recent crochet projects

i've completed two crochet projects in the past month, and i tell you what, they've been fun. i'm pretty sure there's nothing better than making something for a baby girl. i have a new niece, on spencer's side. i just met her the other day. she is darling -- they call her annie.

of course this necessitated a baby blanket. here we have it. the pattern is called a Baby Ripple Afghan. i think next time i would do 2 solid colors instead of the variegated yarn.

the blanket is made of a bunch of long strips, then stitched together.

here it is mid-assembly:

and then all together:
and unfolded:



and then i came across this baby hoodie and i just couldn't resist. i went with plain pink.

and then this is the back of it:
the pom-pon is cute, but was ill-fated.


her parents were kind enough to put it on her, even though it is a bit too big right now. we can get the general idea, right?
adorable. she's just the cutest.


we had to get spencer in for a picture, as well:
that's all she wrote.

Goodness! That is fabulous, my friend. I've always wanted to be able to crochet like that, but I just have never learned to do it that well.

I know basic crochet but never seem to find the time to learn more.

I am envious

That is adorable!! I'm sorry I've fallen off the blog-reading-commenting wagon but I'm trying to get better at it now that I have a "regular 9-5 type job." Whew! I have a lot of catching up to do, hope you are well!!

Great work, these are just beautiful! My crochet is not the best and I love to do it but do not have a lot of time. My kids all seem to think that store bought is better :(
