I've become a hooker (with wool)

He He, what a cheeky thought....No I have gone quite crazy with the crochet, I just cannot stop, any spare moment it is hooking away on hats and caps... I bought some great bakersboy(newsboy) crochet patterns from here.

I have had no luck locating a size Q hook but I am still working on it. I have had to modify the patterns a bit to get them large enough (due to the hook size issue) and finally, I have hit jackpot.... I have changed a stitch in the brim that makes it easier to find the doubling spot (blah blah blah, It matters to me only I think).. But here are some pictures of my recent crochet creations.. Oh and the flowers are blooming all over the place..


Now this little model , has no idea that his sisters are hiding behind the couch giggling their heads off, but my early attempts would only fit his head...




This crochet thing is my latest obsession.. I am sure Nanna would be proud..

What gorgeous hats! I love the bakerboy style too. I bought one for DD for winter but she kept taking it off. I was so disappointed to say the least LOL
