FO Friday: A Collection of Crochet Projects

While I was waiting for the issues with my left arm to resolve, I worked on some crochet projects which I never got around to sharing on this blog once they were finished! Here's how I kept my hands busy during the worst of my golfer's elbow flare-up, when I could barely knit a stitch:

I made this Crochet Hat with some Plymouth Yarn I had in my stash and a free pattern from Little Things Blogged. I got a little carried away with the slouchy bits, but I think it still turned out pretty well. And, of course, I topped it with the world's biggest pom pom!
It's been a while since I made any toys, so I decided to use a skein of yarn I bought at Yarn Con earlier this year to make a cute little Bunny using this pattern from FreshStitches. I don't know why, but I always have a few limbs askew on my toy projects, and even though I was trying to make things reasonably lined up, this little guy still looks like he's trying to pose like a supermodel:
I also crocheted what I thought would be a nice little storage container made from handspun (and hand-dyed!) yarn, but because I am such a loose crocheter, it ended up as a bit of a floppy mess. Even felting it didn't help snap it back into shape!
Luckily, Tilly discovered it about ten seconds after I set it out to dry, and it's been one of her favorite napping spots ever since. I'm pretty glad that someone appreciates it, because I really wasn't sure what to do with it otherwise!
That's it for this week - thanks for stopping by! I'll actually be sharing a blog post on Monday when I review a new book from Jen Lucas called Cozy Stash-Busting Knits: 22 Patterns for Hats, Scarves, Cowls & More. Have a great weekend!
