Our tree & "Coming Home" poncho

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. :)
We had a little family gethering at my SIL's house.
I baked a 4-layer pumpkin cake, which I got its recipe from kraftfoods.com.
If you love creamcheese and pumpkin, this cake is for you!
It was a hit, and women at the gethering begged for the recipe. :)

By the way.....

Do you remember my crochet snowflakes I made in August?
Well, they are on our tree now! :D


I just wish I made more snowflakes...
I'm pretty sure I'll be making more for years to come.
I just LOVE how they look, and my son never wants to leave the side of the tree. :D
The information about my crochet snowflakes can be found here and here.

Pattern from Lion Brand website.
I used Homespun in color "Sierra".
I'm not sure if I picked a right color for my younger sister, but this poncho is very WARM. My sis is always cold so I know she will wear it. :D

I'm now working…

But I just didn't feel like knitting or using sportweight yarn so I just started crocheting it with single crochet stitches and rather thin worsted weight Caron's Simply Soft hoping that he would like it.

Result?

He didn't like it, he said he loved it and it was exactly like how he wanted it to be! :) He went to show the beanie to some of his skateboard buddies as soon as it was done, and that made me happy. :)



Check out other crocheters beanies made with this pattern on Ravelry!  
Anyways, I was relieved and thought maybe some of you may like to make one too. ;D
I used only chains and single crochet stitches.
I believe many of my visitors don't even need the pattern because it's really just basic hat pattern, and there may be similar one out t…
