Crochet first for me :: update

Continuing on from the last post, how I was super excited that I had crochet my very first baby beanie from scratch (yeah, yeah, I know I keep banging on about it) well I'm very pleased to post the finished article ::

Ta-dah!! ::

I think the crochet rose and boarder really make the hat!  It's a shame I don't have any cute baby models to wear this to show of the decorative trim a bit more, it looks so pretty!  I may use this in future for blankets :)

Here's a close up of the rose, sweet isn't it? It's one of those crochet roll and sew ones, there are a gazillion (yes an official number!) patterns online for crochet flowers, I normally search pintrest

Ah, so there we have it, my very first, sweet crochet baby beanie hat *proud face*.
I was thinking about writing a quick tutorial up for you guys, but I don't think it will work out, mainly because, I crochet left handed, and go clockwise instead of anti - clockwise, which may end up a little confusing for people, unless your a lefty of course!
I think I may make some more designs over this next week, and put them in my shop, see how they fare!

I'm also trying to find some more boyish things to make for my shop.  I think, as a parent of two boys, I've always been a little saddened at the lack of clothing choice for boys here in the uk, its pretty limited, there's nothing worse than walking into a shop thats 75% geared towards girls.  Maybe, more girls are born than boys here, I'm not sure but a little more choice would be nice!!

Possibly stumbled upon a niche here!!!
Well, as always its been nice to catch up with you guys
take care xx
