Monster Monster High!

Ooops, has it really been that long since I last posted??? Oh life, you get in the way sometimes!  I've been busy busy busy these last few months, I'm back to work almost full time and my wonderful hubby is back in school!  We are very much looking forward to all the great changes coming our way.
With everything going on I still make time daily for crochet or knitting.  That's right, knitting!! I have taught myself how to knit and have fallen in the deepest love with my trusty circulars <3
My daughters are growing much too fast for my liking, and with growing comes new hats of course.  But I must confess, I've done so many hat orders recently I'm really getting sick of them!  My abilities stretch far beyond head wear and so I'm taking a much needed break from orders so I can just make what I want for awhile.  I  have a few hats I've made for the girls that I will post, and then no more hats until next year!!
My oldest daughter is probably the biggest Monster High fan out there, so when I came across a free Skullette appliqué pattern on Ravelry I was over the moon.  I surprised her one day after school with a funky Monster High inspired hat and she loved it, which makes me one happy Mama!
I also seem to spend too much of my spare time on Pinterest looking for yarny inspiration and such, so I thought it would be cool to pin something of my own.  I hadn't done this before but I saw so many projects from other people, so why not??  So I pinned this hat and I'm almost at 100 pins!  I was so excited that I decided to pin some other projects from my blog only to discover that other people already had!  So I'm out there and I didn't even know it!  Very flattering, so thanks to whoever that was, random strangers or loyal blog followers ;)

The appliqué is a free pattern from Ravelry, found here Monster High inspired Skully.  I used Red Heart Comfort from my stash.  The bow and the rest of the hat were made with Caron Simply Soft.  For the hat I used Neon Pink and Black held together throughout using a J hook with a basic HDC hat pattern.  
Thanks for looking and Happy Hooking!
