Three New Baby Blankets


First bit of important news. Between now and December 15th you can save 20% off of everything in my Etsy shop. This includes all toys, all rattles, all hats, and all blankets! Be sure to use coupon code: WINTER20.

I’ve been crocheting more than toys lately. With the cooler weather, my toddler has found his love of blankets (here is a post about the one I made for him while I was pregnant) and now you can find pink/purple, yellow, and burgundy baby blankets in my Etsy shop. I love the texture and warm that a yarn blanket provides. Each blanket is made in acrylic yarn that is both soft and practical (stain resistant and can be cleaned in the washing machine and dryer). They are sure to last many years, and hopefully be passed down to a second generation.

Recent Projects–Halloween, Bunny, Mer-folk, Blanket


This year for Halloween, I was considering a few different ideas for a toddler costume: Yoda, Pikachu, Monkey, Oscar the Grouch. Lately had been learning animal sounds, and he loved to “buck, buck, buck!”.  I made the chicken costume using Red Heart SuperSaver, acrylic yarn. The buttons added to each feather allows them to be removed and replaced anywhere on the sweater base. The bottom tutu can also be removed.



Once in a while, I find a few hours to myself to work on rattle orders. I am also working on a new bunny pattern.


With these cooler nights I have started working on a blanket for my bed using an entrelac pattern. I am using my largest hook, a plastic 11.50mm (p) hook.
