Pinterest gave me a renewed interest in crochet and I have had at least one crochet project in the works constantly since I started back at it in the late summer. Thanks to fabulous projects on Pinterest, some great videos on You Tube and free patterns from bloggers and Red Heart I have been busy.
My most recently completed project was a crib sized (lap sized) blanket that I will be sending to my mom to add to our donation stash for the local cancer center there. It was an easy project and I love ripples! I need to find some great colors so I can make one for me. I used the Windsor Ripple throw pattern from Red Heart this one.
Since this one is now finished I started a baby blanket for a friend. Good thing her due date isn’t until April so I have a little bit of time to finish it. I haven’t really worked on it much lately because I have been busy scrapbooking/card making instead. I need to get back at it though. I am using the Rickrack Rainbow Baby Blanket pattern, also from Red Heart, for it. The colors are a little bit off…the pink looks kind of salmon colored but it is really a soft pink.
Have you recently fell in love with a new hobby or picked up a renewed interest in an old favorite? I would love to hear about it!
