I started crocheting to make baby blankets for my unborn babies. This was actually years before the actual babies came along. My first blanket was baby blue and yellow for the boy I was certain I was going to have.
When my husband and I were to the point of actually wanting to have children, I decided I needed a girl blanket, too, or I would definitely have a girl and have to hurry to make the blanket. I was still finishing the blanket when my beautiful baby girl made her entrance to this world. One more daughter later, and no more children to come, I have no idea what I did with that blue and yellow blanket!
Since my early baby blanket making days, I have crochet numerous projects and written several patterns. I hope my collection of patterns will continue to grow with my growing love of crochet. I am planning on designing patterns other than baby-themed ones, but baby stuff is just so darn cute!
Recent update: I am now starting to donate my crocheted items to charity! I’m so excited! Hooray for giving back!
