Hello, today I am joining in with Ginny and her Yarn Along.
This week I have been trying to finish my Christmas decorations for the swap. All the crochet bits are done, it just some sewing and adding a few embellishments left to do. This is the fun bit, choosing extra trimmings and trying different things out till I find a combo that I am happy with.
They look a bit weird all unfinished, but I think they will be cute once I get them together.
I think it is ok to go a bit over the top at Christmas time, I'll show you the finished things later in the week (hope you will be able to tell what they are supposed to be, Gary couldn't!!)
I have also been looking at a new crochet book that I got this week, Little Crochet by Linda Permann.
There are some cute things for babies and toddlers in here and a very nice granny square blanket that I might have a go at some day.
But these little Cutie Patootie Pants are the reason I wanted this book. I saw the lovely ones that
Shara from One Grey Elephant made, and just had to make a pair for a few up and coming babies (not my own!)
I am thinking of making them in cotton, as I have just received some new cotton from Bendigo.
These 5 colours are from their new seasons colours, and I really like them, especially the kiwi green and the sky blue.
These are the new colours mixed with some older colours that I already had, I think I can make some good colour combos with this lot.
I have 5 hours as a passenger in the car tomorrow, so might make a start on a little pair of pants.
Happy yarning on!
