An evening and morning crochet-a-thon


This little dress I designed on the fly, and it took FOUR freaking hours to finish!!! ARGHHHHH!

 
 
If I had to do it all over again I would have chosen a thicker yarn, but I absolutely love the look of the stitches with the thinner wool yarn.  I believe it will fit a newborn to about 2 months old.  I wish I had a baby to try it on.  Not having a pattern gives me creative freedom, but definitely has its down falls.


I also made this little shrug this morning.  Only took about 1 1/2 hours, and it is amazingly soft.


Sam was GRACIOUS enough to try it on for me so I could gauge the size (yet again no pattern...LOL)



I think since it is a bit snug on him it will be for a 3-4 Toddler size.

Thanks for looking~

OH MY GOD! I am in love.

I can't believe what you can do with a crochet hook.

Really, LOVE.

I'm talented? Nooooo... you're talented! I love that dress. Beautiful! Plus, the one you commented on today was the picture from lion brand. I haven't made mine yet. :) I'm just finding a pattern a day, and giving myself 3 years to make all 365 things. It's a challenge in completion! haha I have finished a few of the things already - but working full time makes it difficult!
