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!
… 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.
I found some easy and cute baby boots on Pinterest, so decided to adapt the pattern to crochet and here is how they turned up:
Here are the instructions:
(All stitches were half double crochet stitches)
Then sew it all together:
A1 with B1, A2 with B2, ans both Cs with D
This gives you boots for 1-3 month baby, approximately. I suppose it is easy to “scale-up” but haven´t tried yet…
Now you can go and make as many variations as you want 🙂
Some examples made by me:
Why not have a mismatched pair of boots?? 🙂
Basic grey and blue – for a boy
I like the detail in Red 🙂
Now that Baby M is here, so are the photos of her Baby Shower! 🙂
I just love the Hot air balloon theme! Couldn’t wait anymore to organise a party with this theme… So baby m and mummy M wet the “lucky ones” 😀
Mummy M best friend did this beautiful “diaper cake” in the shape of a stroller, with many sweet gifts on it:
I think Mummy M and Daddy F will have a good time changing diapers during the nights:
Everybody brought something to eat or drink. Yummy!!
**** Thanks M for letting us prepare the party at your place! ***
Who’s next?? Any suggestions for party themes?
