Cro-Shayley makes a Fish and Fisherman Hat

Bait outfitAny fishing lovers out there? My mom gave my son these adorable baby fisherman overalls and when I opened the gift all I could think about was how cute some baby photography could be!

It’s getting rather cold now down here in North Carolina…I can’t imagine what it’s like in Green Bay, WI.

Cro-Shayley Joins Neighborhood Stitch Club

My family and I just moved back to North Carolina from Mississippi a few months ago. It feels so good to be closer to our loved ones! We found a great neighborhood to live in that has all types of clubs to join to get to know people. I got an alert in my email one day for a new group for knitters and crocheters called Stitch for a Cause. I love to crochet and I enjoy making things for special causes so I had to join! The cause we are stitching for through January is for the American Heart Association’s Little Hats, Big Hearts. We’re making red newborn hats to raise awareness for heart disease and defects.

Cro-Shayley makes Reflective Workout Ear Warmers

Blissful Ear WarmersHas the cool Fall weather arrived in your neck of the woods? Are you someone who likes to work out outdoors and likes to take evening runs, walks and bike rides? Keep those ears warm while doing so and make Red Heart’s Blissful Ear Warmers using Red Heart Reflective yarn (MY FAVORITE). Reflective thread is wrapped around the yarn making it reflect light, aiding in nighttime visibility and helping protect you at night.

This pattern is super quick and easy. I made this project in less than an hour for my friend who lives down the street. She’s an avid runner and was in need of something to keep her ears warm while she works out in the evenings.
