you can find the viking hat pattern on either Ravelry or Etsy (links below). It is a really well written pattern and I highly recommend it!

THE HOLIDAYS ARE COMING
RESISTANCE IS FUTILE
These owl hats worked up really quickly and turned out super cute! I used the gauge but they still seemed a little big at first. Don’t worry, this is normal. They fit the kids like a charm! Now I want one, lol!
I made this little kitty for my niece’s first birthday!
In the original pattern the bow is not removable. I adjusted the neckband by adding 3 stitches to the foundation row (as well as the proceeding rows) so it would fold over on itself and then added a snap button. I may even make a few more bows of varying colors so my niece’s new kitty has a proper wardrobe.
Recently made this baby blanket for a co-worker that just loves green! I used a free afghan pattern that I like (http://bloomingknitter.wordpress.com/2010/02/24/bubble-afghan/) and just adjusted the size. The blanket has a raised bubble pattern on one side (hard to see in the picture) that gives it a nice texture. The flower is actually my first ever attempt at needle felting!
I used this recently on some baby-booties I made. Seriously the coolest crochet thing I’ve learned in a long time! LOVE IT!
Rule #1: No time spent crocheting is ever wasted.
Rule #2: Keep track of your markers.
Rule #3: That’s not a mistake, that’s a design element.
Rule #4: There’s no such thing as too much yarn.
Rule #5: There’s no crying in crochet.
Rule #6: Never start a project without at least two hooks in the required size.
Rule #7: No coffee within 10 feet of yarn, projects, patterns or critical paperwork.
Rule #8: Block that puppy.
Rule #9: If the hook is not moving easily and smoothly in and out of the stitches, you are crocheting too tightly. Relax.
Rule #10: If it hurts, stop.
Rule #11: Check your work. Often.
Rule #12: Seam crochet only when absolutely unavoidable.
Rule #13: Cut yarn only when absolutely unavoidable (see special circumstance Rule #19).
Rule #14: The private should look as good as the public.
Rule #15: Whenever doable, obtain twice as much yarn as you think the project will require (a corollary to Rule #4).
Rule #16: There is no right way or wrong way, but there is the way to get the same results as shown.
Rule #17: Listen to the yarn.
Rule #18: Yarn sometimes lies.
Rule #19: Exterminate all knots and wonky sections as they arise from a skein.
Rule #20: UFOs that have not spoken to you for more than a year may be considered stash in pre-crocheted form.
Rule #21: Read the fracking pattern.
Rule #22: The pattern could be wrong.
Rule #23: Get it when you see it because when you come back next time it might not be there (another corollary to Rule #4).
Rule #24: Life is too short to mess with indifferent yarn.
Rule #25: Sweat the details.
Rule #26: Crochet is not dumb and neither are crocheters.
Rule #27: Knitting is not the enemy.
Rule #28: Anyone who doesn’t get Rule #26 is the enemy.
