Anyhow I went to a local market on Saturday and found a wonderful wool stall with lots of beautiful ´4ply´ wool. I couldn´t just walk by without buying at least one ball so I thought what the hell I´ll just do more rows and work with a smaller hook right?
Here is a photo of what the yarn became...
Birthday present for my fiance´s niece Lena, who is turning 1 on May 7th. Axel bought her the Pipi Longstocking (German Version) t-shirt to go with it!
I´ve made a few baby jacket/cardigans like this using the usual yummy 8ply and they work out a treat. There is a pattern on Yarn Days blog for these top-down baby cardigans. I originally got the pattern from a crochet book but having left it in Australia had to go looking online for another pattern. Actually I hope Rima from Yarn Days will join us here. She always posted photos of her beautiful work on Granny Along. I miss her postings there.
Hope you are all well and ready to start posting about your crochet adventures. I have another baby cardigan that I´m working on at the moment but I´ll leave that for another time. I always seem to crochet more when in Germany... hmmm
Anyhow have a lovely weekend and keep the 'I want to join' emails comming!!!!!
