Pretty as a Princess Finished!!

As you can see, I changed a couple of the colour choices as I went, dropped the dark purple and added a lovely blue. I made this using www.bendigowoollenmills.com.au cotton 4 ply and a 3.75mm hook.
I loved making this and hope that Abbie wears it, as I would love to make more.

Pretty As A Princess

I am using the Jenny King Pattern Pretty as a Princess, this pattern is awesome value, it has sizes for girls aged 2-14 years old and 4 different styles of edges. I am using the pattern for age 6-7 year old. With the bobble edging. So all pieces made, ready to assemble. Oh pattern is available here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/pretty-as-a-princess
Ok got it all assembled, ready for edging, trying to work out colours
These are the colours Abbie chose. As you will see the finished garment went slightly different, I used a lovely blue instead of the dark purple and didn't use the other pink at all.

The Mystery Round Pillow

I still have a couple of tops and things of that sort to pop up here. I am waiting on a yarn order, I am designing a new blanket for a workshop in April at QSW&FA. More details are coming. But instead of not starting anything new, I am gonna have a look at the cushion my DD teacher bought at a thrift shop. I can't seem to find the pattern, so I am just going to reverse engineer it. If you have any ideas where to look for the pattern let me know!

Love Me Mary Janes

These beauties where made as a pattern test for Theresa Grant I used sockweight yarn that I had dyed using food colouring. Love the marled effect of the dye, These Love me Mary Janes, still get popped on little feet to run about the house in.

Soft Serve

Doris Chan Soft Serve is published in her book Everyday Crochet. I made 1 small change for my Soft Serve, I do not like ties, so I left them off. I love how you many sizes are available for Doris' patterns, makes them available to nearly everyone!

All Shawl

Doris Chan has many wonderful patterns and is also very generous, she has made the All Shawl a free download. My Silver All shawl was made with a few modifications, mostly becuase I ran out of yarn, it made a lovely shoulder wrap for my friend who it went home with. My little model was very dissappointed when she realised that she didn't get to keep this one.

Purple Round Ripple

The first week of December 2006 I finally decided on what I was going to do for my mum for Christmas, a Round Ripple Afghan. I knew it was a herculean task when I decided to do it, but somehow I managed to make a queen sized Purple Round Ripple afghan in 3 weeks. Lets say I didn't crochet for about a month after this as my hand was very sore. I got it washed, dried, wrapped and under the tree 1 hour before my my mum came to visit, and she did all the right oohs and ahhhs it deserved, I felt very content that afternoon. The pattern I used was from Sew on Fire Ministries for a baby afghan, I used various DK weight acrylics and a 4.5mm hook.

Rainbow Cardi

I made the Rainbow Cardi using an old baby pattern, I used a much thicker yarn, and larger hook to get it to fit my then 2 year old. She is now 5 and it still fits as a little bolero.

Piggy Beanie

The Piggy Beanie was made for my new nephew, I bought the pattern from Crochetroo's Etsy Shop. It was a lot of fun to make and really how cute is it!! I used Spotlight Acrylic and 4.5mm hook

Solomons Knots wrap

I made this wrap of Solomons Knots or Lover Knots for My Mum. Purple is her favourite colour in the whole wide world, so I made it in some Purpley Grey (can't see much purple here, but it really was there) mohair acrylic.

Peonie Duffle Bag

The Peonie Duffle Bag is based on the pattern designed by C L Halvorson. I did make a fairly major change, instead of using the Daisy square pattern, I went with the Peonie pattern, which I found in 200 Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton. I find Jan Eatons instructions to be really clear and very pretty, this is my go to book when I am making throws and afghans.
