  1. Your set is cute, and I love the "mommy and me" idea!
  2. Thank you all for all of you lovely comments. I am very grateful to Apak for sharing her awesome butterfly pattern. It was hard to give this blankie away, but I know it is in a good home, with a special baby.
  3. Wow, lots of Memphis People! (I'm in the Cordova area now, so in the suburbs.) Stash (in the Cooper Young district of Midtown) and Yarniverse (off medenhall and Poplar) are still going strong. There was a very nice yarn store on Poplar, near the Union Ext. interchange, but it has closed. However, I have found a local yarn store (while still "knitting strong") has been very helpful and kind with helping me find yarns suitable for crochet projects. It is Rainbow yarn and fibers in Germantown. It is in the area of Methodist Germantown Hospital at 1980 Exeter Rd, Germantown. The ladies there are so friendly and *gasp* even were interested in the crochet tie bib (that I devised) for my son! I LOVE the BBQ-Central BBQ (in Midtown) is my favorite KarenC
  4. Here is one example of how I have used this FANTASTIC pattern, on a baby blanket: Here is the post: http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?p=2350123#post2350123
  5. Here is a crib sized blanket, made for a special little girl. The mom was thrilled with the blankie (and I love how it turned out too.) It was a stashbuster that (originally was going to just be a pink v-stich, but I had less pink yarn than I thought, but it turned out EVEN BETTER!!!!) The blanket is made in Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice Baby yarn with a 5 mm hook. The pink is a v-stitch, the boarder is sc, ch1, sc (then opposite in the next row: ch1, sc, ch1). The butterfly is Apak's butterfly pattern, which totally makes this blanket extra special: http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=105231&highlight=butterfly
  6. Your necktie is so lovely. I think I will have to whip one up for myself (I love these scarfetts in the winter...sometimes, much to my husband's dismay, I have been caught wearing one to bed.)
  7. Your daughter looks so lovely in her cute dress! You can tell she's excited to wear it by the way she is posing. :-)
  8. So frilly and girly. It is very lovely. :-D
  9. A beautiful hat and a DARLING little girl. :-D
  10. Here are two blue sweaters I made, mainly because I wanted to try the patterns. They are both made from Bernat Baby Solids/marls (the jumbo 16 oz skein from Walmart, I got this one on clearance, and there is a LOT of yarn it, probably at least enough for two more sweaters!!!.)The pea coat will be for if my friend has a boy, and the other one doesn't have a home in mind, so will probably go with my donations for the pregnancy crisis center. (As will the pea coat if my friend has a girl!) Pea coat: http://www.innerchildcrochet.com/patterns/david_peacoat.php Twin Stitch Coat: http://danettesangels.tripod.com/patterns/twinstitchset.html
  11. Everything is so lovely. I particularity love the combination you used for the sleeper set. I am glad to know that this precious baby arrived healthily, and she and her family will be in our prayers!
  12. Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl! :-) She looks adorable in her hat, and the booties are cute too.
