I recently went a little crazy buying yarn and baby crochet pattern books at the fabric store. Here's the first project I completed, for my boss's little boy Benjamin due in October. It's a "snuggle blankie" - basically a small blanket with feet & hands and a teddy-bear head. I added a little blue heart too. It turned out nicely, although this super fuzzy yarn is a lot harder to work with than I expected. It's hard to count your stitches when you can't see them!
I have a lot more cute patterns picked out that I want to make, some for Baby Conan of course but also for my brother's little girl (due in november) and for all the other babies I know too, both born & unborn. :)
