Floribunda Pima Cotton Pullover Sweater from Peruvian Connection.

Irish Crochet with even net, but for me it looks like motives are sewed on top of the net. It makes sense because "even net" is very complicated thing to do and to be honest I don't see the point doing that if you can just make things easier way looking about the same.
The success of this pullover in nice colors combination and good fitting. Motives are really simple. Love it.

Hiking at Tohickon Valley Park, PA

It was last Saturday hike. We've decided to be civilized this time and went to Peddler's Village, nice little place with craft shops in Backs County. There was a scarecrow contest display. After 5 minutes walking around it suddenly felt so boring ans so crowded, that we jumped in the car and ended up in Tohickon Valley Park, beautiful place we discovered short time ago.
Our dream is to rent a cabin in the park, right next to that creek.

  I was so sick that weekend, I sent Timur camping with my friend and next morning decided I have to go outdoors since last leaves were fallen. There won't be much left after Sandy. :(

Halloween mood

Instead of buying a huge one I've got these cute little pumpkins this year and decided to make dresses for them.

Crochet brown dress from Peruvian Connection.

  I think it's gorgeous. Net makes a perfect fit, those little flowers are so cute plus unusual lap and t-short imitation. These details make the dress outstanding. Love it.

Crochet maxi dress from Free People.

Wouldn't you like to have something hippie style in your wardrobe? The only thing I don't like is that short lining which breaks the dress awkwardly, I would make it down to the stripe on the skirt.

Fall flowers.

Flowers, we collected while hiking last time. I left them outside my house and forgot until  this morning. I don't even know their name. If you do, please, tell me.

Beige Cardigan. Done.

Done with the cardigan! Cotton thread #10, hook 2 mm. All charts are for size medium (American - 12, for breast 92 cm).

Original cardigan акщь Chico's.

Bottom part of cardigan and sleeves. I have to redo this one. Arrows mean connecting 2 motifs by making single crochet stitches through last rows of sc of both motifs. Put them together facing each other with right side (RS) and make sc row through both back and front loops of both motifs.


Crochet in a loop up to the row marked with oval, then start shaping armhole. Notice, I put chain stitches (ch) from some point to make sleeve wider. There is tc between them. Normally it's just tr (treble crochet) to the top of down square.
