Monday, 6/28/10 Celebrity Slouchy Beanies for the Family

Crochet Slouchy Beanies Cover
When I first saw the Celebrity Slouchy Beanies book here on CrochetSoiree and discovered that the designs were by Lisa Gentry, I couldn’t stand it; I had to have it.

Soft Dreams Cover
Soph Baby Cover
Before I could place my order, I found the brand-new Soft Dreams and Sophisticated Baby & Toddlers. I’ve been making a lot of baby gifts lately and decided I needed a few more patterns to choose from. Plus, I don’t think you can have enough toddler patterns either.

Grannies Wild Cover
Then, my eye caught a glimpse of this new book called Grannies Gone Wild. Oh my gosh, if you don’t already know by now, I’m a granny square lover, so I had to order it, too. Plus I don’t think you can have too many granny square patterns either. Ha! Ha!

Anyway, when my new books came, I could hardly wait to open them up and look at all the neat designs. Before I knew it, my son, Joshua, had the Celebrity Slouchy Beanies book and had started on the Lacy Beanie. He told me he was making it for his girlfriend, Riley.

Mans Slouchy Hat
Then, before I knew it, he had finished Riley’s beanie and had started another one, but this time he was making one of the guy’s beanies for himself—unless someone else comes along and wants it. I don’t know when I’ll get the book back to make my own versions of the beanies. Ha! Ha!

Rileys Slouchy Hat
Here’s a cute picture of Joshua and Riley when she was trying on her hat.

If you want to join in on the June Crochet Along, you can have a chance to win both the knit and crochet version of Celebrity Slouchy Beanies for your own—or if you can’t wait, just order them here at CrochetSoiree like I did.
