Variegated Premmie Hat with white brim

I made another premmie hat yesterday, this time in variegated yarn. I ran out before the end so I did the brim in white. Its so cute, I wonder if it will ever get used? I used the same pattern as my tiny premmie hat pattern I shared earlier this month.

Dairy Free Apple Pie

My husband is on a dairy free diet as it seems to upset his tummy if he eats dairy, so we tried this recipe for dairy free pastry. We just skipped the raspberries because we didn't have any but it worked out fine. It was a delicious as it looks!

Tiny White Scallop Edge Premmie Beanie

I just love making premmie hats at the moment, they are so delicate and cute! Here is another one with a scallop edge, this time in white. I hope to add this to a collection of hats I hope to donate to the ward where my son spent the 1st 2 months of his life.

Tiny Blue Premmie Beanie

I made another premmie beanie following the pattern I posted about yesterday, this time in blue. Again I used a very soft baby yarn my mum gave me and a 3 mm hook. I'm hoping to donate some premmie beanies to the ward where Thomas spent the first 2 months of his life, hopefully they'll be of some use to them!

Tiny Yellow Premmie Beanie, free pattern

This hat was inspired by the tiny yellow premmie hat my son wore when he was first born 9 weeks early. Its 11 cm wide at the brim, and 9 cm high. My son's hat was knitted, but I don't knit so I made up my own crochet pattern. There are 4 increasing rounds, and 6 non-increaisng rounds, and 3 rounds for the brim. I used some lovely soft 4 ply baby yarn my mum gave me, and a 3mm hook.

Purple Granny Cluster Premmie Hat

Well, I have good news to share! Its been two weeks since my operation and I have slightly more strength in my left hand, enough so that I can crochet! My tension is a bit better than before my operation, so I'm very happy the operation looks like its been a success. The ulnar nerve is a very sensitive nerve that will take a long time to heal fully, the doctor said it could be some more months before the pins and needles goes away in my hand. Hopefully it will go away eventually because it's an unpleasant sensation. After my appointment today I felt encouraged so decided to do some crochet, so I made this purple premmie hat based on the granny cluster pattern, or what I call 'Princess Hat' pattern which I have available for free in my Ravelry download store. I just didn't do the scallops along the edge, instead I just finished with a round of sc. I used 8 ply wool and a 4mm hook. I'm hoping one day to donate a bunch of these hats to a premmie hospital, hopefully they'll be of some use to someone!

Pink Hearts Desire Doily

I found the link to this free pattern on Ravelry, its by Red Heart and is called a hearts desire doily. I used 4 ply cotton and a 2mm hook. I was spurred on to try some crochet after an appointment with a surgeon informed me that I might not regain full use of my left hand. So if this is what I've got, I want to try and use it, I can't accept that I can never crochet ever again! I will just have to adapt what I can make, won't I?

7 Petal Flower, free pattern

I saw another surgeon today and I was told there's a chance I won't regain full use of my left hand, so I made these flowers to see what I can actually do. At least I can make flowers! Here's the free pattern for this little 7 petal flower in 3 rounds.

White Teapot Coaster Doily

This teapot coaster doily was one of the last things I made before the tension in my left hand became to weak to crochet anymore. Sadly, I've misplaced the pattern! I found it for free on Ravelry and now I can't find it again. I took a photo of this today because I've decided to reopen my online shop, but stating clearly that I can't do custom orders. I'm just selling what I have already made and is ready to ship from my stock.
the pattern for this was free on Ravelry
