Last November I saw this gorgeous shawlette my dear friend Cindi made. It was amazing… light, lacy, elegant… a perfect accent piece. She shared the pattern with me, and I made one for my friend Elaine for our secret pal swap on CrochetList. The yarn I chose was a heavier weight than the yarn Cindi used, so the shawlette was a bit larger. Nonetheless, I think it is a lovely scarf/cowl/shawl thing.
I am pleased with how it turned out and I plan to make one for me. : )
When I was a little girl, my Great Gramma made each of the kids these crocheted bunnies. We loved them, and we took them everywhere. We’d tie their arms and legs around us so they could ride our backs on all our adventures. They always smiled, even when tossed into the washer covered in muck. My Great Gramma died when I was 16.
A few months ago, my mom gave me a box of knitting things that belonged to my Grandmother. Stuck between two magazines from the 70’s, I found this crumpled, torn, and tea stained piece of paper covered in scratchings, math problems, and designs. It was my Great Grandmother’s musings of this crocheted bunny. In short order, I interpreted the pattern, and now I carry on the legacy of the St Clair Bunny, making one for each child that comes into my life. This one is for Baby Gwyn, AKA “Pook”.
