I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

As New Year has just started, its good to think about something totally new.

To this point, every baby should be welcomed with warm cheer and great spirits. However, some of them are lucky enough to be also welcomed with a cosy warm welcome baby blanket for their very own. So, why not make the new sprog in your life one of the lucky ones? Indeed, This is probably one of the most fun and memorable projects you can make. Moreover, there is just so much you can do in terms of these blankets to make them more fun and interesting. Therefore you have no reason not to try some of these, even if there’s no baby due in the family any time soon.
