The Sweet Baby Blanket is a wonderful welcome home keepsake for a newborn.  Nothing says welcome home than a brand new baby blanket.  This Sweet Baby Blanket is a beginner pattern and has a pattern repeat.  You will be done before you know it.

School is out, summer is finally here.  Feels like a heat wave is going on, but I won’t complain much about the weather.  In a few months I’ll be looking for some bright and sunny days, so I welcome HEAT, bring it on!

I really thought I would ease up on crocheting during the summer and focus on sewing. Crocheting reigns supreme still.   Instead of buying new yarn I’m using what I have in my stash for a bit.  With many colors of a few skeins here and there the perfect things to make are baby items, loveys, and more hats.

I wanted to see what I could design with a pound of yarn.  What fell off my hook was the Sweet Baby Blanket.  I love doing repeat patterns with a few stitches.
