Oh Baby!


Is there something in the water or what? I have made soooo many baby afghans this past year. Here are few examples:


One of my DH's cousins had a grandbaby, Ameris, so I decided to do a darling afghan called Crochet Bunny Filet afghan. I used some stash yarn, Simply Soft, in a soft lavendar with a "K" hook and I reversed the Filet, so the spaces were solid and vice versa to make it more solid. Also, so that those cute little baby toes wouldn't poke through all the time...


Then my DH has a business friend who had their first child. They had a little boy and since the dad is a Baylor graduate, my DH wanted me to make something in Baylor colors. So I found this pattern called All Season Baby Throw. It goes super fast. I made it with I Love This Yarn, mainly because that is the washable WW yarn that you can get in the widest range of colors and with trying to match Baylor's colors that came in handy.

That pattern went so fast, that when my Mama asked me to make an afghan for a Church friend's new Grandson, I dug out some more stash yarn, Simply Soft and made this one up in some happy boy colors. She asked for this one with a really short deadline, so I told her she didn't get to pick the pattern, lol.
She really likes the Lyn's Round Ripple pattern and usually wants me to make that one.

But the real reason I make all of these is below. Look at these cuties with their custom hand-made afghans (and a matching sweater)...

Beyond that, I loved your post on the New Orleans trip and yes, the photos of food are making me humgry. I haven't been back post-Katrina but now I'm jonesing to go if only for that chocolate bread pudding. :)

I am trying to make my sister who goes to Baylor a scarf and i was wondering which green you used from I Love This Yarn. Was it the Dark Olive or the Forest? I am trying to order on line so it is hard to tell the color. Thanks so much!
