My cousin, http://www.amybeckey.com/, is an amazing photographer and captured some beautiful images for me. A couple of our 2 kiddos, and one of my friend's baby wearing the hat I crocheted as a gift. The hat pattern is by The Dainty Daisy (see sidebar link) and is a real hit! The purple bear hat is also an order for a photo shoot . . .
I had planned to sew Claire's Easter Dress. Really, I did. Then I was going to make 2 dresses--one with a knitted bodice and one sewn. Really, I was. But I am just dying to try my hand at this one (Interweave Crochet pattern), and my hubby really loves it . . . what's a girl to do?? I'm going to try it, and if all else fails, I'll make a pit stop to Kohl's.
I knitted a hat with this, and I wasn't that thrilled with the results. However, I crocheted one today and it is WOW!!!! I could not be happier with the way the colors just seem to blend and "pop" with this yarn! This is going to make a fabulous newborn photo prop (which is what it's for). So, without further ado . . .
