I love this!  How'd you do the pearl trim?  Such a lovely accessory with everything crocheted and victorian...

So cool!  AND informative since LB Fisherman's is what I figured would be my first kool-aid dying experiment too.

I'd heard feedback that felting made kool-aid dye run or fade, and yours looks fantastic!  I'd love more info about the whole dying and then felting process....

Your rat looks super cozy!

I finished this for my 94 year old Grandma the other day and took some pictures before I sent it off.  It took only 2.5 skeins of Homespun, (in French Provincial) and even though I used a larger hook (a P which I loooove) it's shorter than the pattern picture.  I did a half double crochet on the border instead of a double crochet, and stuck to the 8 rows indicated.  On the last row I ch4 and skipped a st to make the buttonhole since the only closure I assume would be the crocheted flower on a pin, and buttons are easier when you are 94 than pins...

I just loved this yarn- I thought it looked like a lavender garden.  The website describes it as "grey rose and tan" and it's more plum, sage with blue which cracks me up.

That's the tudor homespun, isn't it?  I love how this pattern breaks up the stripey effect you get from that yarn when it's been double or single crocheted.  Definitely marketable as is!
