'Tis the season...

...for crochet!!

I made this small lovey for the sweet little girl of a virtual friend of mine. Little E just happens to love blankies, and when I found out I decided it was the perfect way to thank them for donating a pair of Dr. Seuss books (our favourites!!) to their local library in Thomas' memory, and for making a beautiful scrapbook for Thomas' birthday.

I intended the lovey to be a bit more decorative, but I'm simple (and by that I mean not as skilled as I wish I was) and this was all I could manage. I desperately need someone to teach me how to properly crochet in rounds so I can expand my repertoire someday very, very soon...

In the meantime, I hope E enjoys cuddling with her new lovey, and I hope she feels the hugs in every stitch!

It's so beautiful! All I can do is knit scarves. It's an absolutely beautiful blanket. Maybe you can hold crochet classes online? (Kidding. Unless you actually wanted to.)

That looks fabulous! I tried to crouchet a poncho for Kayleigh last fall. DYK it's only half-done and in a plastic bag in my closet :-)

Maybe I can bake you some cookies in exchange for a little poncho? :-P

This is beautiful! I love crochet!
In fact, I finished a flowered blanket for my litle sister.
