I should have been doing laundry but…

…I decided to finish this instead.


And not to toot my own horn (because I copied it from one I saw at “In the Making” earlier today), but how cute is this closure?


It’s just a simple crocheted flower with a starting loop of 8 instead of 5 so there was plenty of room for the button. I just finished the first and crocheted a 7 stitch chain then 8 more stitches for the beginning loop of the second flower. Easy peasy. I am now going to pick up a little bit and spray some air freshener so Jason thinks I’ve been slogging away at housework all day. Think it’ll fool him? Nah. Me neither, but hopefully he’ll play along.

    I agree, although for the sake of clean underwear, I am giving in and doing laundry today. 🙂

    Isn’t that the cutest little girl button ever! I wish I had thought of it, but I pride myself on copying only the best stuff. 😉

    Please feel free to copy me, as I copied someone else — so it’s only fair. 🙂 And talk about talent! Every time I see lace, I think of you and your beautiful black lace scarf (what was her name again?).

    Oh, that is just beautiful! I literally just finished my second baby’s blanket so not quite ready for something this advanced yet but I can dream!

    Jools, you can do it! I’ve only been knitting since September of 09 so I promise it isn’t that difficult. It’s all a matter of finding easy patterns. Let’s hear it for Ravelry! 🙂

    Get that spray that smells like you’ve been baking ( from Williams-Sonoma) and throw something on the counter from Edgars. Make sure there is flour sprinkled liberally in the kitchen. You need to bring your varsity charade game chick!
