SHELLS AND SUNSHINE COCOON & HAT SET

SHELLS AND SUNSHINE COCOON & HAT SET

Spring is on its way, and a little sunshine will be nice.  I completed my next pattern over the weekend and made two sample sets… I am hoping I got all the little quirks worked out and I will be posting the free pattern later this week for these cute little baby Cocoon & Hat Sets.  I tossed around the thought of what to call the pattern and since the sweet little yellow one was the first one completed, I decided to call them Shells & Sunshine Cocoon and Hat Set !

.

I will be carefully going over the pattern a couple more times to make sure it works before I post it.  The pattern is simple and works up  quickly.  The set could be made up in just a few hours if you had a baby shower to go too!  The set is for newborn – 3 months.

.

These 2 sets will be delivered as usual to Alpine Originals to put up for sale.  Like I was saying last post, they are participating later this month in the our city’s Art Walk… The display they have this month is focusing on artists with children’s items.  So… I have been working at record speed to make several items that fit in that category!

Just Another Friday Night!

Just Another Friday Night!

SO… It’s Friday Night and time to put my feet up!  I had been thinking all day what I wanted to work on tonight.  It seems like I am always making things for someone else or something to sell… I decided it was ME time!!! But, what did I want to make for myself??

It’s been so long since I’ve done that, the thought of it was a little overwhelming.   I scanned my favorite sites and blogs for ideas and finally I decided on a Granny Square Blanket… I have thought about it for years and now it’s time!

I found a great pattern on Ravelry… Sunburst Granny Squares by Priscilla’s Crochet.    I gathered up my stash and my favorite hook and now it’s time to get started!

Check back to see my progress!
