I hope she (my daughter) likes her.
That was part of what I worked on this weekend. I also made a little tea cup and saucer from the RH pattern that came in one of my emails last week. You can find it here. I used #3 thread and #2 hook. They turned out cute. I did the cup handle different since it was too small to sew on (for me anyways). I just chained some at the end and then hooked on the bottom of the cup with a sl st and made some sc up to the top and sl st again and then crocheted another row of sc around back to the handle and fastened off. Cute huh?
I also started this weekend a granny ripple in Caron soft - Off White, Truffle Heather, Victorian Rose & Deep Plum Heather, and using an H hook. This is for a baby that's due in July. I forgot to get pics but I'm only on the 8th row. It'll look better with more rows done. It's going pretty quick actually, I started it yesterday afternoon and already on the 8th row. I got the pattern from one of the books I just bought - Complete Photo Guide to Crochet. I think I messed up one side of it but as long as I can keep it going the same way I think I'll be ok. And on this particular pattern in the book the ** is in the wrong place if you want to make a blanket wider than what the chart shows. I figured that out real quick in the foundation row. I scratched my head for a minute, went back and reread it and knew what the deal was.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I got a lot accomplished and still had time to hook. That front went through yesterday. It sure did wreak havoc in LA huh? I feel bad for those people. We got some much needed rain but then it cleared up late morning and was breezy. It was a tad chilly this morning too. I think the thermo-meter in town said 41, so it had to be colder at the house. I hope nothing gets zapped when it's just starting to come out.
Have a great Monday & evening. If I don't post til later in the week have a great week (I never know how busy I'm going to be)! I hope the sun shines down on you and fills you with warmth.
