Mix it up....

I have been experimenting with joining my crafts lately. I don't know what it is about packing that makes me want to go crazy and craft. But the thought of locking up all my supplies for possibly a few months has got me chomping at the bit to do a lot of something. So crochet/knit/sew it is. And in any form I can get it.

This little dress for Sophie was a quick day project. And yes I made it up as I went along, which as you know is the way I like to do things around here. She even kept it on for like 2 hours. But I think maybe that's because it took her that long to figure out how to get it off. haha...And yes I am aware that my daughter is severely lacking in the hair accessories dept. But as you can imagine by how hard it is to keep clothes on her. Bows or ribbons of any sort is pretty dang near impossible. So if she is known throughout blog land as that messy haired kid I guess I will have to be ok with that...:)




 And then after working the Aviatrix last week and realizing how insanely easy it is to pick up stitches for knitting I had a go at a crochet beanie with a knit trim...Love it!!! I really think the two textures work well together. Opens my mind up to all sorts of possibilities.....


And for those who are curious about the granny square top, I will write up a quick tute soon. It's a little bit more involved then just sticking to squares together but not much so keep an eye out for that if you are curious...Hope you are all having a good week, 4 left before we are on our way to Texas......
