Beginning State Fair Projects

Found the pattern for the Dr. Who scarf for the third doctor in the series. Just had to make one since the piece of art I won at the Charlotte Comic Con was Dr. Who themed. I am on color change number four. Had to improvise on the colors a bit because I could not find some of the required colors.

Next, will be a crochet sock monkey. Found a pattern without any picture to follow so will see how that will go. I received a yarn donation from a co-worker that I am going to use for part of the monkey. She gave me yellow and green baby yarn and they look really good held together. So I am going to use soft white for the head, mouth, hands and feet area and the color combo for the body.

At my boyfriend's request, I came up with a chart for the snake eyes tattoo to crochet on a hat. Was pretty easy so just have to do a test hat to see how it looks to see if I want to enter it into the fair.

Second option on the hat front is a pattern I have had my eye on for a while. It looks like a birthday cake. Will use it for at the office for your monthly party for the birthday girl/boy after the fair.

And lastly, will be my idea for a baby hat. Just try to win the blue ribbon again since I only got third place last year. I found bits and pieces from three patterns to play around with my idea for the hat. Will fill in later with more details...don't want to give the competition a leg up just in
