And the blanket half done:


Hello! So I have found something that seems to be the "in" thing in crocheting. They are called graphgans. Basically you crochet a picture into your blankets. I learned newly popular technique from the Repreat Crafter Me facebook page. If you search "Graphgans" on Pinterest you will find
a lot. There are also different ways to obtain this. I have tried the Corner 2 Corner version. First I made 2 Corner to Corners with solid colors to get the hang of it. Then I designed a heart pattern which I will be sharing here. It seemed an intro was necessary before the pattern. As usual youtube 
is a great place to find a video to show you how to do the "C2C" blankets. Here are the ones I used
to learn:
How to start your Corner to Corner: Corner 2 Corner
How to decrease: Decreasing Corner 2 Corner
Here is the link to doing a C2C graphhan: C2C Graphgans
And if you want to try a c2c graphgans here is how to use bobbins: Bobbin use in C2C

So these are the videos I used if they don't work for you I'm sure there are plenty more to try.

*the blanket in the picture is approximately 18"x18". It is a preemie blanket. I will be putting the written pattern up for it next*

On the Needles (and Hook)

HI! Just thought I'd share what I was working on this weekend. On the needles I have hat for Pine Ridge Reservation. I'm using Brown Sheep Lanaloft WW yarn. And this pattern: Nice & Knit Beanie
And I'm also crocheting a preemie blanket using the Leaping Stripes & Blocks blanket at Moogly Crochet.  I'm using Pound of Love in Pink, Peach and Off White. I'm liking this pattern a lot. She also has a matching hat and a matching sweater. She converted my Kelly's Sweater into two different verstions. The top is the same but she made the bottoms fancier.

I'm Back!!!!

Its been a very long time since my last post. My old laptop and Blogger were not getting along. Now I have a new laptop so hopefully this will work. I found these awesome color inspirations at Pinterest using five colors of Red Heart Super Saver. These are the ones I've tried so far. I made newborn blankets on my knitting machine.

They have so many more great color combos but it's hard to find all the colors you want to use.
And here are some of the outfits I've made for the babies

I'll try to post more often, I have more pics to share. See you soon!
