Two Cuddle Sacks With Matching Hats


Here are my latest cuddles sacks with matching hats. I used Mary Maxim's Baby Blankie yarn with a g hook. The color is Apple Blossom. The two sets I made are almost identical as they came from the same large skein of yarn. It take about 350 yards to make one set.

Blue and White Granny Square Baby Blanket


I was thinking I had not done a granny square blanket for a long time to I picked two shades of blue and one of white and crocheted 49 squares for this baby blanket. I used Hobby Lobby Baby Bee Sweet Delight yarn and a g hook. I tried single crochet to hook the squares together but I didn't like the looks of it so sewed all the squares together with the mattress stitch.

12 Octopus Kitty Toys

I crocheted these 12 octopus kitty toys for our granddaughter Briana in South Dakota for her to donate to the animal shelter she works part-time at. I put a little catnip in each one. Our cat Joey and dog Mindy fought over the one I made for them. I also made a couple for our daughter's two cats.
