It seems like ages since I've blogged a simple little post. I tend to get carried away and want to show you every detail of each project! So in the spirit of keeping it simple, here are a few pictures for you. I crocheted these adorable little baby hats for my co-worker. There aren't many (okay any) babies in my circle (until now), and I had no idea how much fun it is to make these itty bitty creations. I'm a bit of a magazine and pattern book fanatic, but I usually skim over the baby items. Not any more! Now I find myself oohing and aahing over tiny sweaters, snugly blankets, little booties and stuffed animals! I want to make them all! Alas, I know that baby doesn't actually need 5 blankies and multiple pairs of booties that look adorable, but won't stay on those little feet. So far I've made a littlestuffed kitty, these hats and a lap/stroller blanket.
I have one last gift on my hook. It's a cocoon in camo yarn to match the hat. The new mom and dad are huge fans of Duck Dynasty (you know, the reality show about the crazy, bearded hillbillies that make duck calls!) I thought it would be appropriate to pay homage to their favorite program by decking out the newest member of the family in camouflage. I'm not sure how much use they'll get out of the cocoon. If nothing else, it will make for some good pictures! They (the cocoons) seem to be tremendously popular, with patterns showing up everywhere. I imagine that baby might like the swaddled feeling, but it seems to me a blanket is just as effective when folded around the little one burrito style. Anyway, I'm sure they'll get a kick out of it and I'm happy to have a little one to lavish my handmade goodies upon!
If you're interested in making the set yourself, you'll find the pattern in the December 2012 issue of Crochet World magazine. It's the Cuddle Bug Bunting Set by Dianne Gochenour.
That'll do it for now! Thanks so much for stopping by and spending a bit of your day with me!
Until next time friends,
