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.
The doll belonged to my son who is now
23 26 and he was the perfect little model.
