Rag Rug, Love it!

Here is a picture of my frenchie on my rag rug! Easy to clean, I just shake, wash and dry. A great way to use old sheets or teach a child to crochet. You could make also make placemats.
tutorial here
I did take a stitch in the fringe, it randomly  comes off in the wash or dry. I just used machine sewing thread, takes a little time but well worth it.

This sweater is on you tube, and I think it turned out really well and fast too! Will make this again, loved it!

This yarn is so pretty, however it just doesn't show in the picture as well.

Knit Pink Baby Dress

 I have been learning to knit in the round, and their has been a lot of little things to learn. I have unpicked a few times. This pink dress was originally a blessing dress pattern. I used red heart baby love yarn in pink and green and the lavender or purple is
Bernat baby coordinates. I am still thinking about doing the bottom rib over. I might just unpick and do it right, I just purled. I should have knit one row and purled the next, then it would have not rolled. I hope you like this, I am very please how it turned out. I used the pattern from the
Precious Heirloom 
and I just knit instead of the pattern and then an inch and a half before the bottom of the dress and sleeve I knit 4 yo knit 2 together all the way around for three rows. the middle row I shifted 2 stitches. Using the bigger yarn made it more for a 3-6 month old.
