I really hate having a blog post without a title, but sometimes I just have no idea what to say! I've been working on a few projects lately that have taken forever to finish! I'm maybe halfway through a scrappy granny circle afghan, and a quarter of the way through a striped giraffe. I'm trying to use up scraps, but I swear they are multiplying!! 

I also picked up this tank top that I started crocheting last year. I'm still not sure about it, but it's turning out cuter than I imagined!

And just for fun, here's a pic of our adorable pup laying next to the cat -- it's a miracle!

What have you been up to?

Getting Girly

My friend had a sweet baby girl earlier this year, and asked me to make a few things for her. My love language is gifts, so I was more than happy to oblige. After having two boys, she was ready for all things girly! She asked for the kisses hat and then I scoured her pinterest (okay, those are my boards)to see what else she wanted. Smart girl, right? haha

I decided to make matching mother / daughter t-shirt headbands as well as a pixie hat for the little Miss. Sadly, the mother headband was too small. But the baby headband has been getting tons of use. It makes my little crafty heart happy whenever I see her wearing it in pictures!

The pixie hat turned out really cute as well. I used up some scrap grey and pink yarn to make it. I love using up scraps!

Lastly, these bon bons were not for Baby V, but just seemed to fit the color scheme. Cute, right?

This post has been awhile in the making. I actually made these back in February / March. My sister in law is pregnant with my first niece or nephew and I have not been able to stop making things for him / her. Thankfully, they aren't finding out what he or she is, so I can only do so much. They said that the nursery theme was animals, like giraffes and pandas. So I decided to crochet a few giraffe things.

First I made this amigurumi giraffe from Lion Brand. I love how the little guy turned out. Although, I feel like I have to tell people that he is a giraffe. hahaha

Next up I created my own giraffe hat! That's right. I made a pattern. I saw a few things that I liked in pinterest, but not the exact pattern. So I just went for it. I'm working on typing it up, if you are interested! I'm kind of in love with it!

Any other animal things that I should make for my new niece or nephew?
