Happy New Year to all.  Hope you all had a safe and fun New years.  We were planning on staying home for New Years but around 11 pm my son was bored and wanted to head to a bar.  We took him to our local bar and stayed thru the New Year.  Man I must be getting old but I was tired before we left and just got tireder (don't know if thats a word) while we were there.  Floyd wanted to stay till closing but us old folks left him there and went home.  He had a good time though and got home safely so all was well in the world.  I spent New Years Eve prior to our going out making this cloche.  I got the pattern from it is a free pattern and looks really good.  I found the flower pattern on another site unforunately I don't remember what it is but will post it later if I remember.  My daughter Brittany is my model once again and she actually said she liked it.  That is an amazing thing when your 13 year old actually likes something you made.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comThis was my project for New Years day.  I needed to keep my hands busy till I can get to the yarn shop tomorrow to get some thread.  I have a doily I will be testing for Kathy and need to get the specific color rather than just a color I have in my stash.  This is a newsboy hat that I have been wanting to make for quite a while.  Britt says its cool but nothing she would wear.

Thats it for now.

I love those hats, Mary! And tell your daughter that even though she may not wear the newsboy style hat normally, that I think it looks really good on her. The cloche style looks good on her, too. But so does the newsboy.

I'm going to go check out the cloche pattern you mentioned. Do post where you got the flower pattern if you remember. It's beautiful!
