:: Grannymania Voila!!!! ::

Hello there my dear friends!!!

After more or less a week of fighting off a terrible cold, flu, type thing I am back on my feet.
What I don't get is that not more than a month ago I was sick as heck. Hmmm.

Well, even though I was a total zombie (meds)  for a few days, I did somehow manage to finish my granny project.
It really isn't a big deal, but it was one of those projects that just kept running away from me. I either had other things to do, or I had to stop and get sick, once or twice.  :(

These little cardies were made for great nephew and niece twins Marcus and Octavia.
They are now about 7 months old, and oh so cute!!!  The cardies are size 6 to 12 months so I know they will fit for a while. And I really enjoyed making and embellishing the little beanies. I especially like the over sized flower, so girlie!!!

Granny cardigans
The girl version for baby Octavia

The boy version for baby marcus

I especially like the girls hat.
I decided not to match up the buttons, Idon't particularly  like the  "mitchy matchy"  look.
The pattern for the sweater came from a little booklet I purchased at my local craft store, and the beanie pattern came from, 'Baby Crochet" by Lois Daykin.

I am still on my granny mania thing, so let's see what new things I will come up with.

bye for now and have a great weekend.   :)
