Jolly Roger Finished-for now.

I finished the Jolly Roger sweater today. I did short sleeves for now because I wanted it finished before tomorrow so I could wear it. I plan on adding more rounds to make them longer later. And I can always wear a shirt with sleeves under it. Also it fits hubby too! And now he is wanting an orange one with a white skull. :-)

Bad Storms

I didn't get much accomplished today due to bad weather and having to keep an eye on the news.

I did manage a few rows on the Jolly Roger sweater but that's about it. I am hoping to have it finished by this weekend...and hoping that I have enough yarn to do so.

Thunderstorm and progress

Last night we had a few storms going through and I couldn't sleep...sooo...I finally started on the Jolly Roger Sweater pattern from the Stitch 'N B***h The Happy Hooker crochet book. It is coming along quickly and I cant wait to wear it this weekend. However, it I dont like the way it fits me, I will let hubby have it. He is tall and skinny and can wear anything. Lol.
I am also working on a few beanies for some friend's kids and future grandkids. Tiny cuteness!

K's Dress

After about two weeks, I finally finished K's dress. I couldn't find an "A" pattern/applique so I made it up as I went. I also made two hairclips. A flower and a bow. She will be receiving them tomorrow at church. Hope it fits well and she likes it.
Roughly 20" around at chest and also about 20" in length from top to bottom. I think she is about 18months.
I will share more finished projects tomorrow.

Progress On Deep-V Top

Ok. It is pretty much finished...just have the sleeves to do. However, this did not turn out how I thought it would. Compared to the picture with the pattern, it should definitely be longer...Sooo there may not be a pic of it. It may even end up frogged. :-(

Poor Memphis

So Memphis went to the doc for her checkup. End up she has an ear infection. She does not want to take her meds. Just spits it back out. Hope I am atleast getting some down her. Even tried one of those medicine nipple things. She is breastfed so she has no idea what to do with it. Just chews on it. Oh well. We had no idea she had an infection. She wasnt being fussy or anything so maybe it will go away soon. She goes back to the doc in 2 weeks and will get her shots then too if its cleared up. Poor baby. Love her!

Deep-V Top

I have started the Deep-V Top. I found it on Ravelry and I am hoping I have enough black yarn. But incase I don't, I am going to probably incorporate some orange and white into it as well. Cant go wrong with those colors in our house!! :-)
Here is the link but you have to sign up at Bernat to see it.

I am also working on some Tennessee vests for my boys to go along with Memphis' dress.

WIP-Tennessee dress and "T" filet applique.

Here is where I got to last night before putting it down. The simple shells were too monotonous at that time of night. So I then started a filet crochet "T" to place on the front of Peyton's dress.
The dress looks like it could double as a cheerleading outfit, so I might add some orange in the skirt like the pleats of color in a real one.
