Spring is on its way, and a little sunshine will be nice.  I completed my next pattern over the weekend and made two sample sets… I am hoping I got all the little quirks worked out and I will be posting the free pattern later this week for these cute little baby Cocoon & Hat Sets.  I tossed around the thought of what to call the pattern and since the sweet little yellow one was the first one completed, I decided to call them Shells & Sunshine Cocoon and Hat Set !

.

I will be carefully going over the pattern a couple more times to make sure it works before I post it.  The pattern is simple and works up  quickly.  The set could be made up in just a few hours if you had a baby shower to go too!  The set is for newborn – 3 months.

.

These 2 sets will be delivered as usual to Alpine Originals to put up for sale.  Like I was saying last post, they are participating later this month in the our city’s Art Walk… The display they have this month is focusing on artists with children’s items.  So… I have been working at record speed to make several items that fit in that category!

Another weekend and time to start another project!  My Sunburst Granny Square Blanket I started last a couple of weeks ago is coming along great!  But, that one is for me and it was time to make something for Alpine Original’s, the little store where I sell my crochet…

.

So… I set aside the Sunburst Granny just for a few days and started this adorable Granny Square Baby Blanket.  I have a large stash of great yarn and was able to pick a beautiful combination.   This is the pattern my Grandmother Beatrice Ryan taught me at 10 years old… It has regained its popularity recently and I am blessed to have been taught this skill that will hopefully inspire many others to learn and love the Art of Crochet !

So, here’s to teaching the Art of Crochet!!! Pass it on…
