Babies + Crochet



Yay for finishing baby gifts for people! Finishing projects is so satisfying!

Latest - 1 baby hat with an awesome button made from wood waste, and 1 round ripple baby blanket.

Bring on the babies.

Actually, don't, I'm still way way behind!


(The pattern I used for the blanket is here: http://woven-stars.tripod.com/rippletutorial/)

Cool rug! I love the shape and am trying to visualize how you made it! I haven't seen that shape crocheted before. Also, your cat looks just like my cat, Samba.

Thanks for commenting on the floating home post. In the series I'm hoping to put up some pictures from around the world. If you happen to have any photos of quirky or non-quirky ones from Vancouver, I'd love to use them in the series.

That blanket is so cute! I like the colors and it just looks really complicated. I'm sure someone will just love it.

Thanks guys - I'll go add the link to the pattern in the post. It's not hard to do at all!

Sharon, I think I've got some pics of floating homes I can send you - I'll dig around for them!

Ahh Noodle looks like he wants to pounce on the blanket.

Lovely projects!
I'm just getting into crochet again after about 15 years (ahem)- love the look of the baby blanket - but unfortunately the link that you've posted doesn't work.
I've tried searching for "woven-stars ripple" in as many combos as I can think of, but no luck!
Could you please check the link and maybe repost? I'd be really grateful - I've got a wave of friends having babies and this looks like just the job!
thanks

Hey beth - sorry about that, I'll go fix the link for you!

The key term to search for (in case my link breaks again) is 'round ripple'. You should find several patterns that way!

Brilliant, thanks so much - do appreciate it!
