Hello Miss Starzoe!
You have me all excited about crochet cotton! I’ve been just a’swatching away here, all week-end, one strand, two strands, three strands JUMP!
Five years ago, I was at the Holiday Mart, a KC area charity event. There was a booth selling beautiful but quite expensive baby clothes. They were knitted at a very fine guage, lovely in every detail and very heavy for their size. They draped so much, they almost drooped around my hand when I picked one up. I thought they might perhaps, be knitted of linen.
I ADORED THEM.
I don’t have any grandchildren and the least expensive item, in the booth, was $75., so I left them all there.
I never forgot about those elegant little garments, and now YOU have got me thinking about them again.
Do you think they may have been knitted in multi-strand crochet cotton?
Have you made any baby clothes this way?
I’m so happy! We just found out that my niece is expecting the very first grand niece or nephew in our family on February 7, 2009. It will be the first baby on any side of our family in the past 23 years! Celebrate good times!
I’m going to throw caution to the wind and give it a try. Is there anything special that I should know or keep in mind? I’ve never knitted baby clothes from anything but wool or cotton/wool blend. I have months to unknit failures, if I don’t at first succeed, I can swatch swatch again.
