meet.make.crochet-along: round ripple baby blanket.

Crochet round ripple baby blanket

With all the baby blanket making going on in these parts, how fitting was it for Alicia to choose a baby blanket for September's crochet-along project! I have been eyeing this pattern for awhile, so it was perfect timing.

meet.make.giraffe amigurumi.

Jerry the Giraffe crochet amigurumi

So I accomplished a big milestone..... I finished my first amigurumi! I'm so very excited how he turned out. I think I may be addicted now, I can't wait to make more! It helps that I bought a big bag of polyfil too so I need to use it all up.

Oh, hello again! Is this another addition to our baby blanket series you ask? Why yes it is!! I've got another one to share with you today. And while you're here, why not have a peak at my granny square blanket, and Steph's additions here and here!!
I think it is fair to say this was definitely the season on baby blankets.So for your enjoyment, here's the blanket I made for Cindy and baby Nell! Ps. Could she BE any cuter? :)

meet.make.root beer floats.

While we were doing our photo-shoot with Nell, we decided we needed a quick and easy treat to indulge in! 

Phillips Intergalactic Root Beer Float

There is nothing new about root beer floats... but these ones were extra tasty as we were using Phillip's Intergalactic Root Beer!

meet.make.crochet puppy hat.

Crochet puppy hat

Are you sick of all our crochet posts yet? I hope not.... because there are still more to come! We do have some other stuff lined up too though, so stay tuned! 

I made this hat for baby Jack, who also received the blanket here. My friend Lindsay is a big dog lover; their dog Levi is an integral part of their family. So when I decided to make a character hat I knew a puppy would be my choice.

Hi everyone, it's Cindy! Here's the reason why I've been MIA from the blog... say hello to baby Nell!   Here she is on her one-month birthday.

meet.make.crochet sleepy owl hat.

So I received a 'not so subtle' hint from our friend Lindsay prior to the birth of her adorable baby Jack. The message went a little like "look at this hat! Isn't it so cute!"... Hmmm... I take this as "maybe you could make this for me?"
CHALLENGE (delightfully) ACCEPTED!

Monday, 9 September 2013 quilt.

Guess what? This isn't a crochet post! WHATTT you say? We know, it's been so long! Part of the reason it is not a crochet project is that technically none of us made this... but it was too amazing not to share with you all. 

Our friend Lindsay made Nell a BEAUTIFUL quilt from scratch. It is crafted to perfection and definitely retail worthy! It was her first time making a quilt believe it or not, she has serious mad skills when it comes to sewing.

I woke up this morning, and realized I had totally forgotten about the sheepish bloom drop planned for this weekend by Meredith over at One Sheepish Girl! Whoops! So I quickly decided to crochet up a flower and go find a home for it....

Thursday, 5 September 2013 blankets: part 3

It's time for another baby blanket post! You can find part one here and part two here. Can I just throw out how difficult it is to get good pictures of blankets for the ol' blog here? We have had a heck of a time taking photos that showcase the blankets! If anyone has any tips we would love to hear them! 

I made this blanket for the lovely Lindsay, one of my nearest and dearest friends. (She was my maid of honor at my wedding) I started this blanket prior to her giving birth, but the baby had plans of his own and came 3 weeks early. Jack Andrew was born a few weeks ago, and he is the cutest!! I had to frantically work away to get it done in time to give to her.

Tuesday, 3 September 2013 blankets: part 2

As we've probably mentioned more than once.. there has been many new additions to the world lately, including my new baby niece Rose! I had previously made my first knit baby blanket for her brother Luke when he was born, so of course I had to keep the tradition afloat! So here comes another addition to our baby blanket series!

The baby crafting continues: pom pom toque.

When my coworker told me she was expecting in the fall, I decided I needed a quick baby craft to whip up for her! 
I really love making baby hats. They're fast, creative, and just oh so teenytiny and cute!

When searching for a project, I came across Sara's merry messy life blog and her pattern for a baby pom pom hat.  
The mama doesn't want to learn the gender of her lil'sprout, so I decided to use some 'earthy tones' for the project. I think it turned out really well!
