I hope those of you who celebrated this week had a lovely Canada Day and Fourth of July! My kids are so funny, they preferred running around with friends to sitting and watching the fireworks. I’m not sure either one really watched them. I guess everyday glow sticks are more fun than giant explosions of colored fire in the sky (go figure). Regardless, a good time was had by all. I spent some of my downtime this week working on this adorable Crochet Petal Princess Set. Aren’t the colors perfect? I think I am really crushing on Peach this summer. And of course gray. Always gray.
I used DMC Woolly for this cute booties and hat set. It’s super soft and squishy, perfect for baby things. It’s also a lighter weight yarn than I am used to using, and it was absolutely perfect for this project. Worsted will always be a favorite of mine, but this #3 weight really shows the pretty textures of the stitches, especially those gorgeous shells! It works wonderfully for such a tiny project like baby booties and baby hats (and the tiny petals on the booties).
DMC Woolly has a wide variety of colors as well. I admit, I took quite a while choosing colors for this project. That pretty peachy pink has my heart!
