I've been crocheting my little fingers off in the past few months and here are some pictures to prove it. Above is the baby ripple blanket I'm working on using a size J hook and Red Heart Strata in 'Bambino''. The trouble is I only bought 3 skeins and now could kick myself since I haven't been able to find anymore of this yarn. If you know where I could buy some, please let me know because 3 skeins aren't going to be sufficient to complet this adorable blanket.
Next up is the baby sweater I began a week or so ago and I'm really enjoying this project. I'm using Bernat Softee Chunky and a size G hook. It's a top down sweater so there won't be any joining when finished....it'll be all ready to go other than adding button bands, a collar, and buttons. I do need to find a baby hat pattern to go with this though......any ideas would be very welcome.
Finally, I'm still working on my squares in order to sew together in the end and have a baby blanket sampler, so to speak. I'm using Bernat Softee Chunkyfor this also, and a size H hook. The patterns are ones I've picked from the Crochet Stitch Bible, and 63 Crochet Stitches booklet. I tried to make each one about 10" wide but some are about an inch short so I'll have to tweak and stretch a bit when sewing it together. I'm not sure which method I'll use when I sew it together but I'll probably just go for it and if I don't like the way it looks I'll try another method. I'm going to have to finish these by March 6th so I need to buckle down and get those crochet hooks 'a flyin'.
