I’m joining Ginny once again for Yarn Along…
I was setting up the photo this morning (thinking I was very organised getting it all done nice and early) when I was intercepted by a small girl who added her book and her dolls to the photo too…
…then began to wreck havoc add to my crochet:
(The dolls in the background are known as The Gentle Dolls in our house (I’ll add a post about them shortly, the deserve one of their own))
The book I’m reading is
The Right Brain Business Plan by Jennifer Lee
(well, more dipping in and out of it when I get a minute) and Grace is reading
Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers
(she never tires of these stories- we have three based around this boy and we read them over and over, and she loves the fact there is a penguin (or as she says: pen-goo-in) in some of them)
The crochet? Well, I finished the scarf (I won’t add it here, as I’ve already gone over my one photo quota) and I’m very happy with it! So I began something else. Still don’t have a clue what I will make with this one (although Grace has decided it is a blanket for the Gentle Dolls, I’m more veering towards another scarf or a bag. And besides, she has robbed back my dishcloth that I won from Gail and is using that as a blanket for these dolls)
Any ideas?? I will be very bold and add just one more photo, and any suggestions will be gratefully received!!
I love Grace’s additions to your photo! The crochet is beautiful, I would tend to use it as a medallion on a bag or scarf or something like that, if I knew how to crochet (LOL)!
I don’t know what I would do with it… a trivet maybe? But I LOVE the colours!
Hi Emily that is beautiful crochet. I don’t think you need any suggestions or ideas,you are doing great. Take a holday! because you’re worth it. Helen (Lil)
Oh I totally see that as a bag! A really hip, vintage shoulder bag! The colors are so cool!! And I totally had to laugh at your crossed out wording, you’re a such a good momma!!
I agree with Gail…it should definately be added to a bag or something. That way it could shine as the centerpiece because it’s just beautiful. The colors are great.
There is something about your Irish crochet that I absolutely love – the colors and the way you can arrange it all into something stunning – and something I hate – that I am not able to do the same! I get stuck if I have to do something that is not symetrical or orderly. Maybe someday i will let my inner chaos-baby out to play!
Beautiful work -can’t wait to see what you do with this one (as well as the last project: hint, hint)
I don’t know what I would make with it but it is so lovely I might just hang it on a wall and look at it. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by my blog, Emily. I replied there with a bit more on the stitch and I can find the link to the pattern if you want. I’m following you on Facebook, because I’d love to hear more about homeschooling in Ireland. We homeschooled our kids and my daughter is starting with our granddaughters.
