    I did finish a skein working on the dress to go with my doilyghan but it means I ran out of my Aran yarn - have to find another colour to finish the set. I have started on a dolly blankie that is semi mindless. Foto Friday: I have to decide if it is worth a -20 to replace my Aran yarn. I like to have it on hand decisions, decisions Ya know- if it is their intention to make emoticons so difficult to use that we just stop; it's working

    the start of my first baby set for the year. It is to be a stroller set but I'm afraid it is too holey to be effective. it is def summer weight. I'm working on a dress/ pinafore and a hat.

    I know how big I have to make them but that is from years of making them Basically wrap it around the waist to get the size and then reduce by about 1/2 an inch

    I find skirts to be the quickest and easy to fit My "Sisters" pattern is easy and should give you a good idea of fit. either skirt is good to go.

    I believe that this is the greatest of all charitable work we crocheters can do. I imagine the feelings of those dear parents when they find that some unknown soul has prepared for their moment of crisis. It would surely reduce their grief just a bit to know of such generosity. The moment I heard of this ministry I had to make at least one set and send it off. I wish that I could do more of them and I suppose I could now that my hands have become more accustomed to working with SW yarn.

    Target (if you wish to go there) still sell their "Our Generation" dolls. they seem to have gone up in price - now starting at $35.00 USD My first 18" doll was an 'Our Generation" girl and I still use her all the time. Elspeth:
