A Little Something for a Special Little Someone!

A good friend and hub recently welcomed their "little man" into the world. I wanted to make something for the baby and send it to them ( They live faaaar away!). But with the holidays and guests and everything else, this little project got stalled!

Anyway, my new year resolution and the fact that the little guy may grow out of it by the time I'm done, got me back on track and I finished this crochet blankie and a teeny tiny bunny to go with it. Most of you must have already recognized the pattern. I think I'm the last person to jump on the Tiramisu Baby Blanket bandwagon . I followed the original pattern, except making 111 chains in the beginning instead of 91 and I used Bernat Baby Sport yarn in Fun print. I must admit that I am not much of a knitter, but the the person who inspired me to pick up my knitting needles, Julie Williams has her cute rabbit pattern here.

In case anybody is curious about the new year resolution that got me going, I decided I should stop buying and hoarding craft supplies till I've used all the stuff in my stash. Ha ha! I broke that resolution twice already. To my defense, I only broke it to keep another of my resolutions - to get serious about sewing! And, who knew that Joann Stores would have their Winter Warm up Fabric Sale in mid-January? Blame it on them!!!!!!
