Justin's Hat is Finished


Justin's hat is finished!  When I asked him what color he would like, he told me his favorite color is purple or rainbow.  I didn't know rainbow was a color, but I don't argue with my grandchildren!  The yarn store didn't have any purple yarn I like, and I had a rainbow-ish pompom, so rainbow it is!  I hope he like it!

Only one more hat to make for the grandchildren, Owen's hat is next!

The End of an Era

Yesterday, at 3 pm, the doors of Welcome Stitchery closed for the last time in Crystal Lake.  The shop has been sold and the new owner is moving it to Blue Earth MN (home of the jolly green giant).  I will miss this happy place. 

 We will miss Lee and Monica also!  I will look for another framer, and another shop to shop at.

Lee and Monica deserve to retire, and they will be missed!

Pom Poms added to the hats

You might remember that about a year ago, I decided to try and crochet again.  I took a class and made a hat.  The hat was too small for me.  But Peter liked it, so I had planned to gift it to him but that lousy pompom just wouldn't attach itself.  

Since last Saturday was Peter's birthday, it sat down and attached the pompom before heading over to his house for a birthday hug and kiss, and wouldn't you know it, it took all of 5 minutes!  Don't know what took me so long to get it done, but he was thrilled with his new hat.

While I had the yarn needle out, I also attached the pompom to the pink hat that I crochet at the beginning of the COVID stay at home order.  Since my favorite girl, Natalie, loves pink, I thought she might like to have it.  She loved it!  

So now I have two very happy grandchildren....and three sad ones who don't have a hat made by Oma.....

Guess what Oma did today?  I went shopping for yarn for 3 more hats.....

First Finish of 2021

This is the Blue Ornament that was a favor at our ANG Chapter Holiday Party.  It took way longer to stitch than it should have, but it is now done.  It was designed by Marguerite Harrington.
