April crochet…

Well the rain and the snow finally stopped for a little while and the sunshine made a cameo appearance last week.

It seems more rain and freezing temperatures are on there way again!  But, the sunshine certainly influenced my hooking last  week and I took my hook alfresco whenever I could.  crochet al frescoI have also enjoyed getting back outdoors and walking the dogs now my foot has finally healed.

Of course there were pit stops along the way!

Not much has occurred on the knitting front, in fact it would be fairer to say nothing has happened.  I am enjoying my hooking far too much to be slowed down by needles and I have a couple of commissions that I really must finish.  One of which I can now show you…

I loved making these little baby shorts. 

The pattern is by Mon Petit Violon Designs and I will definitely be hooking some more.  I used Rico baby cotton soft yarn in a dk weight and a denim blue and finished them off with some little wooden buttons. Rico was a lovely yarn to hook with and has given a beautiful stitch definition to the garment.  Of course it is soft enough for babies skin also and machine washable. 

Finally, I just wanted to say a BIG thank you to everyone who has given me such encouraging feedback across my social media about the Sunshine Jelly Baby Blanket…

It has really made me smile. 

Have a good week what ever you get up to

  1. All of your projects are so beautiful. Just makes me want to get that hook out and continue on my spicier life blanket. Glad to hear that your foot is all healed and you are getting out and enjoying the nice weather. We had a couple of really nice, warm, sunny days, but I didn’t get to enjoy them. Now it is rainy the last few days. But Spring is coming. I see buds on the trees 🙂

  2. Wonderful to hear that your foot is healed. Every time I see your crochet photos I get itchy….I’m actually looking forward to moving now- smaller garden- more time for crochet!
