I guess I have dropped the ball on crochet projects so far this year. Actually, in between school assignments, I have been working on a few projects.
It's just that the projects have been on the down-low so to speak.
They were special surprises for a very special girl.
And I didn't want to ruin the surprise, so I waited to post the finished products here.
Well, they are surprises no more.
So without further ado....
May I present my only the second and third baby blankets I have ever completed! (yeah! you read right)
The pattern for this blanket came from the book A Year of Afghans, 1997. I loved it because the blanket looks so detailed but it was actually a very easy pattern. The yarn I used was Red Heart Soft Baby Steps. I liked using this yarn because it is a little thicker than most baby yarn and it is very, very soft.
Here is the other blanket:
Just a simple granny square. The yarn I used was Vanna's Baby Yarn.
Yep, I'm a big fan of the thicker yarns. I just find the baby yarn too thin. At least for blankets.
Now I know that the blankets don't really give a clue about the gender of my first grandbaby but
I'm pretty sure my next project will......
Yeah.....I don't see a baby boy wearing this....Lol!
So, yes, it is a girl!
And I had the extra added pleasure of saying "I knew it"! The phrase every daughter loves to hear.
What can I say. She was thinking "boy". I was thinking (and hoping) "girl".
I win. Well, I guess it wasn't really a contest.....
Anyways, I spied these cute little diapers covers on pinterest and I knew I had to get my hands on this pattern. The pattern is by Little Abbee. Her etsy shop can be found here.
I think the pattern was like $3.99. Not bad at all.
I made a few of these and it took me only an hour to an hour and a half to whip one up.
And they are just so stinking cute!
Anyways, that is all the crochet that I have finished.
Of course, I still have all those works in progress lying around. Go figure!
Hope you all have a marvelous Wednesday!
