Stitch. Read. Covet. Blog.


Stitch: I bought this acrylic/wool blend baby yarn to make a dress for the Girl Bear, for her to wear next winter. I'll use a pattern I purchased from Alicia Paulson's shop, Rosy Little Things. It's the Mina dress and I think it's totally adorable.


Read: I'm currently reading The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty, which is beautifully written. I'm enjoying it very much. In fact, I'm having trouble putting it down.


Covet: Right now, I'm into the new Wild Strawberry pattern from Cath Kidston. I especially love the skirt and day bag.



Blog: I've been enjoying the blog Made in K-Town. I stumbled across it a few weeks ago. Barbara lives in Germany and she creates beautiful crocheted items and shares tutorials for them too. Barbara sometimes features other bloggers and their work; she recently shared an interview she did with Kathryn Vercillo of the Crochet Concupiscence blog, which I also enjoy. Kathryn is also author of the book Crochet Saved My Life. This looks like an interesting read as well.

Stitch. Read. Covet. Blog. is an idea I got from the wonderful blog, Christina Lowry Designs. Christina has been posting her own editions and I've enjoyed reading them. She inspired me to do it too.

    1. Hi Softie! Thanks, I really love that color too. It reminds me of the little grape hyacinth flowers which should be blooming soon. I love Alicia's designs too, everything she has is beautiful!

  3. Lovely idea for a regular post. I like the Mina dress very much - Alicia Paulson is just too talented! I just wish I had a baby/toddler girl to make one for. My babies are growing so fast. :-(

    1. Hi Gillian! Thank you, I enjoyed this post. I might try to do it every couple of weeks or so. Isn't that dress sweet? I don't have much longer to make things like this for her. She happens to be very small for her age so that prolongs it a little bit...I wish I'd been better at crocheting when she was a little baby, there are so many things I see now that I would have loved to have for her.
