And, to keep working on my crochet skill, I crocheted it all, in Bernat Baby Jacquards, “I’m a Big Boy” colourway.
I made a hat, a pair of booties, a blanket and a little kitty. All of it going to my friend Lisa for her baby boy who should be born in about two weeks.
I’m crocheting a baby blanket for a birth present. One of my friends is expecting a baby boy very soon. The pattern is Bright Baby Blanket, a free pattern from Lion Brand Yarn.
I’m using Bernat Baby Jacquards, “I’m a big boy” colourway.
It’s a pretty simple pattern, basically a giant granny square!
I’m working on improving my crochet skill. I taught myself to crochet a few years ago but haven’t had so many opportunities to improve since. So, in order to do just that, I’m trying to take on increasingly challenging patterns.
My latest project is a market bag, made out of a 100% cotton yarn. Pattern is free and is here.
I have just finished the socks for my Knit Picks submission. Now that they are knit in this bright yarn, they really remind me of candies rather than a tortoise shell, so I decided to rename them Candy Toes instead of Tortoise Toes.
Thanks to my friend Julia who modeled them, I have some very nice pictures…
Pattern is available here.
Yesterday, I made a little cap in crochet as a test for the designer, it’s a really quick project, it took me about 2 1/2 hours to make. The pattern can be found here. I made it in a 100% cotton yarn.
Here it is, modeled by my 4-year old – he enjoyed the photo shoot 😉
