More of My Angel

For once, finishing a 'goal' didn't make me put a project away for who-knows-how-long. Angel of Grace has kept my extremely short attention span long enough to get both of the left overskirts done, and the first section of the green overskirt on the right. It's divided up by a purple ribbon/streamer, so it's easy enough to call it a section. Also got a bit of the pink/white underskirt done.



You can see how much of it I had done in the post... um, two below this one, I think.

I've taken her off the q-snaps and put Mulberry House back on, but all I've done so far is look at it. Maybe I'll go back to Gracie... I find myself enamoured of the greens on her dress; on the pattern pic they looked like a washed-out bronze-green, but IRL they are very rich, velvety shades. The gold is kind of mustard-bronze, which I'm not as fond of, but it blends nicely enough so I'm not changing it.


On the crocheting side, I've finished up some more baby jackets. I'm trying to use up stash yarn - this one took every bit of a small amount of bright pink that I had, and I needed to make white sleeves. I have just enough pink yarn that I could put a row of pink sc on a white hat if I decide to make one to match.





Sorry the pic is so small, but it was the dead of night and my camera is lousy, so I had to back halfway across the room so the flash wouldn't wash the color completely out.


I've also finished a green jacket, but I'm going to make a matching hat (and possibly bloomers) before I post a pic of it.

Jacket & Afghan

I made this afghan for my Mum for Mother's Day - the dye lots for the rose-mauve color were exactly the same, number-wise, but obviously something was wrong somewhere. Fortunately, you can only see the difference with the camera flash. With daylight and regular house-lights, the colors look exactly the same. Still, it's a bit irritating and I'm not sure I'll buy this yarn again.
Though, I'll admit, it was nice and soft and very easy to work with :D


I made this baby jacket and hat to give to my friend Sarah, who made a matching afghan. They're for her friend, who has a little boy due on the 20th of May. I think they came out really cute! I haven't made a baby jacket in long time.

Angel of Grace update

I've been working on my Angel of Grace, and I've finished her wings (at least, to the right of her, there's a bit of a wing showing on the left that I haven't done yet)
I've also finished an afghan and a baby jacket; I'll post pics of them tomorrow.
