First off . . . STUPID BLOGLINES!
I'm so glad to hear it was bloglines keeping everyone away from my shameless giveaway! LOL So what I want to do is have another! I hope to update the shop soon and will hold another giveaway. I have quite a few more of those hankies to spread around! I may not do the updates until after July 4th as I'll be away for a while but we'll see. I have some fun stuff still to list. :)
Thank you guys so much for the support! Hope to have more fun vintage goodies up in the Goodness Shop soon! And maybe my sister will get some of her goodness up there, too. :)
So look what I made:
He's supposed to be an octopus but I couldn't figure out where to put his eyes. Plus I made his tentacles a bit frilly with some picot edging and that gives him a very jelly fish appearance. :) The pattern is from the current issue of Crochet Today. There isn't much more in that issue I would make unfortunately. He is made from Paton's Grace and he jingles! I took the suggestion of my buddy Catherine and stuffed one of those cat toy balls with the bells in them inside. It's a but muffled but it does the job. He's a gift for a sweet little boy who turned one in March. :)
