Elena’s new hat and scarf

I had hours on the train going up to visit the family in Michigan to work with her yarn, so this is finally what I came up with. This boucle yarn made it really hard to see my stitches when crocheting, but it still turned out cute!

Finished baby afghans!

Yay!  I have two finished baby afghans to display.  I like working on things, but sometimes they don’t get finished so this is definite progress!!  The yellow one is half double crochet with a shell border in white.  The striped one is a basic ripple in double crochet.



The edging on the white and yellow blanket was something like:  slip stitch in the 1st stitch, chain 2 *skip 2 stitches, 5 double crochets into next stitch, skip next 2 stitches, single crochet into next stitch, repeat from * to end and finish off.

Crocheted baby sweater

I can’t believe I was able to make this in one day!  The pattern creator said it was possible, but I still doubted.  It worked!!  Here’s the link to a great website and this pattern.  Crochet Me – Baby It’s Cold Outside sweater. It’s my first try at clothing and I think it worked out great!  =)
