I have very recently acquired some of her hooks. She's got every kind I've ever seen and some bamboo and white plastic ones (which I've never seen in the store). She never had much so I feel like these are just random hooks she picked up here and there with a random skein to play around.
I came across this little dress. I generally dress my daughter like a little tomboy. She loves the outside so I just don't see a reason to put a dress on her that will inhibit her movements. But this dress is so cute, and warm. It's also a vintage pattern, which I love. It felt like to right thing to use the green I hook. That I remember learning on when I was in elementary school.
The pattern itself is a little intimidating, but it was easier to follow than I thought it would be. Lots of dc.

I listened to George Jones and crocheted faster than I ever have, I think. I took about 2.5 hours.
The yarn is "Seafoam" by Red Heart Soft. Its a really nice green/blue/gray and reminded me of the kid's eyes.
