Look closely, you will see a pink shoulder rest.
(p.s. - it's about 8:45 a.m. on a Saturday and they haven't had their pancakes yet)

SNIPPETS - FORGET-ME-KNOT


A little play on words there.  This crocheted shoulder wrap is actually called "Forget-Me-Not" and it is another pattern from Tiny Owl Knits.  I made this as an addition to Frannie's Halloween costume - Elsa from Frozen.  I used Loops & Threads "Snuggly Wuggly" yarn.  I do not recommend this yarn.  Can you say P-I-L-L?!!  It is economical, which makes it suitable for craft projects, but I do not suggest using it for anything you seriously want to wear.  Heck, it pills while you are working with it.

There's Ollie (a Coton de Tulear) snoozing on the chair,
wearing a sweater I made for him.

As for the patten, I L-O-V-E it!  So much so that I want to make another one.  I can hear Debbie Bliss "Angel" in pale pink calling my name.  The ruffles were a dream to crochet.  The only modifications I made to this pattern were that I made it longer (more rows of ruffles) and instead of a tie closure, I made a loop and added some bling, after all, it was Halloween.

SNIPPETS - ANOTHER HAT

Hello Cupcake
 Another free pattern courtesy of Repeat Crafter Me.  Hat is sized for a newborn (0-3 months old), but I think it fits pretty well on an American Girl doll.  Vanna's Choice yarn.

No one ties their hat anymore, do they?

SNIPPETS - MORE AG

Sparkly hot pink sweater for American Girl.  Free pattern courtesy of Little Kina via Ravelry.  I used Vanna's Glamour and size 5 needles.  Knit in one piece, top down.  No seaming (yeah!).  Next time I would go down a size on the needles.

Next up is a crocheted ripple afghan which is displayed on Molly's American Girl doll bed (now retired).  I think this is a mix of Red Heart Super Saver and Vanna's Choice yarns.
