Odds and Ends

Just a bit of updating here today!

I had taken a class at the conference in NH with Dee Stanziano called Crochet Your Knits.  She showed us how to use the crochet hook to manipulate its placement in the stitches to mimic real garter stitches.  I hadn't monkeyed with it too much since I got home from the conference, but when my niece was here last month, she mentioned that one of her friends (12 yrs old!) has leukemia, and would be going thru chemo.  So I took her to AC Moore's and had her pick out some yarn in colors she thought her friend would like, and then I would make some hats for her. 

These are what I came up with.  

The green one uses almost all stitching from Dee's class.  I couldn't remember the neat way she showed us how to join the rounds so it wouldn't show.  I didn't have any of the paperwork from class handy, so....traditional joins.

The green and pink one doesn't use any from the class, just "regular" stitches.

The pink one has a center section of stitches from the class.


Missyboo was gracious enough to model these for me.  Sometimes she has the patience of a saint!

I received a note from a lady on Ravelry who thought she might have found my christening dress pattern, and she was right!!!  It wasn't in the exact same book that I once used to own, but it was definitely found!  Yay!  It's in Annie's Attic book, Annie's Favorite Baby Projects.  Beautifully designed by Emma Jones.  So...if anyone knows Emma, or Emma, if you read this, please send me a note!

On a different note, I just heard today that Lily Chin will be teaching a seminar around the time of the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival!  Woohoo!  I'm going to have to check that one out for sure!!!!  I'll let you know what I find out!

Have a good night.  : )

UPDATE:  It's true!  Lily will be teaching several workshops over the course of 4 days, October 16 -19 at Rhinebeck
