There is a lovely yarn give-away at this blog, Not Your Average Crochet , which my stitching friend Ginny at
My Time Stitching let me know about. Go check it out. Just click the above links.


More Baby Gifts

June 21, 2012

I just finished up the second set of baby gifts I have been working on for the last couple months. This set has two pairs of socks, one is for newborn – 3 months and the 2nd pair is for 3 – 6 months. I also knitted a small soft toy. The funny thing about this toy is that it is a pattern for a lamb. But, when I put on the ears it looks like a bunny. I have now modified the pattern for the next time, less repeats of the pattern to make shorter ears and tail. My son thinks it looks like a bear and so the toy is a lamb-bunny-bear.

Now I can get back to stitching my RR’s.

Babies and gifts

June 9, 2012

Two of my co-workers are having babies. I just finished the gifts I knitted for the first one. I decided on a blanket, booties (which I posted earlier) and a toy.

Now for the next baby. I decided to make a cute lamb and socks only. The blanket took too long. With limited time I have to have projects that don’t take so long, otherwise I don’t have any time to work on other projects such as RR’s and personal stitching goals.
