Vest with tie

The vest with the fake tie is in a size 3 and made from Red Heart Designer sport. The pattern is from Crochet Today May/June 09. I have a hint if you make it and love French knots then dot it. I had a devil of a time making the back stitch stripes on the crocheted background. If you want the stripes use painters tape to get the lines straight. Maybe you have a better eye that I did. It looks good after I used the tape to get straight lines. I attempted the outline , chain stitch. The backstitch is all that really looked right.

Books I bought.

Crocheted Star Quilt

worsted weight yarn
H hook

Quilt Diamond

row 1: Ch 2,sc in 2nd ch from hook Ch1 turn each row

row 2: 2 sc in sc .

row 3: Sc in first sc, 2 sc in last sc.

row 4: Sc in each of first 2 sc, 2 sc in last sc.

row 5: Sc in each sc to last sc, 2 sc in last sc. Repeat row 5 until there are 10 sc. Ch 1 turn.

row 11: Sk first sc, sc in each remaining sc. Ch1, turn. Repeat row 11 until 1
stitch remains End off, leave tail for sewing

When making the white or solid diamonds (6) around the star you don't have
to end off. It makes it easier to sew them around the star.

I made half blocks to fill in. The fill-ins were just to make it square

Baby sweater and a Who Hat

The camera lied this hat is Christmas green and very very cute (my Who Hat)

The Who hat is really a candy corn hat pattern by Sarah Nopper. The pattern in on ravelry. I knitted more rnds between the decreases. Really I wish I could get a good picture of this hat. It is for Gus T. My grandson will be here Wed who who :)

The sweater is a kinder red my goofy camera and lighting. It is the Little Lamb from the Leisure Arts ( Precious Layettes to Knit) Now I did the yoke plain then went back and made french knots on the M1 on the yoke it was perfect spacing. I use size 8 needles instead of 10 so it looks newborn. The hat is the one I love from Janelle Schlossman. I miss her and her old site. The booties are the Saartje's Booties you can download this pattern from ravelry. My grandma's buttons. I love this set. It is for a dear friend's first grandchild. Well everything is except the Who Hat.

All Julie wanted was this elephant bib. So it is made with good cotton yarn.bib

The hat is the same as the hat pattern I made with the hex baby sweater.

BIG project done.!!!!!!!

The big project is from Crochet Today July/Aug 09. It is really messed up. Check out their correction page if you make one. I don't think they have all the corrections up. I have been making toys for 38 years so I winged it some. This is for the baby grandson. His room is ocean theme. His Aunt painted really cute pictures for his room and one has a crab in it that will mirror his floor pillow. I put 4 huge sacks of poly-fil in. I may have stuffed it a little more than called for because it will flatten out. Never again.

Remember part 2

Remember this little sweater I knitted using Bernat Stripes. It is in the little Bernat Stripes Booklet.

Big Big Purse? Tote? Done

granny felted bag BAG link

The bag pics are not the best. They show the bag with a bag of stuffing in the bag (for size). I cut part of a place mat to sturdy up the bottom, but it can be removed for a soft bottom bag. The handles are very different and I placed them to make the bag expand if needed. I also put a button on the inside to close it up if you wanted. I think the pics do not do it justice.

The bag and pics and my changes are on my March 6/09 post.
