yet more crochet.........

Multi colour 3 ply

Little red riding hood - in 3 ply

8 ply blanket
Have to admit it, I've been enjoying creating these little jackets & boots.  The jacket & hat pattern is from book 3 called Layettes, by Ruth Layfon Blythe & the boots from a Craft Moods publication, available from crochet Australia.  All are done in 3 ply.  Now the hat is a hybrid of the book pattern, because I thought that some shaping in the back would look better & hopefully fit better.  The rug is in 8 ply acrylic & modified from a design in Crochet! mazagine.  The red wool has been around since the 1980's and finally crocheted up and was in the inherited baby yarn.

I've been wanting to buy a floor frame for a while now, so finally took the plunge, and from the Fox Collection ordered a frame to put my larger cross stitch frames into.  Can't wait for it to get here & then I may get back to the Family tree cross stitch.

So, not looking forward to today - off to the dentist for some more work on the teeth (yuk).

Have a great week

  1. Hope all went well at the dentist and that your new floor frame arrives quickly. I really love seeing your crochet and they must work up so quickly being baby outfits. Something very special about dressing bubs in gorgeous things like this. I did it even though our second bub was about a 6 outfits a day girl LOL. Very chucky little girl unfortunately. Have you got all the blocks printed out from the gumtrees site yet. I have mine all ready to the embroidery stage with each block having at least one piece appliqued on it. They might be closing it down shortly

  2. I love the little rug, you are so clever.
    Good luck at the dentist; I need a filling and am putting it off and putting it off; I hate dentists!!
    It is very cold here today so great weather for knitting and crochet I think.
