitting directions are very well written....and I'm sure the crochet portion is too....if you know how to crochet...which I don't.  :)  I know little to nothing about crocheting so I fudged all the SC, HDC, DC, TC.....I winged it.  I probably could have gone on youtube and watched how to do all those things correctly but I figured as long as I was consistent and the eyeball lay flat, I'd be good to go.  Really fun to make.

Irish Chain Quilt

A friend of mine surprised me the other day by giving me this quilt. She had originally made it for a relative....then decided he was not worthy but I was :) Sweeeeet :)  She had quilted it and just hadn't gotten around to doing the binding. 

As it turned out, I had the same light colored shamrock fabric in my stash of St. Paddy's Day fabrics :)  It was meant to be.   Gave this away to a friend to give to her dad.  

And you know who thinks it's just for her :)

Super Easy.  Got two of these done in about 4 hours.  Getting a head start on the charity knitting project our knitting guidl is doing next year.  Have two more to of them has a soccer ball topper and the other a monkey :)   So far the dog one is my favorite.
