Hat, scarf and doggie sweater DONE

I finally got Wendie's (DD13) Griffyndor scarf and hat DONE last night! I made Daizy (our Boston Terrier) a sweater today. She is a short haired breed (like a pug) and with the weather going to be COLD, WINDY and SNOWY for Thanksgiving Day (2 feet or more!!!!) Daizy really needed something to keep her warm while she is outside.

Hat was done using this pattern: Cone Hat for all Sizes (The longer version)
Scarf inspired by this site: atypically.knit Hogwarts scarves
Doggie Sweater found here (with a few alterations): Jack's Sweater and I added a crocheted Daisy to the back shoulders of the sweater using the instructions here: Crocheted Daisy Apron scroll down to the bottom of the page.

I will add pictures as soon as I get some taken :)

Hat and scarf

Yesterday I made matching UBW Hats for my 3 year old daughter and my SMIL (StepMother In Law aka My Husband's Step-Mother) Here is the one I made for my daughter:

It's not very UGLY is it???? But it IS warm!

Tomorrow is my SMIL's Birthday. We hare having a Surprise party for her today. I made her hat yesterday while she was here. She wore it home and I said, "You need a scarf to match". Here is the scarf I worked on last night and finished this morning:

Hmmm doesn't look much like a scarf does it? Well take a look at my sweetie WEARING the set:

Isn't she cute???

I made the scarf following the instructions found HERE for "woolly wormhead's ripping yarns" Crocheted Version of the curly whirly scarf.
I used 2 strands held together to create each. The yarn I used was "Bernat Coordinates Sprots Weight" color 1010 115. It's a white baby yarn with one strand of ummmm shiny-ness. The second yarn was Worsted Weight "Red Heart Baby Teri" color 9588 Lavender. Tlak about wearing a cloud! This stuff is super soft! 2 strands of a lavender color and one stradn that's furry. I wish the pictures could show just how nice they really look done together!!!
I will TRY to get a pic of my camera-shy SMIL wearing her new set....

You love to be comfortable and warm from your

Your Hidden Power Is
Light Angel

You have a happy yet quiet soul. You keep
somethings to yourself and like to be alone but
don't mind showing your bright side to your
friends. You find that hell is the worst of all
since you are an Angel from Heaven. You use your
powers for the forces of good to protect Gods

Hair Color:Blonde that flows to the floor

Quote:In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of lullabye
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me

I am a Happy Hooker

Crochet Hook-er that is! My Mom taught me how to crochet about 15 years ago but I never made anything bigger than a pot-holder. I have just recently picked up a crochet hook again and I am LOVING it!!! I have so mny projects I want to make! Right now I am working on a Griffyndor scarf for my 13 year old daughter. She also wants a hat and hand warmers/fingerless gloves to match. The scarf is about half done.
