Crochet Baby Blankets

Hello Ladies!  Isn't this a cute little face?!


It's a Knickerbocker toy that I found at a flea market last week.  I couldn't resist it!

Well, you know what a crazed crocheter I've been lately. 
I had an urge to make baby blankets and just couldn't stop myself!


I've made four in various colors in Red Heart yarn.  Really durable for babies.
Not too big to be used for doll blankets, too.

My plan is to put them in our etsy shop.


I hope you've enjoyed seeing what I've been working on. 
Wishing you much happiness!
Twyla

Oh how sweet, Twyla! i love how you staged the lamb and the doll. I never knew knicker bocker toys before but now I do because you introduced me!

I was thinking about you the other day and wondering what you were crocheting now. All the blankets are just adorable! I love baby blankets. I have 2 that I use as lap robes or to take the cold off my office chairs.

Have a great day! ♥

Your crocheted baby blankets are beautiful! I hope someday I can do the stitches well enough to actually make something. I am trying to teach myself.

I posted about baby blankets today, too! (You know what they say about "great minds"...) Mine isn't finished yet, though.
Have a great day.

Twyla, you make me laugh! You are like me when an idea takes over. It's hard to stop! I am about to attempt to make 13 dress potholders for my tag swap without a pattern! I was like you with baby blankets making little potholders by the dozens in every color. I couldn't stop myself! I had never heard of this little rabbit. It is so very sweet! Have a lovely week Twyla! Elizabeth
