Variety is the Spice of Life!

I am excited to have finished all of the projects that I previously blogged about! 

First, I worked on a baby gift for a friend at church.  She is about to have her first little girl after having two boys.  As I was searching ravelry.com for pattern ideas, I ran across some cute patterns for banners.  I thought that this would be perfect for my friend, so I set about designing my own pattern. 
 I used the pink, green and white because those are the colors she is using to decorate her nursery.
 There is a flag on each end of the banner that just has a simple flower in the middle.
A close up of her daughter's name!
My next project was for a friend from high school who just gave birth to her first child, a little boy.   She lives in Michigan...where the winters are really cold and snowy, so I decided to knit her son a hat for this coming winter.  This pattern is called "Simple Stripes Baby Hat" by Danielle Norris.  It is found on ravelry.com or on her personal blog at http://justanotherpatternblog.blogspot.com/
And my last project is a butterfly hat that I made for a little girl who is battling cancer.  I've learned about her through one of her family members on facebook.  I'm hoping that this hat will make her smile!  This pattern was called "Olivia's Butterfly" by Valerie Whitten and can be found on ravelry.com or on her personal blog at http://vallieskids.blogspot.com/2009/06/olivias-butterfly.html
I have one more finished project that I put in the mail today, but I want it to be a surprise for the recipient...so I'll blog about it later!

Thanks for looking! :)
