Baby Jacket

Wow I am a terrible blogger. I seem to be driven to crochet for hours for a whole month and I don't want to stop to blog it all.
I am currently persisting my way through Tall Latte by Doris Chan. I am almost finished my third attempt and I am only mildly happy with the results. Don't be surprised if I frog it for a third time. I think I need to go down a size again. I should take a photo and let you all decide what I should do.....
I have also made a shrug for Amelies birthday in August. I just need to weave in the ends and take some photos of her with it on before I blog it.


I made this baby jacket for my niece who has just turned one. The pattern came from "Crochet for Babies" and is called the Soft Shells Jacket. This is the pattern link on Ravelry. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/soft-shells-layette
Anyway, as it is so warm here in QLD I decided to use Bendigo 8ply cotton in the shade of Lavender. It was a well written pattern and the jacket turned out perfectly. It fits like a dream. Sadly I didn't grab a shot of Shannon wearing it. :( I may make one of these for my precious angel as well.

Beautiful jacket. Seeing your work makes me want to learn how to crochet properly - currently my crocheting skills are limited to single crochet to edge knitting or using the hook to pick up stitches on my knitting!
