~ a baby cocoon and a doily re-do ~

Good morning ladies.  I finished up the baby cocoon last night.  This one is a little larger than the ones I usually crochet.  It measures 11 1/2" across x 14 1/2" top to bottom.  I used 2 skeins of the Vanna's Tapestry yarn I bought at AC Moore a little bit ago.  The color is called 'Peru'.  

I also re-crocheted a border onto one of the doilies I have hanging on my craft room shelf.  I took off the pink border and removed 2 buttons, then crocheted on a yellow border and replaced the 2 buttons with a yellow one and a pink one.  This is the doily before:

this is what it looks like now:

The pattern is from here -
scroll down a little and click on 'knitting diagram'.

That's it for now - see ya next time.  :)

  1. Love the pattern the variegated yarn makes on the cocoon. I agree, the doily looks better with the yellow. Have a great weekend.

  2. Both projects are pretty Debi. The yellow border looks nice against the off white yarn. I haven't seen that colorway in Vanna's, but what yarn I've bought lately, I've bought on-line. Have a happy Friday! Heather

  3. Lovely cocoon, Debi:) The doily is looking pretty in yellow border. I liked both old and new version of your doily.

  4. Love that Peru yarn...makes a cute little cocoon! Your doily looks nice...both ways! :)

  5. It is a pretty colour:-):-) I have get my hook mobile and make acouple of cacoons real soon:-):-) The doily is sweet both ways Debi.. Have a great week end :-) hugs Pat..

  6. Love the cocoon Debi, the colours in that yarn are beautiful. I like your doily edging but I liked the pink too I would have to have one of each colour I think, now there's an idea...have a great weekend xxx

  7. Your doily looks great Debi!
    Hope you will have a lovely weekend!

  8. I can't decide which one I like better, Debi! The buttons are a fun addition; I'm going to try that. You're so inspiring!

  9. That peru yarn is gorgeous!! That is such a pretty and unusual cocoon. Lovely!!
