For Sydney




I dont know why, but I seem to work better under pressure. I dont ENJOY working that way, but I am more productive. I have had Sydney's outfit half done for WEEKS but just decided yesterday that I HAD to finish it since her birthday is next week. So here it is....the Pretty in Pink Sundress and Hat from the Simple Crochet for Cherished Babies book. (If you click the link and scroll down, you will find they show some pages from the book and you can pick up a pattern free! ) I used Cotton Plus and a G hook instead of DK weight yarn and and E hook so its heavier but I like the easy care of the yarn. The shrug I designed myself....I thought the dress needed a LITTLE something so you could dress it up or down. I think its a perfect add on.
Not sure what the next project will be...maybe something for ME? :)
ETA: The outfit was a hit.....especially the shrug. She put it on Sydney right away and she wore it for the rest of the party. Everyone thought it was so cute. I havent seen any patterns for baby shrugs so I just might have to write it down and share it. :)

Crochet, Away!
