~ 2 more baby cocoons ~
Finished up 2 more baby cocoons for the hospital. The left cocoon was crocheted with the yarn that I won from Astri of 'Apple Blossom Dreams' (thanks again Astri) when she had her guessing game about her scooter, and a strand of really, really thin acrylic that I had bought from Ebay a long time ago. It measures 10" across by 14" top to bottom. The cocoon on the right was crocheted with Red Heart Super Saver in 'soft white' and an unknown variegated that I found in my stash. It measures 9" across by 12" top to bottom.
I've started a baby blankie with variegated greens that I bought from AC Moore. I don't know the brand of the yarn because it came in one of the mill-ends bags, but I have a suspicion that it's Caron One Pounder. The pattern I'm using for the blankie is from here: http://hooksandyarns.blogspot.com/2011/08/straight-up-granny.html
I'm going to be taking a little break from making baby things because I've also started working on a project for the trailer at the campground. I'm going to be crocheting curtain toppers for all the windows. There are 3 single windows and 3 double windows. Right now they look like this - just plain and yucky:
The curtain toppers won't be anything too fancy - just something to dress them up a little and add some color. :)
