Hooked on Crochet!

I am absolutely Hooked on Crocheted items... GET IT? HOOKED! ha ha... I know, I'm not really funny, but I make myself smile which really is all that counts, right? Anyway, I do love crocheted items.

Hooked on Yarn CT has the cutest crocheted items. And I'm not just saying that because she's my aunt hahahaha. I love her stuff. I have tons of hats and she has made a ton of my friends stuff.

Most of the time when we are doing craft fairs- my aunt is always working away the whole time. She'll usually whip up 4 or 5 more hats within a 5 hours craft fair. I wish I could do something like that! Instead, I sit and eat throughout the whole fair... but that's a completely different story!

Anyway.. I want to show you some of her work. It's the perfect gift for someone!! And I know a lot of you are saying "well, winter should be over- why do I need any hats?". SHE HAS MORE THEN HATS! I just personally LOVE the hats the best because when I take the time to straighten my hair- I have a perfect hat head.

So. What does she have you ask? She has wine cozies, fingerless gloves (perfect for the cold office where your typing a lot), beach bags, hanging kitchen towels, and much much more!

Here's some snazzy photos of her work...

Isn't her stuff adorable? My favorite is the black and red hat. Even though I'm actually not a huge red person- I really like it. Maybe I'll have her whip me up one.

Now, my favorite picture of all time....

Look at the great pet bed she made for our dogs! Featured here on this fabulous bed is my little man Leroy. He is so handsome! Lori, the creator of Hooked on Yarn CT, created this bed for my baby a ridiculously long time ago (my mind is shot, so I can't remember exactly when). But this bed has gone through A LOT. One of my dogs, Ava, has a tendency to throw up allll the time. These beds can be thrown right in the wash then they are good as new! Now, I don't know if she made this special for my family or not since I currently don't see it in our website... but I bet you can message her and she'll give you more info on it.

So if you get the chance, check out her site! It's full of really cute stuff!
