Remember the crochet top I started? Here it is. I finished it! Yeah! It's a crocheted tunic top designed by Fernanda at FML Crochet. I didn't make it a tunic top though. I made it for my daughter, so it's a little small on my 'partner'. My daughter is smaller and shorter than I am, so it will look longer and better on her. I really like the stitch pattern and design of this pattern. I used Shine Sport yarn from Knit Picks that Fernanda recommended. The name of the color is River. This is a great cotton blend DK weight yarn.
I'll show you why it took me so long to finish this top and why I haven't posted in so long ... well, a couple of the reasons. This is Charlotte Joely and she's 2 months old. She looks so much my daughter when she was born.
And this is Kaitlyn Elaine and she's 5 days old in this photo. She and Charlotte are cousins. When Kaitlyn was 9 days old and Charlotte was 9 weeks old, they were both weighed. Their weights were 2 oz apart. Charlotte was so tiny when she was born. I don't know why, but Kaitlyn seemed smaller to me when I held her ... a lot more than 2 oz!
We spent a week in San Antonio visiting them and trying to help their moms and dads. They are just so sweet. I didn't pick up a crochet hook for the entire week! I keep looking at these pictures and I'm ready to go to San Antonio again!
I have a few things I'd like to work on over the next few weeks. Sewing, crochet and quilting. Now let's see what I actually work on.
Happy Monday Everyone!
