During my recent blogging hiatus, I was NOT on hiatus from crochet. Quite the opposite. My friends have been producing babies in very rapid succession, so I have tried to keep up. Here are some of the things I've made since my last crochet post (Tanooki Mario):
First: rainbow cake slice!
This was a really fun one. As soon as he had the cake in his hands, he tossed it across the room. It was great - crocheted food is very durable!
Next up: peach baby blanket!
This was for my law friends' kid, and the mother loves orange, so I thought this would be appropriate. It was actually a really fun pattern to crochet from one of my favorite baby blanket collections.
The next one is probably my favorite one out of all of these:
That's right, a gnome with a little flower and mushroom. (I bought the book just for this pattern. And it was worth it.) Obviously for my friend Rob, who I've already made a gnome for. The two gnomes are now in a standoff on Rob's entertainment unit.
Second to last is a baby sweater that I knitted for a woman in my lawyer mentor circle.
She is a really sweet person and I wanted to do something fun for the little baby shower we had for her. She didn't know what she was having, and the sweater turned out a little more for a girl than for a boy, but it's OK because she had a girl! Apparently I am a good guesser. This one was from a knit pattern calendar.
And finally, a set of baby blankets for some twins that my law friends are having. The one on the left is from a new baby blanket square book I got, and the one on the right is just a big double crochet square.
Yes, of COURSE each twin got its own blanket! It's a boy and a girl, and the parents' colors for the nursery are brown and green, which I thought was a really great gender-neutral pick (and, of course, my favorite colors together).
I've done some more things, but that's about all the photos I can fit into one post. Happy crocheting (and knitting)!
