I love Bernat Yarn, I just do. This yarn is so soft and never let me down in any of my projects so far, not that I ‘m crocheting that much but you know what I mean. It took me a while to get used t Canadian yarns or should I say Canadian/American yarn, though after a few tryouts I became such a fan of some a them, to the point that well let’s just say a big fan of them.
So my lovely neighbour came home early 2015 to say they were pregnant with twins, I guess we were, one of, the first to know because just were coming back from the doctor.
All the year went by and whenever I thought of a gift I knew I had to make a crochet jacket for them, I don´t know it is j the way it is supposed to be, after all we were one of the firs to know.
So of course her water broke before expected, and once again of course I hadn’ t made anything yet: too much work a promotion at work, learning a new position all that got in the away. Then we went back home in the summer I could go on and on and on. I had to do it for Christmas when they would be 3 months being premature. I don’t know about you but to me half of the fun is choosing the pattern, and f course not following it and finding out ways to finish off. With all that being taken care of I made them these cute little things.

Their Mom almost passed out, and I was so glad she understood that handmade gifts have love in every piece of their way, love in every stitch.
I am incorrigible for loving colours so much! As a little girl I’ve always loved rainbows, lucky me back then it really rained nearly every afternoon in my hometown. When it didn’t and it happened to be a Saturday, Dad would remedy the situation by either washing the dog or the car, or both, and spraying water into the air so as if to make us see the rainbow he had so artistically not to say magically created right there before our very own eyes. Back then we didn’t have to save the planet nor water. I guess there were not as many people in the world as my (now 9 year-old) daughter says: “Back in the olden days”, I try to explain 30 something years ago is not classified as “olden days”, but I don’t think she gets it, would I?
So anyway this is the gift I made for her friend, another sweet little girl from school, intended for her birthday, which was last month…
It is light and kind of small just to carry the ‘essentials’, lined with small little butterflies to flutter by whenever she opens it to fetch this or that. Sure hope she likes it.
As I was once again browsing some seriously beautiful crochet, and crafts sites I came across this one and the site is Magic with hook and needles adorable!
I showed my daughter, because now she is 8 and of course needs a larger purse whenever she is on a spree with her daddy.
I absolutely loved this one though she asked me to make some changes, she is right not only because she is not a grown up but most importantly I like to give things my personal touch. So I followed the multi color idea, the ‘patchwork’ kind of style, I adored the colours she initially used so I stuck to them and changed some little thing here and there, it is almost coming to an end, so take a peak before I go ahead and do the lining.

I have to take more pics and show you on Sunday hopefully, and have to go now,
As I move on my new job, it seems to me I have little time to dedicate to my crochet blogs, though I still save some for my crochet adventures, which include a pineapple top -for myself to wear at work, and the completion of my daughter’s pineapple crochet tee.
I am triyng to figure out a way to take a picture of my top it is nice lacy and black, since I left my mannequim back home in Brazil, I have to find out how to give you an idea of how it looks, meanwhile take a look at the last and final version of the tee.
I Liked this edging for its A line kind of shaping, that I secured would be formed by adding a few more chain stitches and a sort of a V in the row prior to the last one.
I made a flower to go with it and it was a wonderful opportunity for me to make some use of this cute buttom I purchased a long time long ago.
I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it, and I followed no pattern since I changed a gazzilion times to accomodate her mood changes and mine as well.
I decided it was time for me to find a little job, and do something in crochet too! I am working again and at the same time want to take advantage of the Summer and work on this project. So I tried this edging to finish up a crochet tee for my daughter.
I didn’t like the final result. It seemed to tighten up her waist and she already is slim. I thought about not only undo the top part of it as well as the edging, I believe it will look way better, but before I unraveled everything I decided to show you, the edging pattern is really nice but not for what I intended. For the tee I don’t have any patten it is just “poping up my mind”
Pattern for the edging:
You will realize I changed the shells I didn’t work the 3 dc cluster, instead I did 2 dc 1ch 2dc.
Then I’ll just go back to my crochet and hope i can come back here with a better final project!
