I started to knit this cardigan last summer. But then I got distracted with other knitting and crochet projects and forgot about it for a while. Also, the baby arrived in October so not so much free time since then! 😁 So when I went back to this project to finish it I realised it would be too big for next winter or fall, so I had to finish it quick! And then I did. So it must be true, when you have deadlines you find the time to finish stuff! 😂 It worked in this case.
Pattern bought on ravelry, it’s called Snug (link)
I made a few of these bibs for my son, and find them very useful as well as cute! So now I made one for a friend’s baby.
Pattern found on Pinterest, link here.
It’s very easy to follow and quick to make!
After “Mr Fox”, I chose to do frog, just because I had a nice green yarn ready to use… 🙂
And yes, I love using IKEA cushions as backgrounds 😂😂
Pattern of Mr Frog from the same source as Mr Fox (here).
… with bits done here and there I completed my first crochet rattle!
First it looked like this:
(And this bit was done by the end of February….) Looks like a microphone!! X-)
And finally yesterday I made it look like a Fox:
I think it’s pretty cool, but I’m sure all that bubba will want to do is try to eat it!
I’m now working on another one, that will be a frog (hopefully….)
Patterns from here.
Here are some of the baskets I made while pregnant. I thought they would be both useful and pretty to decorate the baby’s room (which for now is our room…). In fact they work nicely to store socks, shoes, creams and I have a bigger one where nappies fit perfectly!
I stopped here, because I ran out of blue, white and red. Now will it just hang on the wall as some sort of “crochet art piece” or should make a pillow cover out of it?
Looking at it now I regret not having put this colours together before for a scarf or something…
… make something using them…! Now, what’s it going to be… I don’t know. But I like the colour mix! So I’ll just improvise until I run out of most of them.
