From my great-grandmother to my grandmother to me, the love of crocheting has been passed. I used to chain long strings and used them for 'show-and-tell' when I was little. Now I crochet clothing of all sorts. This is a passion and I love to make wonderful accessories for babies, kids, and the occasional adult. I use this blog to post new photos of hats and of my friend's lovely children. A quick feed of my Etsy shop is to the right and below are some buttons for your personal blog. Enjoy!

i dont rest my hands, not even for a day.

i have realized how much i like making shoes. well, i guess they're slippers. this design is so nice, and being me, i have to alter the pattern and i don't pay attention to it after a couple of uses. it all becomes freestyle and for some reason, i can't stick to patterns. the design yes, but not the specifics.

So Angela told me to email this lady who is doing a feature in small magazine. At first I wasn't sure, but then I decided to see what she says, and...drum roll please...My crochet stuff for kids will be featured in the Fall issue of the magazine. Yay! I just think that is neat and my grandmother would be proud :)

So, please stay tuned as I make lots of new stuff! (and lets hope its good!)

My planned items are: beanies, scarves, booties, & leggings (fall/winter stuff). Not sure how many will be made of each...but at least two. It's a lot, but she is sending them back to me in the end, so I figure meh, what the heck! This is my chance!

And I have the PERFECT yarn in mind.

Abigail's Sun Hat & Shoes

This set was made for my niece's 1st birthday. She's rather plump, and I want this to last more than 1 month, so the sizes are a little bigger than a regular 1 year-old. But I enjoyed making it and this weekend she will be photo'd with them on :) yay!

I really do enjoy seeing my crocheted stuff on little kids.
