Sneak Peek

I totally have lost track of what you've 'peeked' and what you haven't.... how about this one? Have you seen this? I sold this one, gosh, it must be a year ago, and I don't know when or where it will pop up! If you spot it, let me know!

Here's another favorite thing! It's a Susan Bates, aluminum crochet hook with a BAMBOO handle! Very cool. I found this at Hobby Lobby for around $2.50.

With a color that gorgeous I expect to see this in the spring! Quick question about Chickee's dress - do you take the hem out of the bottom of the shirt before you add the skirt or do you just crochet "over" it?

Hi Haley, no I don't take out the seam, I just go through both layers of folded hem. I guess you could undo the hem first, but sticking the hook/needle through the fabric is damaging the fibers a little, so maybe going through 2 layers is more secure than going through just one?

Thanks Ellen! That makes sense - I just have a rather large hem on this particular shirt I wanted to use so I was thinking the weight of the skirt might cause a weird fold and the hem line. I'll just have to try it and see.......I'll let you know! At this point it will probably be a project for January - I have 2 baby blanket sets to finish before Thursday!!
