Crochet Update

I've been enjoying my foray into the crochet world. My first project was really just for practice. I made two "blankets" for my daughter's dolls. Of course they are way out of proportion. I took a baby blanket pattern and just used one skein of yarn for each. Not nearly enough to finish the whole blanket but enough to get me some practice.

The pink one I did first for my oldest daughter and it's hard to tell in the picture but I was doing the double crochet stitch wrong for most of the blanket and then I corrected the problem. So there are two different patterns on the blanket.

The purple one I did for my younger daughter and it turned out rather well.

Now I am working on a poncho for my oldest daughter. I am looking forward to how it turns out.

Very pretty work!! It's so exciting to learn a new craft! I taught myself knitting with a bit of help from my grandma a few years ago...some days it saves my sanity!
