SPRING Baby Crochet Knits

Loads of crocheting happening lately... 
made these for someone special... 
a simple baby sacque for 12 month old and a hat to match... 
100% cotton 8ply from Bendigo Woollen Mills ... 
sometimes you can find the yarn for sale with retailers under the name of Heirloom Cotton 8ply 
Hook:  3.5mm

I designed the HAT to match the sacque...

the sacque pattern "Little Sunshine"
comes from 
by Denise Black and Sandy Scoville

The pattern is written for
Dreambaby DK (50% acrylic 50% nylon)
and was crochet in YELLOW
just one colour...
whereas I chose 
to do multi-colour
and in cotton

I am not sure if you can still buy the box set
or if it's available to purchase somewhere
maybe on Amazon
or you could try the publishers


to change the pace 
I have started a little KNIT project...
I need to stop having dreams of crochet 
for a while...
I am sure I don't get enough rest
during the night...

Again I am using Bendigo Woollen Mills cotton
however this time it's 4ply
a beautiful pale lilac
and knitting on 3mm needles
think it's working out OK...??

I am hoping to turn this sample 
into a baby singlet top?
Oh well, it's giving me
a short break from crochet
so even if I never finish it
I don't mind...
c'est la vie

What are you crocheting?
or knitting?

Enjoy every moment,
focus on every stitch,
create a masterpiece....

ciao, ciao...
