2 crafty. 2 many ideas. 2 much yarn. 2 many pattern books. 2 many craft supplies collecting dust. Time to get moving. Past time to define myself. This begins my journey.

Crochet: Hexagon Granny Baby Jacket
Several times while looking for crochet patterns I've come across this really cute baby sweater. I took the time to look for the pattern, and I printed the one from Bev's Country Cottage. She refers to the pattern she found on Tina's Blogspot. But I'm still not sure who the originator of this design is. It's so versatile and the color combinations are endless. This is my first attempt, and I'm sure I'll be making more. I had some problems with the ribbed cuffs, so I ended up with a ruffle instead. I repeated the ruffle around the collar and bottom to complete the effect. I also chose to use tie closures instead of buttons. I was pleased with the final product. The pink and purple are Bernat Satin - one of my favorite yarns. The variegated is Bernat Softee Baby. I'm hoping whoever ends up with this sweater feels extra special. This is a contribution to the charity I volunteer for - Online Angels.
