Lime Green Lady

About the lady

A thirty something, mother of one, wifey and general craft addict.

When not perusing or writing on the blogosphere, doing mommy things or houseworky things, my day job is running a media studio that specialises in animation.

I sometimes have a social life too.

My favourite past times (after crochet, knitting and other crafty ventures) are visiting the theatre, having a sing song and swimming.

Favourite saying: “Isn’t that jolly?!”

Favourite food: erm, chocolate. Duh.

Favourite designer: Anne Claire Petit

Anything else we should know?: Yes. Coffee is my fuel.

    My granddaughter sent me your pattern for the Granny square baby jacket along with yarn which was 4ply worsted weight by Vanna White.. I devised a motif using a smaller needle and wound up with a jacket big enough for an eight year old.. I put six rows of Lime ribbing (as with the sleeves) across the bottom which gave it a more finished look. So my twelve month old great granddaughter will just have to grow into it. Ha Ha! I had a good time finding the interpretation from English to American crochet terms.
    I am an 85 year old having been taught crochet at the age of twelve by my grandmother.

  13. Thank you for liking my post” Candy Stripe Bag Now Has a Liner” on OUR RETIRED LIFE. You have some interesting things here yourself. I think I will take a look around.

    Hi, I just found the “Lime Green Lady” while searching for knitted dinosaur patterns to make for my grandson to be. I fell in love with the both the ones shown on April 5, 2014 and May 1, 2014! However, I can’t figure out how to get and print the patterns so that I can make them. Can you help me figure it out how to get the patterns? Thanks in advance!

  15. Your patterns are so cute!! I just made the bird, but altered the colors a bit to look like my cockatiel: http://cuddlyhawk.tumblr.com/post/156568271579/my-first-attempt-at-a-cute-lil-crochet-cockatiel
    It turned out so adorably, I was just wondering if I’d be allowed to sell them if I make more? Like, someone could give me their pet bird’s pattern, and I could custom make it for them, or even just make a bunch of premade birds to sell, with varying colors and whatnot. However, since it’s your pattern, I’m not sure how this works. It’s a free pattern, right? So am I allowed to use it to sell amigurumis that I make?

    • So glad you like the pattern, they turned out so beautifuly! You are more than welcome to sell your birds, as long as you credit me as the designer with a link to the wesbite.
      In general, even if a pattern is free, you don’t have permission to sell them unless the designer says you can. And most ask for a credit.
      Thanks so much for asking
