Giraffe & Snowman

Good Afternoon! I've been busy crocheting lately. That Flowers in the Snow blanket is coming along quite nicely. Granted, it has been put aside for the moment in the name of gifts to be created, but really, it is quite beautiful!

I made this adorable little giraffe awhile back. There was no real reason other than I thought the pattern was cute and I wanted to use up scraps (the blanket wasn't using them up as fast as I thought). Unsurprisingly this did not use up many of the scraps either. Still, I love this guy and am totally saving him for a future child. This one won't be a gift.
It already looks at home on the couch, with the fleece blanket, quilt, and afghan! I am a woman of many talents (although the quilt was totally made for me, I am not that talented)!

Lastly, I whipped up this snowman ornament in an afternoon. It was a CED project (November 30) and became a gift for a fire wife sister. Fun. Right?

So I bought this adorable headband / ear muff thing from my friend the other day. I wasn't sure I could pull it off, but I was told that I can. You can't see it in the picture, but it has a fun crocheted flower stitched onto it. Yay! Then I remembered that I had some crochet headbands to make from my challenge. That's why I have been on a crochet headband kick lately...

Ten minutes made this adorable gray headband (Elizabeth), and I sewed elastic to the back so I didn't have to tie it. Perfect!! A bunch of friends fell in love with it, so I made more to give away!

The next headband was Laura's headband. I was going to do the elastic on this as well, but ended up using the crochet chain back. To see it worn a different way, check the original post.
Last up is this ear muff from Ashton. This is the second pattern that she gave me to review. I love how it turned out, even if the edges curl in a bit when I'm not wearing it (that may also be because I made it a little differently than her pattern). You should definitely check out more of her patterns on her Website, Etsy, or Ravelry. The baby booty patterns that she has are just adorable!

I think what I love most about this hat is how versatile it is. First off, it's reversible, so that already gives you two options. It's also designed to look knit, which I think is fun. I have a pink flower to put on it, but haven't attached it to a clip yet, and don't want to sew it on (because that ruins the reversibleness! duh)!
