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.

Crocheting with Spring Colors

On my hooks: Spa cloths ( using Lily Sugar & Cream yarn) using the half double crochet, the double crochet  and moss stitch.  I’m eagerly awaiting my Knit Picks order of their cotton yarn.  I ordered light, Spring time colors like Peapod & Blush.

Headbands for Craniosynostosis


With a lot of craziness going on in our country, and the world, I gladly turn to my hooks and needles to create inner peace.

Summertime = more colorful ☺ cotton on my hooks & needles. I’m still whipping up cute girlie headbands. I’ve added another charity cause for girls with Craniosynostosis.  One of my friends sends care packages, a few times a year that will be added to care boxes they send to families. So, I have decided to do some of these for them as well.

 

 

 

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!! 🙂
