Liana’s Baby Blanket

I was looking through my back postings for crochet projects and realized that I never posted any pictures of the baby blanket I made for our newest granddaughter, Liana Rose Gibson.
So, here you go!

The pattern is Bavarian Lullaby, from Learn to Do Bavarian Crochet (Annie’s Attic: Crochet).

It is a beautiful pattern, but the special stitch involved put a tremendous strain on my right index finger, holding all the loops on the hook. I ended up having to not crochet for about a month to heal that finger. So, while it looks lovely, I suspect I will not make many more using this pattern, at least not anything of this size.

I also made a few of baby doll blankets for Miss Munchkin this past spring, per her request.

A snowflake motif from Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs: 144 circles, hexagons, triangles, squares, and other unexpected shapes.

A simple ripple design.

This is a Wiggles square pattern, which was fun to make and has a very cool 3-D effect. Can you tell Miss Munchkin’s favorite color is pink?

And a crocheted brain!

This cute brain pattern came from Cornflower Blue Studio.

Miss Munchkin was a bit disappointed with the brain, as she somehow thought it was a hat, since the original pattern website shows the brain sitting on a head. I might have to try to “attach” the brain to a hat for her, although she tells me now that she no longer likes wearing hats. Go figure!

Playing With Cotton Yarn


Having completed four cotton place mats (& not having enough yarn to make a fifth) I decided to play around a bit, making some plant pads.

I’m going to make some more to use as hot pads for the few times we actually eat at the table!

These designs are from Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs: 144 circles, hexagons, triangles, squares, and other unexpected shapes,
which is my new favorite crochet book. I made this baby doll blanket from Miss Munchkin from one of the motifs shown in the book.

It has given me many ideas for so many projects!
