  • Little Black Dresses to Crochet or Knit

    I have a dressy occasion looming in the future, and rather than hitting the department store racks, I’m shopping in our Leisure Arts crochet or knit pattern books for the perfect little black dress. (You all know about that essential little black dress I’m sure. It’s a required well-dressed wardrobe staple…Mine needs to be replaced rather desperately…the grown daughter put a lot of mileage on it—playing dress up in her childhood days!)

    The Quintessential little black dress in the Crochet Dude Drew Emborsky’s Crochet It. Love It. Wear It! is one of my favorites. Love the elegant neckline, slightly off the shoulder look, and the waist would help hide a multitude of muffin-toppy sins!

    Shibaguyz Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby’s NYC Dress from Urban Edge really makes a crocheted statement. The use of classic crochet techniques in this visually stunning, fashion forward design is just way cool.

    I can totally see this Daring Decollete Dress from Lena Maikon’s Knits Extraordinaire transformed into the perfect little black dress. With its low-cut front (and even lower-cut back) it’s simple yet seductive. Perfect for very special evenings!

    And for perhaps a more simple and conservative little black dress option, this springy Peridot Dress from Deborah Newton’s Warm Weather Knits would also look lovely in black and very dressy with all its textured detailing! I was already contemplating adding it to my summer wardrobe anyway...

    And the search for the perfect crochet or knit little black dress continues…Did you see one you like? Oh, and just in case you’re interested, three of these books are available as digital download eBooks:

    Crochet It. Love It. Wear It!

  • Crocheted Hats for Charity

    Hope you’re having a fabulous Sunday! It just dawned on me that I never shared the photo of all the hats I crocheted for charity in 2011! I may not have been as prolific as some of you master crocheters out here, but, for me, I think I did pretty good!
    Wanna take a little trip down crocheted memory lane with me?
    This Two Stitch Hat came from Bonnie Barker’s Noggins & Necks!
    These 3 little hats are from the Baby Hat pattern in The Crochet Dude Drew Emborsky’s Hug It Out!
    Gotta love the Chinese Acrobat Hat from Shibaguyz Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby’s Heady Affairs!
    And my autumn-colored Basket Weave hat from Bonnie Barker’s Noggins & Necks!
    I was very pleased with this Eco Green Hat from Lisa Gentry’s Celebrity Slouchy Beanies to Crochet!
    This little green hat with the crocheted flower…
    …and these 5 baby hats (plus the blue one in the big picture) all came from one of my favorite pattern books—Teach a Group of Kids to Crochet by Kay Meadors!
    Cute & Cozy Caps by Lori Adams was the source for my little purple Ruffled Pillbox hat.
    Drew Emborsky, yet again, is responsible for the pattern for this Cabled Tam. It’s from his In All Caps little book!
    Did you knit or crochet any hats for charity last year? What have you got on the hook for 2012?
