I just now got around to making this little ruffled crochet skirt for Audrey to go with the lavender cardi I made her this summer. It turned out pretty cute! Audrey was excited about it, which of course totally makes it for me!
She said, "Mom, it's like your skirt," when I was showing her how the drawstring works. She's referring to this vintage looking crochet skirt I made a few years ago. I love it when she likes things of mine or things I make--I feel it may be a time-limited state of mind for her so I'm making the most of it!
The skirt came together pretty quickly, which is a prerequisite these days. I used this pattern from Sandy's Cape Cod Originals and Lily Sugar n' Cream yarn in Warm Brown. I seriously have about a drawer full of Sugar n' Cream yarn with everything I have been crocheting with it this summer and more hats planned for the Fall. At least I've got less of the brown stashed now.
I never quite know how it's going to go trying to get pictures of Audrey but I always know it will be quick! She likes to goof off and run away most of the time but I still managed to get some cute shots.
