Darling Of A Dress

Darling Of A Dress

Yes Darling of a Dress one could say …I think this one gave me the most trouble in a while. To the point where I knit it twice.

First one in fingering weight it is to fit a 2 to 3 year old… brought it to work. Some said that is more for at 18 month old… Ohhhhh noo.

So off to the dying pot to make same colour in Dk weight and start over again.. Lol so I thought great I’ll have it knit up in no time…

Except…. something just did not work out well. tTe sleeves just did not fit in with the arm opening. Opening was to big and yes that in both dresses… Yuck what am I doing wrong was my question. I just could not concentrate on this one… something is not going well.

Have you ever thought… Nooo what is going on with me? why am I not getting this..

Well honestly so far this has not happen to me many times in my knitting lifetime lol.

So I looked at the written pattern and the chart…OHHHHHHH NOOOOO this is not the same..

Time to modified the arms and made it work.

Now for the pattern, it really is a beautiful dress and I love knitting Drops Designs pattern. Never really had a problem with them. But this one I am so glad it is done.

Fall Cover Up

Just finished this quick cover up Poncho for Chloe. I hope this will fit her for some time. A thank You for a helping hand. Chloe’s “Grosi” is always so ready to help me in need. Thanks for being a friend.

This pattern is called Robin Poncho. You too can purchase this on Ravelry for your self. Or download on her blog http://www.mukicrafts.com as far as I know…

I had been given 5 skeins of yarn called “Sugar Baby Stripes” by Mary Maxim. Only used 2.5 for the size 6. Great yarn for this kind of job.

Fun Day Dyeing Yarn

2019-01-24 10.21.01-1So I had a order for 4 skeins in a very deep plum colour. To be exact, it had to be the same as the top 2 skeins. I  am very happy I was able to recreate the same colour and strength in the bottom 4 skeins as I have in the top 2.

Then decided to play around with 4 skeins of Fingering weight in a deep plum but much more with light to dark shades in same skeins. I am in love with this look and can’t wait to see them knit up.

Crochet T-Shirt-Fabric Bag

IMG_1340What to do when you don’t feel like knitting or sewing… Used no pattern for this design..just started to crochet.

I had bought many years back in Switzerland some of the string yarn… now it was time to use it up.

Bought some more of T-Shirt fabric that I cut up…Hope to writ this pattern up shortly for any one that likes to crochet one bag too.

For the handles I used 2 of the same inexpensive Belts that I had extra holes added by a local shoe repair place.

Then just wove the belt straps in to the bag
