Shell Tank This is another Tank I’m working on, using Chelle’s Tank Pattern.
Riley's Tank Top Riley Tank2This Tank is an original pattern by Moi! I used Simply Soft for it (in Riley’s FAVORITE-EST color!) She was also posing in her new Blue’s Clues outfit just before this picture, so she was in a very good mood!
Emily's New Tank Emily's Tank (back) This is another original design by Moi! – It was crocheted in one piece. I made this one with Bernat Softee Baby. It worked up fairly quickly, too!

I’m working on a 3rd one in blue Red Heart Sport, (is this around anymore?), making changes along the way.? I’m hoping to have the final pattern be able to work up in one piece, be cool enough for Louisiana summers (the only thing close to cool enough for that, in reality, is NUDITY, but, I’m aiming for the next best thing – LOL!), and an easy to read/work pattern.? When I have it to my liking, I will be looking for testers. The sizes I am making now are 3T and 4-5T.
I started another pair of slippers for me! Wow – 2 things just for ME in the same year! The Crochet gods are smiling! This pair uses the same pattern as the first pair. This time I’m using Wool-Ease chunky. I know, spring is officially here, so why would I use anything with Wool in it? Well, my feet constantly feel like 2 blocks of ice, and DH said he really doesn’t like when I try to warm them on him. Whatever! I’ve had that skein (yup, just one 5 oz skein is enough to make a pair of slippers for my dainty size 9 feet), for a while, and since I’m stash busting…

I’ll post a pic when I’m finished.

  1. Your girls are so cute. I am inspired by your work. I made an egg and some pizza slices for my doughter, she loves them. She just got a Little Tikes kitchen and some pots and pans for her birthday. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas.
