So, everyone I know seems to be having kids except me and noone I know seems to be able to crochet except me...so I guess I'm in business for a while. Atleast I can destash as I'm making gifts rather than buying into expensive shop bought baby items.

I made this dress:

For my friend Amy who's expecting a little girl on valentines day, I'm making white bloomers and a cardi and some matching green booties to go with it and will post pictures once I'm done, which needs to be before friday because that's when I'm going to her baby shower in Brighton! She doesn't want too much pink and has bought alot of more neutral coloured things for her little girl, so I thought that green was ideal.
I used this pattern: http://sarahsweethearts.blogspot.com/2011/04/little-white-dress.html
I'm using this pattern for bloomers: http://www.lullabiesandlace.com/pdfpatterns/baby_bottom_bloomers_for_babies_v3.pdf

I'm still making this blanket:

For my friend Danyel who had her little girl in November, I ran out of peach on the last point and just got hold of some more and now I can't get hold of another ball of matching pink for the ball I already have because I'll obviously run out so now I've got to get another pink.
I used a pattern that was on ravelry which I think was called rainbow ripple blanket or along those lines, it was a free one.

I also made this dress:

For my friend Tash who had a little girl in September, I ran out of pink and had to improvise with white, I used a pattern from and old "Crochet Today", but I think I prefer the other dress pattern, I think it looks more girly with the shells.

Those are beautiful gifts, you are very kind.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I love that first dress and the blanket. Great Job.

I tried making that dress, but for some reason I can't seem to follow the directions. I got so frustrated with it (because I wanted my daughter to wear one for Christmas) that I gave up. It's not at all like me to do that, but I did. I haven't tried it since.

I think the instructions on the first dress are a bit confusing, which bit did you get to? it's almost worth printing it out and crossing through each pattern chunk as you do it because the writer has written it in a very long winded way, but it's actually very easy. It would be an ideal easter/spring dress too, perhaps give it another go?
