Hooded Cowl and Boot Socks

January 2nd, 2016

I made a Crocheted Hooded Cowl and Boot Socks as a requested Christmas gift. Both of them worked up so fast, I was amazed. The longest part of the project was waiting for the yarn order to come through the mail from JoAnn’s Fabrics. The yarn for the crocheted hooded cowl was so thick and the hook size P so large, it is a great project for a beginner. The recipient, (my daughter) loved the set, and now I have three more requests for boot socks! I hope I have enough yarn, otherwise I have to order more. 😮

This set is a gift for a very nice couple who just had their first baby. They did an awesome act of kindness for me when I needed it most. May God bless their new family addition!

Granny Square Cotton Dress

May 26th, 2015

I just finished and gifted this cute 12 month sized dress for a co-worker’s adorable little girl. It is the first time that I have ever incorporated fabric with a crochet or knitting project. I did all of the sewing by hand, because I don’t have a sewing machine, but it was a small project and so it was very manageable.

It was another easy project! I asked for a measurement of her chest circumference and made the appropriate amount of granny squares to fit. The fabric was sold bundled as a remnant, and came in a 15×18″ size. I gathered the 15″ side to fit the granny square circumference, and sewed them together. Then simply hemmed the dress to 16″ from the shoulder. Added two buttons on each shoulder that are closed with using loops that were part of the last crochet round.
So cute! I have started making another one using a different fabric.

How precious, and it’s a perfect fit, with a little room for growth….maybe!

A Sasha Kagan Baby Sweater

March 8th, 2015

I finally finished this beautiful, challenging, gorgeous baby sweater for my co-worker! This is one of those patterns that has been on my “to do” list for years, so I was happy to finally have a reason to begin it when my co-worker said she was having a baby girl.

It calls for cotton, so you know I chose Omega Sinfonia….my all time favorite cotton yarn! The pattern is meant to incorporate the intarsia method for the flowers, but I was too lazy for the challenge and instead used the duplicate stitch after knitting up each piece. Well, THAT was a mistake! It took f.o.r.e.v.e.r to do each flower and the leaves, and I quickly regretted not doing the intarsia method. Lesson learned.

In the end, I absolutely love this little sweater, and will gift it tomorrow. Will I ever make it again? Yes! (But using the intarsia method!!)

Santa Baby Set

December 11th, 2014

My niece asked if I could make this set for her friend, who is expecting her baby next week. Such a cute set…how could I say “no?”

I made the newborn size, and actually used two different patterns: one for the hat and another for the diaper cover. The diaper cover pattern called for doubling the yarn; the hat pattern uses single yarn. It came out so cute! I hope to receive a photo soon from her!
