I have been battling a huge headache this week, and have not been able to get done a lot of what I needed to get done. So last night when it came time for the Friday Night Sew In I wasn't sure if I should take some time to sew or if I should try to catch up on some work. I decided that crocheting sounded so much better than working!
I feel like I got a lot done even with my headache.
I managed to crochet two baby hats for my new neice, an iPod holder for my daughter, and a dish cloth for me! Yay!

I am in desperate need of new dish cloths. All of the ones that I crocheted a year or so ago are starting to show their wear and I figure that if I sew a couple of new ones each week I can replace them easily.
I used this Nubbie Scrubbies pattern from Simple Sweet Yarns. It was the first time I had used this pattern, and it was also the first time I had made a dish cloth with the "nubs" on it for scrubbing. I usually just make basic square dish cloths. So I will see how well I like it before making too many more.
I made this cute little flapper girl hat using this pattern from Anna Virginia Fashion. It was incredibly easy to make, but I do still have to add the ribbon around the bottom. My sister is not a girly-girl and absolutely despises pink so I am trying to stay away from the pinks for my niece. I thought this cute lime green color would look girly but not be too over the top girly for my sister.
And although my sister says "no pink" you just can't sew for a little girl and not make something pink so I did make this cute little beanie for my niece using pink. I couldn't help myself. I love how it turned out, it is soo much cuter in person. I used this Shell Stitch Beanie pattern from The Dainty Daisy.
I made this iPod cozy up for my daughter without a pattern and I am not 100% happy with it. I think I am going to give it another try. Although I don't think it turned out completely horrible considering it is the first one I have ever made, and I did it without a pattern. I was going to make her a purple one but loved the look of the pink and green together when I was crocheting the hats.
