First Heartbeat Blanket

I just finished this baby blanket. It is a kit from Mary Maxim. It is rated intermediate and it was quite difficult to do, but I keep at it and figured out the pattern. Did a little frogging along the way but I will make it again some day.

2 Cuddle Sacks and Hats

Here are two more cuddle sacks with matching hats. Again I used Mary Maxim Baby Blankie yarn. The color is Bluebells. As I donate to more than one hospital, I don't mind making two of the same from the same big skein of yarn. Also I used my twin stitch pattern with a g hook.

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.
