“The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

If you’ve surfed the Myspace crochet net you’ve propbably heard of the twins, Erika + Monika Simmons, you’ve been able to appreciate their style, daring and modern, their designs, colourful and sassy, and now… there’s a book!

Words are meaningless. Just look at the pictures. (Preview on Interweave Press)

My Otto dress

my otto dress

Xposted in Ravelry

07/01/2008 : saw Jennica’s version and wanted it so badly I started to draw the schematics from High resolution pictures I found on a Russian message board…

16/04/2008 : as it was my car project, the first strips are not the same size, I think it will be ok, goes with the whole négligé look, but I wrote down what I did for later reference. I’m afraid I won’t have enough yarn for the skirt, It may end up being a shirt. It is a very quick and fun poject when you’re not doing it in a car!

19/04/2008 : It’s almost finished, I could wear it as it is, as a lacy dress, I like the look but still want to add sleeves and collar, it’s too long to add a skirt though.

24/04/2008 : tunisian didn’t work, doing the cowl alternating back loop / front loop single crochet, with a tinier hook (3mm).

02/05/2008 : cowl almost finished, BLSC is soooo boring! but worth it. I’m already rewriting the pattern to do this dress again with a more Victorian look…

05/05/2008 : collar finished and sewn! it’s not as wide as the original, but more BLSC would’ve killed me! back to 5mm hook for the sleeves, still wondering about the skirt…

09/05/2008 : ends weft in this mirnong, the collar needs a border but I don’t care, I jumped in it to wear in proudly and got lots of compliments! I love this dress, it’s the perfect addition to a cotton tee for this late spring season :o)

  • Crocheted!

  • Is it knitted? Nope! Crocheted! Crochet isn't just for grannies, doilies and floppy funky scarves. I am - fairly - under 50, I have a crochet hook and a yarn ball handy in my purse and I like decorating my shoulders better than my sofa.
