A Plethora of Works-in-Progress

First up, two finished projects, made for my soon-to-be-in-this-world niece, called, for now, Snoopy. A Baby Surprise sweater made from Dale Ulla in several shades of pink, and red and cream. I chose the buttons at Brooklyn General Store, where they have a small but very choice selection. I also added the pink single-crochet border to try to correct some of the natural wonkiness of the pattern:

Also completed for Snoopy, a cheerful baby ripple made of Knitpicks Shine Worsted:

In progress, a Giant Granny from remnants of Elizabeth Lavold Silky Wool (looooove those saturated colors, and the yarn works up beautifully on a little size C crochet hook):

And finally, granny squares in Rowan Cotton Glace remnants, very muted oranges, greens, and creams:


  1. All pretty! *Love* the glace granny, choice choice for the header!

  2. i just bought a book of crochets projects - you are an inspiration. Hope the stormy weather passes.

  3. I love those beautifully subtle colours in the granny squares.

  4. Amanda, thanks! I'm really into orange lately...

    Carnalis, crocheting is so wonderful and meditative. Sometimes I prefer it to knitting, depending on my mood. I am absolutely ADDICTED to crocheted ripples in a gazillion colors...

    nick, thank you and I'm glad you stopped by!

  5. Holy Molly. How beautiful is everthing! Job well done, as always.
