Baby Boom

Babies, babies, BABIES. I can't seem to escape them, and why would I want to. For the last 7 years (post college life) I've gone to wedding after wedding (including my own). So its only natural to leave the wedding phase and move on to the baby phase of adulthood. Me and my hubby aren't  in baby ville yet, were still in newly wed land. BUT everyone else seems to be popping them out, and if not them, its a sister, daughter or in-law. I've decided that it's best for me to start expanding my baby gift skills beyond the blanket and hat. I'm going to learn to make baby booties. Lucky for me my favorite crochet magazine Crochet Today has a special spring baby issue on stands now.
Crochet Today is the crochet Magazine that speaks to me most. The patterns are fun, colorful and fresh. Below are the baby booty High Tops I'm going to make.

So I've the Rainbow Circle baby blanket. YAY ME! So I love it so much, I'm sure I'll use this motif again. It's a great tutorial  from  was so easy to follow. I like the boarder, but I'm not in love with it. I think next time I might just do a white boarder. 
This is a close up off the board I did. I made a very simple single crochet rainbow border using only 6 of the 12 colors I used in the blanket. 
On a non-crochet topic....I found these really cute PEZ dispensers at CVS on sale for 99cents. I'm only keep one for myself and give the other ones to my sister and a friends. It's strange but I love Hello Kitty more at almost 30 than I did at 10. I plan on crocheting a cover for my Sony e-reader with Hello Kitty on it.

    Don't worry I haven't forgot about the Tartis Blanket. I will feature it on WIP Wednesday. It's been a bit neglected since I was wrapped up in working on the circle blanket. I'm not going to be starting any more big projects till it's done. Hope you have a lovely week. 
Love and Stitches,
