new kids hats and tools

started on the frog kids hat last night. figured out about the heel and its working out fine now. got frog hat done and one slipper sock. then went to find some tools ii've never used but knew i had.

eyeball pompoms frog sock frog hat

found the stitch markers

this is what i normally use:

and pom pom maker. went online to figure out how to use it. after making one my husband said why not try to put black yarn in there too so you wont have to sew on a button after. that worked fine by working black first, then putting white yarn over it for the eye.

then major trimming as i didn't want it as big as it came out. i know i do have other size pom pom makers, just haven't found them yet.

want to start on snowman hat also today, thought with styrofoam spheres i have it might work out just fine-haven't even read the instructions on that yet.
sent duck hat to my grandson and they should get it tomorrow, can't wait to watch them open it via web camera.
