It's been a long while since I've crafted. Too long. It felt good to whip out the needle and make a little something up. There is a baby shower this weekend for someone at church. I thought that I should use what I had on hand to make the new baby a little something. Funny thing...this is the first time I made something for someone outside my family. After making up the gift I thought I should jump back into finishing off Jed's blanket that I was in the process of making some months ago. I think if I start now I should finish in time for the cold weather. Assuming we get cold weather this year.
I came across this very easy and very quick pattern. I am so thankful I did as it was the one I used to make Jedidiah's sweater, which he never wore, that got passed down to Jonah and Aubrey. I love that sweater, but didn't save the pattern. I came across it on Ravelry. It's called: Baby It's Cold Outside Sweater. It is crocheted in one piece. I love crochet for it's simplicity and the fact that you can get results in decent time. I would like to venture more into knitting soon, but we'll see. Knitting seems to be more of a foreign language to me.
For the booties I came across this great site called, Crochet Dreamz. Really neat designs! I bought the X-Strap shoe pattern and whipped them up last night and finished putting on the buttons and flower this morning. I really love how they turned out. Not perfect, but perfectly cute :-)
Just two pictures to share:
I only edited the photos since I couldn't get them to rotate! Ha, ha!
I'm sharing this on Crunchy Catholic Momma's blog, and Small Things blog.
