Ahhh….so precious!

So happy to share a photo of the sweet baby girl wearing the sweater I made for her!
How precious, and it’s a perfect fit, with a little room for growth….maybe!

A Sasha Kagan Baby Sweater

Sunday, 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

Thursday, 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!

I finished the “Radical Top” and before I mail it off to the anxious Birthday Girl, I had to model it… of course! I love it! I have to make myself one!!

New Projects

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Wow, has it been that long?! I guess it has! I have been slacking off on crocheting and knitting, but didn’t know it had been this long! Well, I only have one project to show, but a lot of wonderful life memories to cherish since my last post.

This is a crocheted Giraffe that a co-worker requested for her new grandbaby. She chose the colors that matched the baby’s nursery. I changed the striping pattern from the original pattern to get more of the green to show. This pattern was super easy; a beginner can handle this project with ease. It is 17 inches tall, including the horns. If you stuff the legs and arms as you go, it is so much easier. I love this littly guy!

Crocheted Baby Sweater

Saturday, May 18th, 2013

I finished the Summer Sweater to match the hat and shoes and forgot to post the photos. This was a set for a friend that asked me to make her “something”….”anything!” I chose pink because her nursery was pink; she’s going to be a ‘girly-girl!”

The pattern is from a Japanese Crochet Book that I bought while on vacation in Seattle. The graphs in the book detail the pattern, so there is no problem with trying to translate. The changes I made were adding the flowers along the bottom edge in the front and back and not adding the teddy bear face on the back of the sweater. The pattern stitch using the two colors was intricate and I loved how it came out.

….another coffee mug cover

Saturday, May 18th, 2013

My girlfriend saw the purple coffee mug cover that I made a while back and asked me for a red one. These are so quick and easy to knit up and make great gifts! Again, instead of a traditional ‘tea bag’ I added ‘mas cafe’ for my Spanish speaking amiga.
