We have a new granddaughter and she's just precious. Some crochet that was made for her arrival. Here are links to the patterns: Purple crocheted hat, purple crocheted sweater, pink knit sweater and the white hat has no pattern, but the pom was bought at Michael's.
In the last month I've made quite a few things. I was overwhelmed with work drama so I tuned out from everything - facebook and other sites - for a bit and really just enjoyed the quiet. So meditative to bring life down a notch and just enjoy the scrumptious and squooshy yarns and the… Continue reading Quiet time produces so much joy
I've made this a few times - LOVE the pattern. Great baby gift. I found the fabric covered buttons on Etsy at HowBeadyful and they are the 1/2" ones. Too sweet. One is a baby gift, I have the others on reserve as stand-by baby gifts I guess. Like the 2 pink ones I've made… Continue reading Autumn Leaves Baby Sweater

This is just a simple basket weave blanket for a co-worker, due in August. The yarn is Loops & Threads Snuggly Wuggly from Michaels in a YUGE skein, but I think I only used @800yds of it.
A friend at work asked for baby booties for her expectant friend, so we settled on this cute pattern and she just loved them. The yarn is Berroco Vintage, buttery soft and washable. I love this yarn. The buttons are just some leftover bridal buttons to dress them up a little bit. Farewell tiny shoes!
A cousin asked if I would make socks for her soon-to-arrive baby. I honestly had nothing on the needles so how could I say no? They're a hybrid of a few patterns, but soft and cute anyway.
