It Ain't Easy Bein' Green
I crocheted this quick corset thingie for Eldest Granddaughter as a "back to school" gift. It's generally too warm during the day for a full sweater, but this, made of two strands of sock yarn will keep her snuggly. We're thinking of getting several different colors of yarn, matching different shirts to weave through the top openings and tie in a bow in front.Spent an hour this morning trying to figure out how to make this blanket. It truly is a stash buster! Triple crochet all the way around! However it'll make a great baby blanket to go with the Boheme I just finished. My youngest daughter will be making it, though, not me. I'm making these booties to go with the Boheme.I'm thinking of making a few of these for one of the teachers at Oldest Granddaughter's school. She collects fish and has been the teacher for three of my six school age grand kids. We're hoping the fourth of them will start with her next year. These little fishies are cute, too.
