Dreamy Lace Baby Throw

“Dreamy Lace Baby Throw” is the name of the Lion Brand pattern that I used for this sweet little baby blanket, which I found on Ravelry.  I was looking for a quick and easy pattern that was pretty, worked up quickly, and was easily committed to memory.  Check.  Check.  Check. The blanket is made of […]

Mitered Granny Square Baby Blanket

I saw this blanket at the Crochet Again blog, and there was never any doubt that I would make one.  I just loved her take on the traditional granny square and, as luck would have it, the yarn colors in my bottomless stash allowed me to recreate her stunning combination.

Baby Love II

Back in June, I blogged about my hairdresser’s pregnancy with her first baby.  Quick recap:  She and her husband chose to be surprised by the baby’s sex.  She had a premonition that the baby was a girl.  And a dream of her “passed-on” grandma told of a girl…..remember?  I knitted a pretty pink blanket because […]
