A few things I've made have been for my sister-in-law who is expecting. Her shower was this past weekend. I crocheted the "Soft Shells Jacket" from Crochet! Magazine's May 2011 issue. Intimidated by the "Experienced Level" disclaimer, I gave it a try anyway. There were a few bumps at the beginning, but it all came together in the end.
The second thing I made for her was thank you cards. I tried to go with their nursery colors. I really like how they came out. Have I told you lately that I love wood type?
...And then here are some random guys mixed in. I found a bookmark pattern and a doily pattern that I can't get out of my head. Whenever I am sitting, I want to start making one of them.
Left- right: I used a C hook,
the other two I used the correct hook, a number 7.
I hope you made some cute and creative cards for the people in your life.
Show some love today
(and wearing pink & red is always fun, too)
