007/365-2013 – My first completed crochet project!

Crochet Baby Blanket

This is something I am extremely proud of, I always like to make something for my baby before they arrive and this time I decided I wanted to try my hand at crochet.  I had never done it before and so I asked a very lovely lady called Samantha from Crafty Mama if she could give me a crochet lesson.  Not only did Samantha teach me how to get started, she also came to my rescue when I ran out of the purple wool with only half a row left to do and dropped me off a ball that she had in her own personal stash.

Last night I finally completed my baby blanket and I LOVE it!  It’s not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but I made it especially for my little Jelly Bean.  I must admit crochet is a little bit addictive, I’m already looking online to see what I can do for my next project, it’s a shame he isn’t a little girl because there are some gorgeous hats with some beautiful big flowers on them.

Have you tried anything new lately?

    Looks great for your first project. I made a crochet spiderman hat for my son and now have to do one for my nephew.

      Oooh that sounds cool, I’ve been looking online for ideas for a nice baby boys hat to make but I could do a spiderman one for Beanie Boy 🙂
