Quick and Cheerful – Krissy is rewarded for coming to Yorkshire with me

18 Nov

Bonjour, mes amies

Je suis en Angleterre!

I am in the Yorkshire Dales in a pub trying to connect with wifi to an IPad, fresh from exploring a cave in amongst all the limestone here. I came down on Friday and go home tomorrow. Apologies for the brief post and simple photo. Borrowed technology and time are against me …

Krissy is wearing a very cute and simple frock from a pattern by Odile of Passion Poupees. I have nearly finished another one for Katie and if I manage a third for Kara I will post a pic of them all together later.

I used Drops Fabel shade 330p (purples) and went for a crochet hook size 3 mm.  Odile recommends size 2.5 mm, but I crochet too tightly for that.  It has worked out beautifully, although I did slightly fewer increases to make it less wide and I added one extra row to make it the right length.

Such a cute dress from a gorgeous pattern with a lovely edging detail at the neck and hem.  I love it!

    Very nice in Fabel, thank you for this
    Je travaille lache au crochet, si tu travailles serré il faut effectivement utiliser un crochet plus gros
    Have a nice day

    Krissy is lovely dressed in such a nice dress. Each time I see her I feel like adopting one myself.
