Monday Makings… Pattern Review and A Crochet For Cancer CAL!!!

Wow,,, It was a busy week… I crocheted my little heart out to finish up two baby shower gifts for my best friends first grandchild!!  They love Retro and VW Bus’… I really wanted to show you all my progress pictures several days ago, But the shower was Saturday… and I didn’t want her seeing the gifts!!  I did post the picture previews to Instagram and Facebook… But now I want to share a little about the patterns with you!!

The first gift was a beautiful Four Color Spiral Blanket by Smooth Fox…  It was really fun to make… It is for someone who has slightly advanced skills… But only because of the color changes…   Once I got my rhythm down… This afghan was a breeze!!  I used Caron Simply Soft for a great Baby Blanket result!!  What do you think?? Do you love it?? Click Here for the Free Pattern

Next on the Baby Shower Gift List… A VW Pillow… This was definitely a favorite!!!  This pattern is by Deborah Bagley and Dana Bincer at Yarnovations… It was also slightly advanced, but has great instructions…  They have lots of great Free Patterns too… So for your Free VW Bus Crochet Pillow Pattern,,, Click Here!
