Things to do when it is too cold to go outside #1

What can you do when you are stuck inside and your house cleaning is all done (for once!)? You can crochet some baby hats! Here are some that I "free handed" so to speak because I'm not skilled at following a pattern. I know 6 basic stitches. You can actually make a lot of crochet items with limited knowledge. My kind of craft!

The first one is a newborn sized hat with a brim, for a baby boy. It looks narrow because of the way I have it posed. It is for a specific baby at that-his mother is being induced tonight!

This "Scottish beret style" is for a bit larger child.

I'm not sure what to call this. It looks a bit colonial to me. It is also for a little older girl.

This is a fringed hat for a 3-6 month old. I hope the fringe isn't too bothersome for someone's little face.

I'm still working on my crochet hats and I am usually able to finish one per day. I would like to find a market for them, but in the meantime-I need the practice. Any suggestions?

These hats are so cute! You did a great job on them. You might want to try opening an account at

It is an online site where you can sell your handmade items. Good luck! :)

Those are adorable!! You are so creative! I think they would sell like crazy when you find a market for them :-)

These are too cute! I love, love, love them. I agree with the person who suggested the online account to sell them. (And, yes, it is far too cold to be outside today ... yikes!)

These are just soooooo sweet!!!! Do you have a pattern for them? I would love to make some to go with little booties for "The Pink Slipper Project." They make slippers (and other things) for homeless shelters, etc. I don't have a pattern for a little hat to match a pair of slippers. These would be just perfect!
