Finished projects!

I finished the tunic!


Diamond Lace Crochet Tunic
The Pattern is here.

I made the tunic longer and also made the neck opening smaller. I love it! (*^^*)
I used the Lion Brand's Baby Soft in color "Melon", instead of the Wool Ease Sportweight which the pattern calls for, but I think it was OK. The tunic is so soft and light. (^^)
I really should have used a bigger hook than US H (5mm) though... I was following large size numbers to accomplish medium size, but the tunic came out a little smaller than medium. (-_-;) It is more "fitting" than I normally feel comfortable.... oh well.
Also when I decreased stitches around the neck opening, I made a mistake, and there were some gaps..... so after everything else is done, I slip-stitched double crochet stitches into those gaps. Is it obvious? (^^;

For Valentine's Day, I made Hubby this.


This is "Ribbed Ski Hat", one of Dot's wonderful creations. He had asked me to make him one like this to wear when he g…

Dishsoap Pinafore

I had to take a break from the tunic, and I made this one. (*^^*)


The pattern is from freepatterns.com, and it is a PDF file. I made this with size 10 thread, and I crocheted the little rose instead of putting the one sold at stores.
First of all, I want to thank those who gave me suggestions for the new title of my blog. Each suggestions made me smile. You all are wonderful! (^^)
I think I know what the new title will be, but I just sent a question e-mail about moving a blog to Blogger people so I'm not going to make any changes to my blog until I hear from them. I just want to avoid making any of my visitors lost trying to find my blog since all of you have been so kind to me. (*^_^*)

Also I so appreciate everyone who sent me wishing-well e-mails and left me kind comments. My son and I are doing better today, and I think I can get up and bake a Valentine cake! Hehe.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I wish all of you a ...

RAOK package has arrived!

I've been stuck in the house for more than a week now. (>_<) My son and I cough so much so hard, and I feel like it'll never go away. I so hate cough medicine too, but I have no choice but to take it, plus migraine hits me today. So.... you can tell now... how miserable I've been feeling... with my 4 yr-old all bored, jumping and running around in the house too! (;_;) Then... the mailman knocks the door... with a package addressed to me, and "RAOK" was written on it!!!!!!! I opened it, with my son, and there were some most WONDERFUL things from a Crochetville fairy!

A kind and cute letter(Sanrio letter set) and 2 crocheted snowflake booklets!!! And no, my fairy, I didn't have these. (*^^*) Actually, I didn't have any snowflake pattern books. Our Christmas tree is going to be full of crocheted snowflakes this year!

...And the cutest book thong with a cat face bead, and 4 beautiful stitch markers, which I have been wanting sooooo much!!! I didn't h…

WIP : Diamond Lace Crochet Tunic

I saw this beautiful tunic Lori made, and I just couldn't resist. This pattern is from Lion Brand's web site, and it was to use with Wool-Ease sportweight. So I went, 60 miles from where I live to the NEAREST Michaels, but they didn't have sportweight Wool-Ease so instead, I bought Lion Brand Baby Soft in color "Melon".




When I saw this yarn at Michael's, it looked just like it does on the above photo, but under bright sunlight, it looks very PINK. (^^; I thought about returning the yarn, but after asking Hubby his opinion, I just decided to keep it. (^_^) My blog is pink, and I make lots of pink things, but nothing I wear or I have is pink. I'm always in blue boot-cut/flare jeans and black/gray/light blue/brown top. So this tunic is going to be my very first outfit in bright color! I know my son will like me wearing it because you know, little children always like bright colors. (^^)
Anyways, I think this diamond lace pattern is very beautiful, a…
