Newborn Pinafore, Diaper Cover & Booties

I finished crocheting this 3 piece set tonight. The color is peach. I think the pinafore turned out a little large for a newborn. The pattern called for a H hook. I will try a G hook on the next one. The pattern can be found on Bev's Country Cottage web site. I made up the diaper cover as I went. When I make another one, I will write the pattern down.

Crocheting Dish Cloths

I have been having fun crocheting dish cloths here lately. Here are two of my latest. One is a sunflower dish cloth and the other is a dress dish cloth which when finished I found it fits nicely over a 16 oz dish soap bottle. I will put it in my kitchen window to dress up my kitchen.

Magic Ball Scrap Round Ripple Afghan

After months of working on and off this scrap afghan I finally finished it tonight. It measures 50 inches across and now resides on the back of my recliner. Of course, anytime I lay something out to take a picture, my cat Angel has to be there to get in the picture too.
