Sorry Again

I'm trying now to get back into at the very least crafting of some sort. I'd really like a sewing machine and branch out into other craftiness. Right now I'm working on a Christmas present and for reasons that I don't want to ruin a surprise I'm not saying any more. Look out for updates here. I'm getting back into the swing of things.

I'm sorry about the break

I took a long break and I haven't gotten much crafting done since the brown and pink flower blanket. We've been pretty busy. I hope to soon make some more creations for my own baby. So stay tuned for some crafting!

More Pink and Brown Baby Blankets

So I made this baby blanket for someone that I work with. I really liked the pattern but I played with the colors to match a bit more of what I was told the baby's room would look like. This picture makes the blanket look uneven...its just the way i had it laying. It was scrunched in the middle...I tried.

This is a close up of the blanket with three of the flower colors.

That's Right. I Have A Model...

A while ago I said I was making something for someone and I didn't want them to see before it was done...here's the little guy in my very first crocheted baby sweater....

Baby AJ Relaxing in his awesome sweater!

Baby AJ Showing Off The Big Buttons.

Well the sweater is a little small. And the sleeves are short but Its my first sweater and now I know for next time. After he's done with it he can put it on a teddy bear or something.

I realized I have totally slacked on this blog. Shame on me! Well I will be getting back to posting some of my projects. For such a long time I was basically making the same thing for a bunch of different people. I had loved the pink, brown and white blanket pattern so much that everyone having a baby got one. So I figured it wasnt' worth reposting. So anyway, I did manage I think like 20 or so projects last year and I didn't display all of them. Then my camera died so I got two more out and I couldn't take pictures of them...so that was sad. So anyway, I'm back and I'll be crocheting my hands off. So stay tuned...hopefully someone out there is still reading.

January Projects

Since our computer was having technical difficulties I wasn't able to post my pictures of my projects from January. I figure its better late than never and finally I am able to post what I've created. Both projects were baby gifts. And it didn't dawn on me until now that for both gifts I made blankets with matching hats. I guess its a new trend.

This particular gift set was a baby shower gift for my friend who is having her baby in March. I completed the blanket in January...the sock monkey wasn't finished until February but it isn't a crocheted piece so I guess it doesn't count as one of my monthly projects. This was my first time hand sewing a stuffed animal. Well, my first time hand sewing anything. I found the pattern for the baby blanket and hat first in the book Stitch N Bitch Happy Hooker Book. When I saw the picture for the baby blanket and hat I thought that it would be way cool to make a sock monkey for the gift. While wandering through Fleet Farm I found the original Rockford Red Heel Socks with the sock monkey directions.

Here is the blanket that I made. The pattern called for a different border. As I was finishing the border of the blanket I thought that it looked kinda crappy so I did a different border. I am much happier with this border.

This is a close up of the blanet. The pattern called for two crocheted sock monkey heads.

This is a picture of the baby hat that came with the pattern.
This is a picure of the first sock monkey I have ever done. I know the ears aren't even but it gives him some character. I crocheted a little vest for him because I sewed his arms on unevenly. The vest hides the bad job I did on the arms.

This is the other project I did in January. Its another baby gift. I didn't get a chance to take pictures of that one but I re did the same pattern and blanket. I love how this looks. The little hat is so adorable. The pattern is easy and the blanket is durable.

Those are the projects I got done for January. I have completed a couple of February projects but I am waiting to show those until I finish the last project.
