I made A a crocheted collar, using this pattern, although I modified it slightly. I’ve been wanting to make one of these ever since I saw several pictures of them on Pinterest months ago, but I just finally got around to it. It was a quick and very satisfying project, and A loves it (it looks quite fabulous over her pj’s – I can’t wait to see it on an actual dress!) I used Paton’s Grace yarn in Blush from my stash – I’d say it only used a quarter to a third of a skein. I don’t think I could pull off wearing one of these myself, but they’re so pretty, and perfect for a little girl, I think!
J and I started These Happy Golden Years. It’s hard to believe Laura endured that first difficult teaching job when she was only 15! J is very excited that Laura and Almanzo will finally be getting married in this book. Yarning along with Ginny today.
