Topic tags/keywords: resource talent knitting crocheting

This is not woodworking and not my project but I think it fits in this non shop talk forum….as much as many other topics…

For many years my wife Debbie has been knitting and crocheting …. during the last few month, she has been having fun crocheting some hats for our grandsons

They were so popular …

Now my Daughter is telling all her friends and there has been a lot of interest from all the friends we have shown…

What do you think of these fabulous hand made hats..?

She is busy building up a stock of different colour combos…... and if you want want, just let me know…

Custom orders are also available…

They’re great Larry, compliments to your wife.

And I agree, a good post for the non-shop forum.

Larry,
That’s just another thing we have in common. My wife is also a knitter and crocheter. She’s a professional with her own store and has some published patterns. She teaches folks her art and knits all the time, everywhere.
She claims that when we’re driving – we get there sooner when she’s knitting.
No, she’s isn’t behind the wheel while she knits!

Thanks for the peek at your wife’s work.
Good stuff. Neat owls!

Don

Colorful and cheery, these are quite fun! My hat’s off to Debbie. It might just be the camera angle, but it looks like these come in different sizes?

Those are really nice Larry, I’d love to see you wearing one. Debbie certainly makes some beautiful things, she is very talented.
My wife is also very talented, she has hobbies that come and go and last several months before she gets into another one. She makes Jewelry, scroll saw work (has her own tools), crochet work, arts and crafts stuff and many other things.
