Teaching crochet

I had the opportunity to teach an 8 week crochet class to a group of girls at our homeschool co-op this semester. We made bookmarks, headbands, purses, hats, and they each made a blanket to donate to the NICU.

I was so proud of all the hard work that they accomplished and it was such a blessing to teach them. I'll be teaching another crochet class in the fall!

Grannies for Babies

I've got two new preemie blankets to show you. It's so much fun to see the blankets adding up. They're so pretty stacked on top of one another.
For this blanket I used two different square patterns.

The border was fun because I tried an 'x' stitch that I had never done before.

A cute little knotted cord adds a bit of fun to the hat.

I think the large granny square blanket works up the fastest, but the last few rows always seem like they last forever.

I've been wanted to try a bonnet pattern, and this one was really easy.
