A Thank You Note...

We received this thank you note from our local hospital. It really warms our hearts when we receive thoughtful feedback like this.

I am a nurse from the Family Birthing Unit at Chambersburg Hospital. I would like to thank you for the generous amount of hand crafted items you bring us for our newborns. Our families do appreciate these treasures which they know are made from love for each of them. It is very helpful for us to have these warm hats for the babies. The mothers love having them as a keepsake.


I just wanted to say thank you and let you know how much we appreciate them.
Sincerely,
Donna H, RN
Family Birthing Unit

Bobble Stitch Baby Blanket

I have been working on this baby blanket off and on for a couple weeks and finally finished it. The pattern came from an old magazine from the 80's. Sorry no name of the magazine. I used Pound of Love yarn and a g hook.

Afghan For My Home

I took a break from crocheting baby items and crocheted an afghan for my-self. I used Carron Cakes yarn with a g hook. The color is called Faerie Cake. It reminds me ocean waves. I love it!

Born In The USA Baby Blanket

This blanket is from The Baby Crow and it is a paid pattern. I loved working on it but didn't like how the edges ruffled. I may try it again before I make my donations before the 4th of July.

I am thinking of Spring so I crocheted this baby dress and matching booties. I used 3 ply yarn and a g hook. No label on the yarn so can't say what brand.

Two Baby Blankets

I finished up these two baby blankets this week. I used Pound of Love yarn for both with a H hook. The pink one is called Pink Moscato double Shell and The turquoise one had no name and I don't know where I found the pattern, but it was written with two mistakes and I had to figure out how to make a couple changes in it. It turned out ok, but if I make it again I will have to make another change to the pattern.

Blueberry Cheesecake Baby Blanket

I like how this baby blanket turned out. I used the new Caron Cakes yarn and a g hook. The color is Blueberry Cheesecake. I think the ripple pattern was a good choice for this yarn.
