Some pattern links and new projects...

*Update 8-3-08* Momma finished it! You can go to her blog for more details.

Ok, new stuff first...

Momma asked for a bag made of robin's egg blue and red granny squares. This is what I came up with. I couldn't find a pattern that I liked, so I just made it up as I went. It's 5 granny squares crocheted into a circle with 3 rows of hdc on the top half. Then I crocheted the bottom separately and attached it with a slip stitch through the back loops only to the granny squares. If anyone's interested in the pattern, I can maybe turn my chicken scratch into something meaningful. Momma's going to line it and add quilted handles. I'll show you the finished product when she's done :)

Next, a future Christmas present...

I'm using pattern #31 from 111 Easy Edgings (by Leisure Arts) which is actually for crochet thread and a tiny hook. I'm using KnitPicks Palette in the Rasberry Heather (which is not very pink, but more red with a yellow goldish heathering in it) and an E hook. It's turning out so pretty and dainty and I think it'll be perfect for my sis-in-law.

Ok, and your pattern links for these pretties...

Ok, here are the pattern specs and links:

*I changed this pattern so I could use and H hook by switching every ch 3 in the pattern to a ch 2*

That's it for now! Have a great weekend everybody!
