Sock Monkey Hat

Handmade by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
Inspired by Dawn
 This hat was inspired by Dawn aka Backwoods Knifty Knits..... she is a wonderful needle knitter that I befriended on Facebook.... she makes these all the fact she made a business out of making these hats and does a beautiful job...I just knew I had to make me one the first time I saw hers...but it has taken me months to get up the nerve to make one... I am so excited at how it turned out!! As many times as I went to her hat for reference I forgot it had red hair!...LOL... mine is done on a loom and I chose to do all knit stitches and crochet around the edges of the hat... I had so much fun making this!!... Thank you Dawn!!

Ruffle Hat

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside Al

I made a hat similar to this one and a sweet lady I met through Facebook and a high school classmate took a kitten of mine...she saw my other hat and ask me if I sold these hats.... I said no... orders make me crazy!!  She said she understood...I later ran into her cousin that I had graduated high school with and learned she will be going through chemo...I felt so small that I had not said I would make her a hat... I made this one as a gift to her!!  She is a real sweetheart and has taken one of my kittens and loves it dearly... I hope she is pleased with her hat!

Baby Boy Blanket Set

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
 I have been working on this set for about a week now... I am loving baby blankets...didn't think that I would.  I Loom Knitted this blanket and finished it off with a crochet border.  I loom knitted the hat and added some crochet to the trim of the hat to make it match the blanket and the booties are crocheted.  Thank you for looking!

Baby Set

Handmade Designs by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, Al
I have been working on this set the past week...started over on the blanket 3 times...but finally got the look I wanted for the center... The blanket is knitted on my DaLooms Infinity loom... and then I added a crochet border... the hat is knitted on one of my Knifty Knitter round looms...then I added a crochet border to match the blanket.... and then I used a pattern (don't faint)...I motified the pattern a bit to get the look that I wanted... I ended up with two sets of for a giant baby... the patter called for an H hook... I ended up using a G hook on the second pair so they would fit a baby... I did a few other changes excited that I am learning!  Learning new things is so much fun. Too bad I didn't know that when I was in school!!... :o)   Thanks for looking... Hugs, Jeannie

Kitted Hat w/ Crochet Ruffel

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
I saw a hat a while back that had two of the sweetest ruffles on it...I loved it and had no idea how to do these ruffles.... the look to be knitted onto the hat... and I don't use needles... I use looms... so I though oh well. Lately I have been teaching myself to crochet... a friend taught me a few things years I thought surely I could figure this all out... so I have been playing... and learning....  woke up in the middle of the night one day and said...oh I know how to make a ruffle on a hat... later that day I went to work adding crochet to my knitted hat.... I had done this with a I was going to try it on a hat... and it worked...I was too excited.  Thank you for looking!  Hugs, Jeannie
