Hello again!

This is just a quick post to show what I have been making in the world of yarn! Having a little one who enjoys grabbing my crochet hook makes crochet a little slow at the moment, haha. But it makes me laugh and I enjoy every single second.

I haven’t had a lot of time for crochet lately, not just because of Baby, but because I’ve been sewing quite a bit in my few spare moments.

A friend gave me this black and orange yarn which I have been desperate to use for something Halloween themed. I had in my head a little dress with straps with orange and black netting at the bottom like a tutu. I had a good go this week and it looks pretty much how I imagined it to look.

I used a 4.5mm hook and made a chain of 60 stitches along the bottom. I then did SC along and then changed to HDC. It isn’t long enough so I added a panel at the back and put buttonholes in it. I have these gorgeous pumpkin buttons I want to put on there, but can I find them?!

‘Stop Mummy, give me attention!’ I wonder if she will be a crocheter like me in the future?

Look at that face. She makes me go all gooey inside when she smiles. The dress looks so cute on her! I have had the orange and black netting for ages so I’m glad it is getting used. I have to hide this dress from the cats though as they seem to enjoy chewing net fabric and ribbons. I’m going to add more net and tulle though, making the dress fluff out like a ballerina dress. She will wear a plain whit long sleeved vest underneath and tights. I wonder if you can buy orange baby tights? I’ll look in Primark. If not, I’ll buy her a pair of cheap white ones and dye them orange using kool-aid. Kool-aid is so great for dyeing! I dyed about six inches of my hair on the 22nd July this year. It is STILL in. It’s semi-permanent! I love the red in it though, first time I ever dyed my hair. I’m thinking blue ends of hair next.

The only other knitted thing to show you, besides all the lovely cardigans she has, both by me and lots of other people, is this romper I made a few months ago. It is from a book ’60 Quick Baby Things to Knit’ or something like that. I changed the elephants to have two rows as I hate plain stocking stitch. I also changed the straps as they were just not working for me for some reason. I sewed on tiny elephant buttons at the straps and added kam snaps at the crotch. She looks so cute in it, so small and dainty! This will keep her warm for sure! 0-3 month size I think, in Drops Karisma from Wool Warehouse.

Anyway, must go now!

  1. She is so adorable Kais! Love the little tutu dress and elephant dress as well. The picture of her grabbing the crochet hook is priceless. For myself I’m in a real crafting slump and haven’t gotten anything done much less blogged about. Our summer has been so busy. Hopefully I’ll get some stuff done soon.
