Last week I had some problems with my crocheted Baby Kimono and some of you tried to help me and offer advice so first off, Thank You! However I just could not figure it out so I frogged the whole thing. Then luck came along and on my trip to Ollie's Outlet Store I found this book (only $4). I love this book! So many patterns are going to be favorites I think. The only part I dislike is the seaming but I don't like sewing up at all so that isn't the books fault.
Inside was this pattern. So cute and almost just what I was going for. It only needed a few modifications, like the sleeves were too girly (need something for either gender) and it was too short in the belly part.
In the end I think it may be a bit too big for a newborn-3 month old but 4-6 months should do it. Here is a pic of the whole set. Little Mittens, Booties, Kimono and Hat.
"Midget" let me borrow her Glass Doll, which is the size of a real baby, to try the baby set on. Though I think if she had objected I could have done it anyway just on the grounds that it was my toy from when I was a kid first!
The hat was a bit big but should fit by 3 months as well. All that added to the blanket will make a nice Baby Shower gift for the next Mom-to-be in our family. With how long it's taken me though I will have to make a few each year in spare moments just to keep up with the life flow.
I have finished another Corn set on my Cornfield Summer Top. Doesn't look like much got done but with all the lace yo's and such my hands started to hurt after 2 hours. Have to get back to it later.
I found this pattern in another book and I have decided to add it to my YoP list.
Really I am making a substitution for the pig bottle warmer because even as cute as the pig is I can't see anyone actually using it and I want what I make to be useful. This may end up a Christmas Present, it's definatly pretty enough.
Chat again next week!
