Tomato


I knit the Tomato sweater from "No Sheep For You" in size Medium. From the first time I saw the pattern, I knew I'd be knitting it. The yarn is Cotton Ease, my first time using it and I really enjoyed working with it. Terracotta (4 skeins) and Almond (1 skein) on size 7 circulars. My only modification was to add a few rows here and there. My row gauge was slightly off. Now I have to wait until spring to wear it. :)

Elegant Lace Poncho


I had this yarn in my stash (4 skeins brushed acrylic) and my daughter kept telling me how soft it was so I made her a poncho. The pattern is Elegant Lace by Dot Matthews. I used sport weight yarn and an F hook to make it a bit smaller for my 2 year old. It's still a little big but she will grow into it.

Cluster Stitch Sweater



I completely forgot I had made this sweater back in January. It is based on the Parisienne Twin Set in the May 2006 issue of Crochet! magazine. I loved the stitch but didn't want to make a spaghetti strap top so I kind of combined the top pattern with the cardigan pattern. I also didn't have enough yarn to make long sleeves. Just love the edging though!
The yarn is Knit Picks Merino Style (DK weight) in Hollyberry with an F hook. Nine skeins were used.

And Toto Too?

My daughter is fascinated with "The Wizard of Oz" so my husband, being the doting father that he is, has searched high and low for any figurines. He found a set on Ebay with Dorothy, The Scarecrow, The Tin Man, The Lion, The Good Witch, and The Wicked Witch. Do you think that's enough? No, he asked that I make a basket and Toto for the Dorothy doll. This thing is tiny but I never pass up a challenge.


Ain't he cute?

The basket was made from size 10 crochet thread, US 7 needle. The dog is a mini amigurumi made from size 30 thread, US 10 needle.
