One of the best things that babies bring with them (besides the snuggles, the wonder and the joy) are the crochet gifts! I love making gifts for tiny little ones, and so do many of my crafty friends as well. We received some beautiful handmade goods in the first few weeks of Clara’s life, and I thought I’d share some of them here. Unfortunately, I don’t have patterns for any of them, but they are definitely worth ogling!
First is this soft and fluffy crochet blanket from a family friend. She calls it a “LoveGhan”, and she’s made quite a few for her recent grandbabies lately, so I was both surprised and honored to have received one as well! I’ve wrapped Clara up in it and snuggled her up, and it will make a great floor blanket for her too, once she starts picking her head up some and rolling around.
The next “crochet gift” is actually a misnomer, since it’s actually knit, but it was made by Clara’s grandmother herself, so I’m including it as well. The colors incidentally coordinate perfectly with the other crochet blanket above, with pinks and greens, but this one includes some neon pink for a little bit of personality. It’s a gorgeous blanket, and was definitely made in an act of love.
With all the crochet I do, it’s nice to have a knitted blanket. I think I’m going to move knitting up on the list of things I want to become better at. Maybe as a New Year’s resolution…
And finally, this assortment of crochet gifts for baby is adorable. The headbands are crocheted over some type of elastic, and the hat is simple but sweet.
And what is a post about baby crochet gifts without a gratuitous picture of the sweetest baby in the world?
Isn’t she beautiful? I’m so madly in love with her.
Have a wonderful Monday!
