Dooby Dooby Doo!

My toddler loves Scooby Doo, so I thought I'd make him some Dooby Doo inspired woolies! Dyed with orange and lime Kool Aid, of course.

I have tried my hand at crochet in the past but found the patterns to be completely indecipherable.  After many questions over the Internet, and much frustration, I think I'm finally getting it. I made the Wooly Britches Soaker first. (You can find the pattern in the links section of the Yahoo Group, wool_soaker_group. You must be a member to access it.) It reminded me of a mushroom, so I freehand crocheted a mushroom applique. The second is the Tickle Turdle Wrap. That one had a very complicated edging, which I actually managed to survive!

A Great Find!

I was unpacking boxes of "too big" clothes for my littlest one and low and behold, I found a soaker that I had forgotten about! It's the Fern and Faerie Free Soaker pattern (aka Mehndimama's Soaker) and I absolutely love it on! Unfortunately, it will be too small soon.
