here are a few of the preemie blankets I have done so far for the preemies. I am working fast as I can to get at 30 done by myself to make sure we have enough for all our babies :-)I have almost 20 completed!
This is a warning for everyone who is using the # 40 I Love This yarn from Hobby Lobby. IT BLEEDS!!!!!!!!! Even when washing in cold water it will turn your red and white blankets,hats and booties to red and pink! Hobby Lobby has been made aware of this problem for over a year and it still has NOT been corrected! One of the ladies in my group emailed them last year and they told her it should only happen once! well once is too many as thats all it takes to ruin all your hard work. I wrote them last week and have yet to hear anything back from them So if I were you I would NOT use the # 40 red. I have switched to red heart super saver in the cherry red. At least it does not bleed :-)Sorry to be so negative about such a wonderful product but I know alot of you are making Christmas items for the babies and wanted you to be aware of the problem.
I am working hard as I can on Santa hats and preemie blankets. Here is 1 pic of some of the hats. I have not taken time to take pics of the blankets yet but hopefully soon. I am also getting ready to start stuffing some of the stockings as we go along here. today I rearranged some of my yarn and even though AC Moore is having a great sale starting tomorrow lets just say I DO NOT need anymore yarn. I need yarn aholics is what I need. I can't believe how much I have, its insane!!!!!! I need to stop and use up some of what I have. I keep telling myself that and then a sale comes along and there I go and come back with another bag full!!!!! lol.
well I did not get alot accomplished this week as I accidently took too much of 1 medicine and none of the other and about put myself in the hospital! however I am feeling much better today. I did finsh this newborn blanket and I made this newborn Christmas sweater set. I also made several Santa hats. I have not got the pom poms attached yet so don't have a pic. hoping to get back in the swing of things this week as I really did not crochet much this past week :-(
I wanted to make Santa hats for the babies this year so Peggy and I took the candy corn hat pattern from my site and just made the santa hat! it is made with ILTY red from hobby lobby. worked up in 20 minutes. My husband makes the pom poms! http://danettesangels.tripod.com/patterns/candy_corn_hat.html
these Halloween hats are made with Simply soft brites in Mango and the trim is Herschnners halloween yarn.The skeins are small and I really don't think the yarn is appropriate to use alone but it works great for trim as it does not touch the babies skin. 1 skein did all they trim on these hats
I love to crochet for babies and here is where I will share some pics of the items I make for my charity godstinyangels.com
I am married to my wonderful husband Richard and have 2 sons and 4 cats.
