Doilies & Sweaters ~ Fun Crochet

Hello crocheting friends! Thought I’d share my recent projects, and see how everybody is doing.  Has Spring finally sprung yet in your area?  It is working on it here.  I have a few daffodils blooming now, and my grape hyacinths are just starting to bloom as well.  Perhaps the snow is over for another season. lol
First up are the doilies I’ve made recently.  This first one is one I am putting in a prize basket for one of the prizes at my future daughter-in-law’s shower.
Next up is a fun spring doily. The pattern info is on the picture. It is a free pattern.
And here is the same doily in action. :)
I also recently made a couple sweaters for Adelyn. Again…info on the pics. These are both paid patterns.  Adelyn tried them on for me at her brother’s little league practice, so I just took a quick pic of the one. The first pic is of it hanging on my door.
And, of course, this is Adelyn wearing it.
Here is the second sweater.  It’s OK, but honestly I think it needs to have more stitches along the back, between the armholes. Seemed kind of small to me. I made the 5-7 year size, but I think it’s a pretty snug fit. IMHO.
Oh my goodness, I almost forgot…I also made a matching sweater for Adelyn’s American Girl doll! No pictures of it on the doll, but I did take a pic of the two sweaters together.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a great weekend!!


  1. Beautiful doilies - and I love the little sweaters. :)
