My progress on my first Crazy Toe and Heel sock. I'm using Bernat Sox yarn, Red (#0705) Price: $1.27, per 50 gr skein. A very good price and it is knitting up nice. Off to change the color to white. My goal is to have the toe, heel and ribbing red and the rest of the sock white.

These are the mini hats I've been knitting. I'm going to make more using different colors. They don't take no time to knit up. Aren't they so cute?

The view of the socks from the back.

Here is a pic of the heel. My son wouldn't stay still for the pictures. It's a short row heel using the garter stitch.

Here are the finished socks. This is one project I'm glad I'm finished with. I made these socks on 2 circulars following the 2 socks on 2 circulars by Nenah Galati. I used Cervinia Cervinia Calzetteria yarn from Have no clue what my next product will be.

My first try at two socks on two circulars. I'm using the video by Nenah Galati. The heel of the sock on the left is flipped noticed once I posted, but they both are the same size. I love working on circulars. I doubt if I go back to dpns (double pointed needles). For the socks I'm using Cervinia Calzetteria sock yarn from the color is charcoal heather grey. I'm so proud of my success. I should be finished very soon.

I really enjoy crocheting this tam (beret) for myself. Was a very short project. As you can see on my blog I like doing short projects. Things I can do in less than a week.

I wanted to crochet for a bit. Here is a weekend project. Could have been one day, but I wanted to go out and enjoy the beautiful weather.

Here is the hat I made for my son. I like the swirl portion.

This is the back of the doll.

My first crochet doll. I made in in about 3 days. I don't know exactly how many hours maybe 8 - 10. This is a redskin dollbaby for my aunt. She loves her redskins.
