Baby Straightjacket

003, originally uploaded by trifarina.
This did not turn out anything like I expected. I bought the yarn, Plymouth bear hugs, packaged like a kit in a ball, simply too gimmicky for me to resist. The pattern and buttons for the baby sweater were cozily tucked inside.

Well, I didn't read the pattern right and went with all garter stitch. I also lost the bear buttons. The finished cloth is heavy; almost too heavy for any garment let alone one for an infant. Oh well.

I'm weaving things.

I don't know what to do with all of them, but I can't stop. These are just dishcloth cotton and you get 5 or so cloths per ball. A little too small for a washcloth or dishcloth, but it's so much fun. (I'm also working on squares for an afghan.)

February is American Heart Month

Did you know that February was American Heart Month?  Well, somebody must have, as they took the opportunity to decorate lots of signs and art at the Texas Heart Institute with some rather festive crocheted hearts, on Valentine's Day no less!  Good thing I happened to be in the neighborhood to snap some pics.
