Baby Booties on my hooks…

20170513_203855

Working on these for a friend expecting her first baby, a boy! These stitch up quickly and can be embellished with ribbon or buttons. I’m looking for small football buttons to add…my friend is a huge football fan!

Using ‘Shine’ cotton from Knit Picks – it’s very soft, has a nice subtle sheen and comes in a variety of colors …perfect for baby booties. Pattern tutorial: https://youtu.be/xKsPKrdzm_k

I crocheted a spa cloth but I did not like how the stitch spread open after one wash. So, I’ll use it for smaller baby accessories. I’m going to try their worsted weight which I expect will be more durable for larger items like a baby blanket.

Springtime favs

It’s looking and feeling like Spring lately.

This is my new soft Cotton mini yarn stash. It wasn’t easy selecting from the tons of colors Knit Picks offers on this yarn. It’s cotton & modal blends. I find this very interesting about Modal: http://www.aaatextiles.com/knit/Modal.html

The sheen is pretty and is so much softer than the Lily Sugar & Cream yarn I’ve used.

Here are some of the colorful skeins I bought.

Knitting pretty…

I’ve made #4 out of 30 knitted washcloths. I’m adding them to my ‘TLC packs’ for my Spring donation to the women’s  shelter. Going to wrap it around a bar of soap.

I’m enjoying using Cotton (Peaches & Creme) and working with the variegated yarn, in Spring colors!! 🙂

Happy Spring!! Happy Palm Sunday and the start of the Holy week.

Cotton, cotton and more cotton

 

I bought these gorgeous cones (14 oz) the ‘Seabreeze’ goes beautifully with this baby blanket. The striped ‘Limeade’ will make neat wash and dish cloths.

Lily Cotton (hot green) meets Peaches & Creme cotton (Seabreeze)

I decided to make a bunch of washcloths with the leftover cotton. They’ll go into my “TLC packs” for the ladies at a local shelter… along with soap, a toothbrush, etc.

Together we’ve done a lot…

 

I’ve done a lot of crocheted items: hats, scarves, cowls, lapghans, and fingerless gloves for our charity projects. Added together my Stitch & Bitch donated in excess of 200 stitched items. I am grateful as a group could offer so much.

On my #8 needles today is a sunny, lighter weight baby blanket (for a friend’s baby). I’m using Caron Simply soft for Spring & Easter.
