Dulcie Crochet Sweater Test

Dulcie Sweater 1I was gifted the pattern for the Dulcie Crochet Sweater by Amanda Perkins. I did some test motifs using some Sidar baby yarn and an H hook. I like the way they look. The pattern has three different specially designed and shaped motifs that look like they should fit together nicely. Of course that means I’d actually have to finish the sweater to find out. But! The upside is the motifs could be useful to make other things, too. Like a table runner or a light shawl or something.

I like the Sirdar. I got it in a bag of yarn someone gave me and I only have the two skeins. I hope I have something of similar weight in my stash to continue once I finish these two skeins!

Birthday Cake

Fudge Birthday Cake

This coma inducing thing was my birthday cake. Those globs on top are solid fudge, and the icing is fudge about a quarter inch thick! :O It’s a chocolate cake inside, with coconut (german chocolate) filling (the same thing that’s on the top). One slice is enough to put you on a sugar buzz for hours. And it was served up with triple chocolate brownie ice cream. I may not sleep again…

Rainbow

RainbowToday’s Square: Rainbow
Size: 8 inch
Pattern By: Jean Leinhauser
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic RHSS red, pumpkin, yellow, light green, turqua, amethyst.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: This square was a bit disappointing in that it’s just your basic everyday 3dc shell granny square. It’s from the “50 Fabulous Crochet Squares” book, and considering the stature of the designer, I was expecting there to be some kind of twist. The only twist is my usual swirl when I make grannies without turning. Even though I don’t usually, I made the pattern using the colors specified instead of my own. I guess that must’ve been the “pattern”.

86 of 99

86 of 99

Today’s Square: 86 of 99
Size: 6 inch
Pattern By: Sarah J. Green
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic RHSS red, turqua; Caron Colour Perfect slate blue.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: A nice little octagon motif. Using worsted weight with an H hook, all those clusters are jammed in there! I had to enlarge the starting loop in order to get them all in. I changed the last round to HDC from SC and I think it defined the shape much better. It’s dense and solid so I’m using it as a coaster! From the “99 Granny Squares to Crochet” book.

Pretty and Tasty, Too.

Jelly Belly jelly beans

For my upcoming birthday my cousin sent me this tin of Jelly Belly jelly beans. Not only are they tasty, but they’re pretty to look at, too. But not so pretty as to stop me from eating big helpings of them…

10 of 99

10 of 99Today’s Square: 10 of 99
Size: 8 inch
Pattern By: Carole Prior
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic RHSS Ocean, turqua; mystery yarn cadet blue.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: I’ve been lax on crocheting lately, but it’s time for doing my monthly CAL squares so I thought I’d best get on it! This square is easy to do. I changed the last round to a solid DC with 2DC, CH2, 2DC in the corners. All the chain 5 loops could be made into CH4 I think, if you wanted a less loopy square. This is from the “99 Granny Squares to Crochet” book.
