Ok, I have too many WIP’s (work in progresses) – I have to finish these before I embark on another test pattern for Etaria – I am going to be testing a Cardigan for her. I ordered yarn and I have a goal to finish these WIP’s before the yarn comes, or if I can’t do that, before I start on her project.

Here they are – I will keep the list updated as I finish:

1) Last and final top for 4 grand nieces
2) Finishing touches on all 4 tops
3) 3 pouches (gameboy and mp3 player) for grand nephews
4) Halter top and shrug for daughter
5) Tank top

Wow, that is a lot of crocheting, good thing the weekend is coming up!!! I will be busy tonight!!!

Ok, So I have been BUSY!!!

May 18, 2006 at 8:58 pm (Children's Wearables, Misc, Swaps & RAOK)

Here are some of the things I have completed lately:

I just completed testing another dress for Etaria – she thought it looked good. I told her I wasn’t exactly pleased with the color, but absolutely LOVED the pattern. She told me that the dress looked “stunning” – well that is all I needed to be able to post it here!!! She has the most beautiful patterns! I used a Red Heart Soft Yarn in a color called “Grass Green”.

My daughter wasn’t exactly a willing model this afternoon, but she obliged me:

Here is a pink top I did for my daughter. It is that fun fur (eyelash yarn) that I had purchased a while back and didn’t know what to do with it. I actually designed this top on my own. I just kept playing with it until I liked what I saw. She loved it. She wore it to school one day and all her girlfriends wanted one!!! Just to let you know I used the fun fur with a strand of White Red Heart Super Saver to come up with this look.

I was involved in a toy swapat this board I visit often called Crochetville. I was responsible for sending just one toy to a little boy who was four years old. This was my first ever toy I had crocheted, so I decided to do something simple. I did this snake, which the pattern can be found here. For this snake I just used a regular camo yarn from Bernat.

I decided after I had finished the snake that I wanted to try something a bit more difficult, so I made a baby triceratops. This was a major cute pattern. I got the pattern here. I used a Caron Simply Soft in grey.

Whew, I have much more to post but I am tired, it’s been a very long day.

I do have to let you know tho, there is a very special person out there that absolutely made my day today. I will tell you all about it the next time I post, which will be soon I promise!

Just Sent a Package to My Sister…

May 9, 2006 at 4:08 pm (Adult Wearables, Children's Wearables)

…and in it she will find this:

That is the black and white stole I made for her STARTING last year but just finished it this past week. I sure hope she likes it!!!

Also in the package is the complete Baby Boy set I made for a girl that just had a baby. I think they turned out cute!!!

  Let’s see…what am I working on now?

1) I am in the process of testing another dress for my daughter from the same designer as the Little Maiden Sundress (the peach colored one). This time I am doing it in a deep green. I just started it last night.

2) 4th and final top for my grand niece, this is half way done.

3) I am involved with a CAL (Crochet-Along) that is dealing with scraps. I want to make a Scrap-ghan with all this leftover yarn.

Isn’t that enough???

I have more pictures that I will post later.

The Shrug/Bolero is DONE!

May 2, 2006 at 6:22 am (Children's Wearables)


I finally finished the bolero. It’s for my 13 year old GRAND-niece. I took some pictures, but because of the varigated colors it’s hard to tell the pattern. I took one of my pillows and wrapped the bolero around it so that you can see the pattern better! After this one, I only have one more thing to make for the girls and that would be the top for the 7 year old.


I am taking it to a meeting tonight where I know someone that is about the age of the girl I am giving this to and about the size to see if it fits ok. I will post pictures tomorrow. I told her to wear something that would match these colors.

Other projects I finished are the toy I made for the SWAP I am involved in, and the hat for the baby set. I need to finish the booties for that to complete. I also need to finish that black and white stole so that I can send everything to my sister.

My Very First Baby Boy Wearable

May 1, 2006 at 6:02 am (Children's Wearables)

WOO HOO – I finally finished the little infant baby boy wearable!!! It’s a sweater, and then I find out it’s really too big to be worn by an infant! Oh well, I will just let her know it’s for his life later on!!!

I was also worried about it being to “girlie” but I was assured by many people, that the blue screams boy!!!

I have to remember to put what kind of yarn I used and where I got the pattern in all of my posts. The pattern came from this site (you have to scroll down to see the baby sweater). I used a Bernat Softee Baby in Denim.

Picture is clickable to see it larger.

Now off to make the booties and the hat that goes with it.
