to crochet was because I wanted to put crochet edgings on my knits. Flowers are just a bonus.
Knitting Loves Crochet that was very helpful. The first project in the book is a simple garter stitch dishcloth (of the type that I learned to knit on), to which you can add your choice of edging.
This week has been kind of a crazy one, so I haven't spent a ton of time in my sewing room. My fur coat muslins are hanging out, awaiting a decision. I really appreciate everyone's input and you've all given me a lot to think about. I'm going to let the ideas simmer for a bit before a make a final pattern choice. In the meantime, I traced and cut a wearable muslin of Vogue 8747, which will be my white blouse, if it works out as a muslin.
