I have been looking for this pattern for the longest …FINALLY I was able to get a hold of it - BIG YAY, and left all of my 98789634875687345634 'in progress' projects aside, and started crocheting it with this beautiful Egyptian cotton I got for it :)).
The desidner is Mayumi Kawai , which I adore all of her patterns, so very lovely.
Winter is almost here :) (oh yeh I am super happy about it - it was way too hot in here). Things are so busy around here that I get little to no blogging at all. My creative space has to do mostly with crocheting. This is the only thing I can get done without my tiny one destroying it he he.
I have several new project I want to photo and share with you, but for now - since I am happy about my days getting cooler :) here is few shawls I made finally for myself.
This is just the right time to start making Christmas related gifts :) I started with this tiny one for special tiny baby girl.
I used my latest favorite Pierrot pattern for it and made the following changes for it to fit 3-6 months baby:)
hook size 3. row 6 did as row 5, and row 8 was the last increase.
Sorry for pic quality, it is just so much easier to get it from my phone ;p

I love this challenges weeks, (thanks to Elsie Marley blog :)). It give me just the right push that I need to get started.
Actually, when I first saw the dates I thought I wouldn't be able to join in, since it is our holidays now, but, somehow I did manage to get my sewing/crocheting time each and every night. and I am thankful for that.
Last night, FINALLY, I got to sew what I was planning on sewing first :D.
As usual, not a chance to get a good photo out of this busy working toddler.
I have made this jacket before for my girl, but when I saw this beautiful wool fabric, I knew I will sew it again for my tiny one.
