I'm very happy to say I've finished not one, but two projects this week. Firstly Robin from Rowan's Story Book of Little Knits. There aren't many boy patterns in this book, I like this one as it's done in cotton...perfect for Aussie weather. Plus yarn was on sale at the Woolshack hehe!!
Yarn Rowan Handknit Cotton in Black, Celery and Chime
Needles 4 mm and 3.75 mm circ
Alterations none, but I had a massive amount of yarn left over at the end. Sewing in the shoulder patches was a pain!!
Look at Jett's face: he has to make funny faces in photo's now, we say smile and this is what happens......:)
Okay, next was my crochet dress. It turns out crochet is surprisingly easy, and quick...but I don't have to tell any fellow crocheters that do I??
So I made the Sweet and Swingy dress that was in Crochet Today. I used left over stash yarn, and if you sort of squint it looks perfect. Yes, there are a few mistakes. But overall, quite good. (if I do say so myself eh!!!!)
Yarn Jo Sharp Dk Wool in a brown colour. I bought this off ebay and it was unlabeled. And Cherry for the trim
Hook 5 mm
Alterations I didn't do the reverse single crochet around the neck and arm holes as I thought it would be too fussy. Instead I added a flower, which I think is so cute!!
