I picked up a book of cute little crochet animals in the post-Christmas sales. Calum was one of the first boys to have a flick through it and requested that I make this wee fellow first.
He has added him to his growing collection of crochet animals.
Yes, that is a snail. He requested him from another book.
Now that 'Lumpy' is all finished and tucked up with his animal friends (and Calum) I can get working on my next project.
My cousin and her husband had their first baby, a little girl, last week. She is the first of my cousins on that side of the family to have a baby. If my grandparents were still living they would now have their first great-grand-daughter after 7 great-grandsons.
So since she will be bombarded by clothes, as first-borns usually are, I thought I would get making a granny square blanket for them instead.
But I just don't 'do' overtly pink things (just as well really!) and so have chosen these colours instead.
It also means that once the baby pink stage has passed the blanket can still be used!
Has anyone else been crafting this week?
One of these days I'll get a proper linky tool up and running. If you saw my post about eczema last week you will know what has been taking up most of my time! I'm pleased to say it's settling down a bit the last couple of days.
