Did you see my previous post of Peyton’s cupcake hat? Well, the pink in this sweater and hat set is what was left over from that. I knew there wasn’t enough of it to make the whole set so I did the rest of it in Pound of Love White yarn. I like the way it turned out. Should make a nice little set for Easter.
Remember awhile back I got a really good buy of a box of yarn at my local Goodwill? This is made from yarn from that box. It is Jamie sparkle yarn and it was pretty fine yarn so I used 2 strands, one of white and one of light pink. I like the way it turned out. This was the first time I’d made one of these cocoons but they seem to be pretty popular with some of the moms nowadays so I thought I’d give one a try. Kind of hard to see the sparkly in my picture but it’s there!
Last summer I think it was, I started posting about a bright stripes baby blanket I was working on. It kind of got set aside as a UFO for awhile but I finally picked it back up and finished it. All of the brights are mostly Red Heart Super Saver yarn. I knew I didn’t have enough of any one of the colors to make something so using them up in this blanket turned out nice so they didn’t go to waste. Sure helped use up some of my scrap stash.
These two sweaters and hat are made from one skein of yarn. It’s another of my good buys from Goodwill. I remember I only paid 88 cents for the skein but can’t remember exactly what the yarn was. I THINK it was a sport weight yarn, I do remember it was Bernat and the color was called something like buttercup. It’s very soft and should be nice against a baby’s skin.
This rectangle blanket was fun to make. I’m not big on making blankets, I just don’t have the patience so I don’t make too many of them but this one wasn’t bad.
Last summer when our God’s Tiny Angels group was having our sweater drive, our group leader put everyone’s names in a hat that contributed sweaters for a chance to win a prize and by golly I won! Was ever excited! I won 10 skeins of Red Heart Super Saver yarn and this blanket is made from some of that yarn. Haven’t figured out what else I’m going to make out of my winnings yet but you can bet it will probably something for the babies.
For this little blanket I did the middle in double crochet then I did rounds of granny square or shell stitches, just to be different :)
Some of the hospitals like the little diaper shirts so I made two of them with Pink Pound of Love and edged them in white.
A little burial set but fortunately I had enough yarn to make a blanket to go with all of it. Again, very simple but made of soft Pound of Love again. I’ve included a close up of just the gown and hat.
I had a partial skein of the green I Love This Yarn left over from another project so I made the bodice out of it and finished the rest of it off with white Pound of Love.
That’s it for this time. Wish it was more but the old carpal tunnel and pinched ulnar nerve sometimes limits my crocheting so I just keep on doing what I can, knowing every little bit helps.
