During my pregnancy I found it really difficult to keep up with crocheting for retail while working my day job, so I made the difficult decision to scale back Beantown Handmade. Since then I have gone into crafting retirement, but I felt with the publication of my pattern book it was a really good time to let go. I miss it all the time! However, I'm so happy to have the time to make things for my family. I wanted to share with you some of the things I've made for Everett this past year. The first is this bird mobile that my husband and I made. It is from an adorable tutorial by Spool. It's really wonderful and they also offer some great pattern pieces.

I shared these on Facebook and now I am finally getting around to posting some pictures of Everett's Halloween costume here as well! He fit right in with the pack. He was happy to keep the hat on for a few minutes outside, but he's becoming quite good at taking hats off these days! Bean will have to teach him a few things about modeling ;)

The nip in the air is reminding me that Halloween is just around the corner. Being a pretty tired and busy new mom makes picking up a cheap costume for Everett pretty tempting, but I feel some pressure to perform in the costume arena. What will Everett think looking back at his photo albums if he sees I made more elaborate costumes for his furry brother and sister than I did for him? This pumpkin hat is an old favorite and the pattern can be found in my book, Patterns for Pooches. At the very least, we will have three pumpkins in the house this Halloween!

Patterns for Pooches, my crochet and sewing pattern book now available from New Holland Press. I created this new teddy bear hat pattern just for the book. The model is the adorable Archie, sitting on his big sister's bed. He was an awfully good sport and is featured in several of the pattern photos in the book. I created this hat with an organic cotton yarn, so it was almost as soft as Archie.
