Some FO's for you - with a little help from my model

I don't seem to get a chance to take many pictures of my wip's! (work in progress), but anything's better than nothing right... so here's some pictures of the hats I've finished off lately. I've shown a couple of these in the previous post, but this time I got Kristen to model them for me, along with the matching scarfs that I simply cut from fleece.

The first hat is the one I made for Kristen based on Susie's pattern from Itty Bitty Hats, with the fleece topper.

The colors nicely match the new coat I bought for her for this winter.
This is the pattern for the candy cane hat from IBH's but I did 4 row stripes instead of 2 row, and of course different colors.
This hat is the same one in the previous post, but notice the little bear in matching colors and matching fleece scarf (from a pattern I found on the web). I will try to make a pink one for Kristen next, she just didn't want to put this little guy down!

See what I mean! Here's she's modeling the snowman hat from Itty Bitty Hats.
And here's two more shots of Mr. Snowman.

And that's all for today folks!

Oh boy, am I glad I popped over. What a beautiful little girl and she looks great in those wonderful hats. Great work. The snowman's nose looks perfect.
On to amazon, one time I pre-ordered a book I was very anxious to receive. I waited and waited after the release date came and went. The book was in all of the stores already and I was still waiting. I contacted the customer service via email and told them about this situation and how disappointed I was. They sent me the book right away and gave me a ten dollar credit to spend on amazon. I'm thinking maybe you should do the same. As an author I hate to tell someone not to pre-order but because of my bad experience I always wait for the book to come out, then I order. Thanks for always taking the time to share and comment on my blog. I always look forward to hearing from you.

So cute! Love the way the leopard topper hat looks on her and with her coat - just perfect! Love the stripped stocking hat too - that's one of my favorites of Susie's!

Nice work thanks for sharing!

I just love your bear, hat, scarf and best of all that cute model! Where did the pattern for the bear come from? It is just perfect.
