I don’t crochet as fast as many people, especially with the carpal tunnel and a pinched ulna nerve, but I do what I can as I truly enjoy making items for the babies.
Here are the little Christmas hats I made. I tried something different for the pompoms on top. I am TERRIBLE at making yarn pompoms. So......remember when I was making Peyton’s Elmo hat? I had a light bulb moment when I was making the eyes and nose for it. I decided to use the pattern from those to make stuffed pompoms for the baby hats! For me, making them that way took a lot less time and I wasted a whole lot less yarn. When ever I try to make them where you wrap yarn around cardboard and trim it up.....I kept trimming and trimming and never was satisfied. By the time I would get them done, they were pretty stinking puny. So, I tried the stuffed eyeballs route this time and I think they turned out pretty good. At least I am satisfied with how they look.
Here’s my first little blanket. I got this really pretty yarn at Goodwill! The red and green are made by Caron and they are called Victorian Christmas Gold. I suppose the gold is because of the metallic thread in it. The green is called balsam. Not sure about the red because it didn’t have a label. I’m not sure if they make either one of these anymore.
My picture didn’t turn out very good, but this diaper shirt is made from the green that I used on the blanket above.
This blanket is just a rectangular granny square.
This is just half red and half white. I made the border using a strand of each color. Just pretty basic but kinda cute.
My cat picture this time for this post is Rocky again. He just seems to like getting his picture taken more so than Baby. He was sprawled out on the love seat, getting his afternoon nap in. He was out, big time. He didn’t even flinch when the flash went off.
Sure looking pretty chunky in this picture. I obviously don’t feed him, ha ha.
That’s it for this time. Take care all.
