NOT a doily

"Shockcity"!!!  I can crochet something other than a doily, runner, etc!   Here's some preemie hats I recently made for a local hospital.  I have made a total of 14 thus far.  I like the way they are turning out.  Found the pattern HERE.   I found they make up really quickly.  This is one of the side projects the group I joined at the local library does, while teaching others to crochet and knit.

Aren't they just TOO cute!

Have a blessed day!

Rhoda

I'd like to introduce you to RHODA, a designed by Grace Fearon.  Made with ThreadArt size 10 and color #28, using a #5 hook.  Measures 14.5 inches.  You can purchase the pattern on her website, Emilyandthe.com.





ThreadArt crochet thread is made of 100% mercerized cotton.  There are 175 yds to the ball, so it's small compared to some other brands.  Their color selection is limited, but it is a wonderful classic crochet thread to work with in size 10.  I purchased some several years ago off the web and decided to use up what I have remaining.  I'm sure you can find to where to buy it with a google search.
Thanks for stopping by.  I'm off to my weekly group at the local library on Thursday afternoons where those that don't know how to knit or crochet can learn from others.  Right now I'm working with a lady to teach her the techniques of thread crochet.
