Baby Stuff

Elena's Springtime Cotton Bib

I've been crocheting baby items recently. Since baby clothes are small, they're fast and satisfying to crochet. Sometimes I need small projects to keep me going.
Yesterday, Easter Sunday, I knew that I was going to run into two babies. Eli is a feisty little 11 month old boy and Elena is about 6 months older and the sweetest and smartest little girl. Babies are messy. Babies need bibs. I crocheted what are essentially cotton washcloths with ties attached. Elena's white, pink, orange and lime green bib matched her outfit perfectly. Eli didn't model his bib for me, but I hope to receive an action photo soon from his folks.

Yes, babies find me irrestible

A couple of weeks ago I was at an LYS and bought some Dalegarn Baby Ull wool in leaf green and royal blue on sale. I crocheted a little girl's cardigan. This will probably be for my cousin's new grandaughter who is expected to arrive this summer. I will crochet a little hat to match the cardigan.
What have you been crocheting lately?

Love those bibs! This baby is a drooler, so I might just have to make a couple of those.

You just know I'm going to copy that bib. I love the sweater too. I'm making another ripple scarf, am about to return to my afghan, and have my first crocheted (baby) sweater in the pipeline. Viva crochet!

GORGEOUS sweater. And that Elena. I think she may have stole my heart.
