Latest projects

Today I finished the little hat to match the sweater. I think I wrote that it's a white DK yarn with little sprinkles of blue, green, yellow and peach. I changed the sleeve ribbing and the button/neck band to yellow. I still need to decide on buttons. The citrus colored ones that I though might work are just too bright, and a little large. The tulips, in pink, yellow and purple would look great, but they think that the baby is a boy; so I'd like something different. I'll keep looking, I do love buttons! Next I'm thinking of making a yellow hat with the white/multicolor for the ribbing.

Today, while thinking about the books and projects for the display, I spent time browsing some books I haven't looked at recently. I found a great purse, the Fat Bottom Bag, in the Stitch N Bitch Crochet, The Happy Hooker. I even had yarn in stock that works perfectly. The pattern calls for Lion Brand cotton, and I had some Cotton-Ease (a cotton blend), in a faded denim/periwinkle shade. It'll make a great everyday bag. I even had two packages of purse handles in the stash, so I have a set of round bamboo handles that'll be great. I'm about half finished already, so I should be able to finish tomorrow while hubby is at a Scout activity all day and I have the house to myself.
