crochet collar

crocheted collar 2

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.

  1. Thank you! If I want my daughter to wear something, pink is always a sure-fire way to make it happen 🙂 Although she might even wear this one in a different color…
