Here is my crochet project from this past week.  Crocheted beanies for Baby Kimber.  The lighting was bad when I took this photo, and it was taken with my old iphone, at night.  The red looking one is really hot pink.  I haven't made any flowers to attach  to them yet.  I will add a photo later with the flowers I plan to add.  I am trying to make a hat in every color of Caron Simply Soft yarn that I have already, and have 5 made so far, with about 5 or 6 more to go.  The pattern is free and can be found here.  Teresa Richardson (the creator) has an online tutorial to show how she makes them.  I simply stopped at 16 rows instead of 21, and added a picot trim or a shell trim on each hat.  I have a couple more patterns I would like to try also, but this one is really fast and easy.  I can make a hat in about an hour. It is like chips, you can't make just one!   If I ever get extra time I could probably crank them all out in one day.
