Blue Sleep Bag

I spent 2 days crocheting this blue sleep bag using the twin stitch. I used the Bernat Baby Bouclé yarn for the first time and found it very hard to crochet. It was hard to find where in the stitches to put my hook. I like the end result though. Soft and fuzzy.

30 baby hats loom knitted

I had Frank loom knit some baby hats to use up some 3 ply yarn. He had to use 3 strands of yarn to wrap his loom for them to come out right. He did 30 hats.

Pink and White Ripple Baby Blanket

I finished up this pink and white ripple baby blanket tonight. Now I get to choose another pattern and another color of yarn for my next baby blanket to crochet.

Blue/white Sweater Set

I finished this sweater set tonight. I made the hat and booties first, then the sweater and I realized I didn't have enough blue so I added the white trim and white sleeves to the sweater. I thought it turned out very pretty.
