Holland enjoyed modeling her new hat...she has way too many hats, as you may imagine. :)

Mens 3-Stripe Tennis Shoes

My husband has been asking me recently to make him a pair of slippers. I'm pretty picky when it comes to "crochet for men" has to be very masculine for me to approve of it. :) And generally crochet is not masculine. But I am very pleased with the look of these new slippers. I think they look super cool on hubby's feet and he loves them! :) Pattern is now available on Ravelry or in my Etsy shop.

Twirly Scarf

My neighbor-girl back home in Wisconsin, who I have known since she was 5 months old, has just graduated from high school! She won several scholarships and awards and is heading off to college in the fall. As part of her graduation gift, I decided to design this scarf for her. She has lovely red hair and I think this color will suit her nicely. :)
Thanks to my husband's coworker for modeling this new design for me! I might have modeled it myself, but being 7 months pregnant, I didn't think that'd be a good look! :)

I don't normally spend much time making amigurumi, but over the past 2 days I have been busy creating my version of Toopy from "Toopy & Binoo." (No, I haven't made Binoo yet.) He measures approx. 12" tall standing. The pattern is now available on Ravelry or in my Crochetbury pattern shop on Etsy.
