Crochet Bag Exchange Bag

Here is a picture of my bag from Nadine. She also sent me a crochet Snowman, a ceramic thimble and post cards from Long Lake, New York. Long Lake sounds like a nice quiet place to live and spend time. Maybe one day I can make it out that way.

I've got stuff in my bag and even took it to Lowe's tonight. It holds a skein of yarn along with my wallet and keys REALLY well. There was even room for Michelle's snack and toy.

Granny Square Bag

The colors for Project Spectrum: April & May are Pink, Yellow, & Green. I have had fun working with these colors. The crochet bag group that I belong to is doing a Spring bag exchange and I just couldn't resist using my bright spring colors.
The bag is done with Lion Micro spun in Buttercup, Lime, Mango, Fuchsia, and Turquoise. The 2 small dish cloths where knitted with Peaches & Cream Lemon-Lime and the doily is done with DMC cotton #10 thread. The doily pattern cam from Crochet Pattern Central and is called "My First Doily". I had no troubles doing the doily and it took me about a day. (After I redid what some one small tore out that is)

Project Spectrum 2.0: Daisy

I just finished up this hat from Itty Bitty Hats by Susan B. Anderson. The hat is in the newborn size and will fit on a 15-18 inch doll. There are many wonderful hats in her book as well as a simple rolled brim hat pattern.

Project Spectrum 2.0: Doll Cloths

I found a doll cloths pattern here. The pattern includes a jacket shirt and pants. I am going to knit them out of Lion Microspun in Lime, Buttercup, and Fuchsia. The doll cloths will be for a Build-a-Bear dog instead of a doll. Since the pants are done in two parts it shouldn't be too hard to leave a space for the tail. I also think the jacket looks like a Baby Knit Surprise by Elizabeth Zimmermann.

Crochet Doily

I got some DMC Traditions crochet thread from Wal-Mart on Tuesday. It is # 5109 which is a verigated yellow, pink, green, & blue. I think it was the green & pink that caught my attention. I use the Octagon Dishcloth. I only did 8 of the 9 rounds with a size 10 steel hook. I still need to go and block it so the edges lay down flat and ad some starch so it stays flat.
