More to show off.....

Ok so I found out that my cousin is having a little girl at the end of April begining of May so I thought Hey why not make something for her. I went to my yarn stash and low'n'behold I had some pink caron simply soft I had aquried for another project that I nixed so I got to work looking for a pattern and then crocheting.
The blanket took me about 4 days to crochet then 2 days to lightly block and then half an hour to weave in the ribbon. The hat took me about 40 minutes with just a basic hat pattern that I altered for the area where I wove in the ribbon and then added the shell to the edge. Booties might be in the future but I am not sure seens how I don't have any bootie patterns I really like.

On another note I have figured out what I am going to do for Jon for his blanket and I have a blanket in mind for my mom and both the boys so I am going to get started on Jon's blanket today and hopefully in about 3 months from now I will have it done*fingers crossed*.

I will leave you all for now with a couple of pics of my boys, just cause they are so dang adorable..... The first is Daniel at a playarea when I met up with my local crochet/knit group and the second is JJ getting ready to go to bed.

You do lovely work. Keep on crocheting and learn more stitches and try to do some doileys. You will enjoy some dainty work also. That will be fun too. I did not think I could do it but it is exactly the same except you are using steel hooks instead of the big crochet hooks. I think you are doing a great job. My you keep busy. God Bless You. I hope you take your boys to church too. They would love that too.

Absolutely gorgeous baby blanket! I love the soft look of it. The ribbon just adds that special touch.
