« on: December 19, 2009 10:54:19 AM »

So I was in a fiber swap with Oddacity a while back and she sent me the most delish colored roving, pinks and yellows!  I immediatly began hoping that my Belly Friend was a girl as I knew exactly what I would make with it if said Belly Friend was a girl... Well,  We still don't know, as baby is still in belly, but I made this starghan anyway.. I sure hope I get to use it!  It's not big, but I intend it to be a lovey blanky and of course can slowly make it bigger as baby grows, and when I spin up more yarn to match.   

anyway, enough yackin'... pics!



Me "modeling" it over the bump... yes beautiful pregnancy mask I know... Thats what happens folks.  be prepared.. LOL



and a close up of the center which after making a few more of these as pot holders (  which I don't have any pics of...)  I realized a better way of doing it, newb mistake, but eh, whatevs



Anyway I love this pattern.  you can just make it as big or as small as you want!  I think I love crocheting!

That 'Little Starghan' is perfect in my book!  Perfect size, it looks soft, crafted well...and the best thing...it is shades of ORANGE (my FAVORITE COLOR!)!  Very nice.

thanks Miss Barbara!  The yarn I made was made with Blue faced Liecester wool and corridale wool, so it is quite soft, and will be nice and warm Smiley

I love this! And if your belly friend is of the other persuasion, I think it should still be a blanky. it's too cute not to be.
