Round-Up - BEARDS

November 1st is right around the corner.  That means that along with many men (and even women), my husband will be participating in No-Shave November.  My friend, Jacqui, mentioned the possibility of crocheting herself a beard so she will "fit in" with the guys in her life.  In honor of my her, I bring you this Round-Up of Beards!!!

1.  Viking or Dwarven Beard by Totally Stitching

2.  Quick and Dirty Furry Beard by Mad Crochet Scientist

3.  Crochet Beard by Miriam Tribe

4.  Duck Guys Hats by Hatch-ed with Love

5.  Cthulhu Hat by Moose Musings

6.  Duck Dynasty Beard and Hat by Me and Morning Glory

7.  Master of Disguise by Hooks and Hornbooks

8.  Loopy Beard by Tera Kulling

Welcome to the Round-Up - Pumpkins

One of my favorite things to see on other blog sites is the pattern round-ups they do!  I decided that it would be a fun feature to add to our blog on a weekly basis.  We have quite a few we want to do and hope you'll give us your ideas for others.  Our plan is to feature patterns that you may or may not have seen before, but that cover a variety of project ideas.  Whether you're a crocheter, a customer, or just a fan, we hope to give you all some ideas.

* For the crocheters - you'll be provided with links to patterns fitting each week's Round-Up theme.  Some of these may be free patterns, some may be paid.  Either way, you'll be able to go directly to the source if you see a project you want to work on.
* For our customers (past, present, or future) - if you see something on our Round-Up that you're interested in having us make for you, let us know.  We'll be able to work with you to get the order processed.
* For fans - we know not everyone crochets or is able to purchase handmade items.  Maybe these are just crocheted items that will bring a smile to your day by seeing the pictures.  Either way, you're still welcome to join us for the Round-Ups each week.  Who knows, maybe you'll become a crocheter or a customer one day soon!

With both Halloween and Thanksgiving right around the corner, we thought it fitting that our first Housewives Round-Up should be PUMPKINS!!!  These are patterns that you may or may not have seen in the past - we wanted to feature a variety of pumpkin items.  Let's get started...
