Hat For a Preemie - A NICU Project

A hat intended for a NICU donation.  I want to make a few more Mickeys and then some Minnie Mouse hats.  That is an orange the hat is modeled on.

2 Hats - 1 New and 1 Old

I just finished a Mickey Mouse hat for my grandson.  Last year around this time, I finished a Valentine's Day hat in light gray and pink.  What do you think?

Dang It - I Left My Project Somewhere!

I was going to post photos of my blanket in progress and the baby hats I made, but I left my project bag at my son and daughter-in-law's house!  I'll have to dig out another crochet hook and work on some baby hats in another color.  Maybe I'll retrieve the bag tonight and post some photos later.

My 4-legged buddy took a spill last night.  My min pin sleeps on my bed and I woke to a thump and a yelp in the middle of the night.  I don't know if I inadvertently kicked him or if he was sleeping near the foot of the bed and rolled out.  I don't remember feeling any contact with him before he fell.  I was sick about it and got up to check on him.  He is his usual bouncy self this morning (even though he is 12 years old) so I don't think he's hurt.  But then I was up all night worrying about him.  He was spinning in circles this morning when I asked him if he wanted to go out.  So I think he's okay.

I spent some time with my 2 grandsons yesterday.  They are the cutest.  Yes, I am biased.  But they really are cute.

Projects For This Year

I hope to start AND finish two projects this year.  Both are pretty ambitious projects.  One is to make another crocheted nativity set to give to my son and his wife.  They'll have to promise to put it up high so that their dogs can't chew it up.  I think I would cry if that happened.  LOL!

The other is a Crochet by Numbers projects.  Todd Paschall sent me the instructions and a pattern made from one of my personal pictures and I'd really love to make it, finish it and frame it for hanging.  It's a picture of my grandson Justin holding his newborn brother Nathan.

As for recent projects I'm working on - I've started some baby hats and blankets for the NICU donations I make each year for a crochetville member.
