Waiwow: baby blanket and hat to match.

I can't believe it's almost time for my newest niece to be here! The time really flies when your not pregnant! Anyway this week I'm working on some beanies and a blanket for her! 

For the blanket i just used a traditional granny stitch pattern until it was 36"x36". Size I needle.  I started with 2 rows of raspberry then switched to pink camp for one row. Then every 5th row I changed to the pink camo color for one row then back to the raspberry !

I am just in love with them! I'll let you in on a secret.... I made these both in one sitting! I got all my tools together made sure everyone was taken care of and got to work! Of course with three kids and a hubby I had to get up a few times but I got it done! 

I hope she loves it. I just can't wait to meet her!

My crochet breezy purse.

I love crochet and I love crochet with tassels. I needed a quick , fun, stylish , gift for my sil who was turning 16. I took all these elements and created my crochet breezy purse. 
I absolutely love it! So did she! She told me after the party that she had been looking for a new purse and it was a perfect fit.
So I shared it on Instagram and got a request for a white and orange version. It turned out great also. Within a few days of that one being done I received another request.
The third was a request for pink and purple . I then remembered I had a great purple multi colored yarn that would match the pink. Every time I finish a purse I'm blown away at how adorable they turn out. Wonder what color will be next?
