I joined a Monthly Dishcloth KAL. I really enjoy it for two reasons. You do the projects a little each day so you're surprised when you see what it turns into. Second, they are fun and fast projects. Third, they are WAY better than anything you'd buy in the store. Fourth, they make wonderful gifts. My mother inlaw is hooked.

Oh Baby!!!!

Posted by Picasa

This is a blanket that I made for my best friend, Lori's. Baby Matthew Thomas will be making his appearance soon sometime in July. I really loved the feel of the Lion Brand Baby Soft and Microspun yarn. They definitely make the simple design something special. This blanket is not your regular baby blanket. I love the escape from the pastel pink and blue.

Home Spun Love

Well, this is my third baby blanket this year. There must be something in the water. This was made for my co-workers baby girl. I used Lion Brand Homespun in Coral Cables, Boston Rose & Creme. The pattern can be found on the lionbrand.com website under free patterns. I love the feel of it and the different colors. You get tired of doing just pink and blue after a while. I strayed from the pattern just a bit. It called for the pieces to be whipstitched together but I liked the "patchwork" look of crocheting the pieces together and putting border around it. One more baby blanket to go, for now.
