…for a baby! Not my baby, thank goodness, as I’m not ready for that right now. It’s my cousin’s baby! A healthy little boy who’s as cute as all get out.
I love making things for people, but for some reason I’ve been behind on making blankets for all three of my cousins who’ve had kids so far. The first two got quilts, but I decided that while there’s a difference between a quilt and a crocheted blanket, they’re both perfectly appropriate gifts and crocheting this one would mean that I actually get it to her before the baby’s even a month old. I think that’s fair.
So I bought a lovely bright Turquoise “Pound of Love,” which happens to have a fast & pretty baby blanket pattern on the back.
Here’s a picture of how it’s looking so far. I’ve been working on it when I can for about a week and I’m nearly halfway done. Then there’s a little hood to top it off.
(it’s a little washed-out, the yarn is quite bright.)
Unfortunately, I’ve had to put off my Firefly cross-stitch work for now. And I’m only half-heartedly working on my pattern for a crocheted grue (I need to get eyes for it too). I’ll post a pic of then when I’m done & then get back to the fun/nerdier stuff. At least I like my cousin & the baby’s cute, so I’m excited about the project.
