Crochet part 2

So one of my original pattern inspirations for learning to crochet was this little shamrock. I found it a couple of years ago (before Missy Moo came along).

Anyway, with St. Patty's day coming up, I thought it'd be perfect! I had to learn a new stitch, trc, but it was a cinch!

Here's my first attempt (on a can I covered with yarn):

Here's the 2nd, on a headband for Moo or Maddie, not sure yet:

Baby Gifts: part 1

My sister, Erin's, babyshower is tomorrow, the 27th. We'll be showering her with all things pink, ruffled and adorned with ribbon for the newest addition to the family (due 4/1), Maddieson.
I found some cute onesies on clearance, couldn't pass them up, so I threw them in with my handmade gifts.
Gift one (no picture) is a 8x8 scrapbook. I filled each of the 20 pages with pink, brown and green patterned paper. I also included coordinating embellishments.
Gift two is a hair "pretties" holder. I love it! (Mommy confession: my own daughter's pretties are in a wipe box! Have been since day one...26 months ago! LOL)

I better get on one for Missy Moo!

Hi my name is Chelsea and I'm a knitter. :) LOL I learned how to knit...almost 4 yrs ago and have made a dozen projects in that time. But from time to time I'd come across a crochet pattern that was just too cute! I really wished I knew how to crochet as well. So, while making an elefante for my penpal's new baby, I realized I needed to crochet those big ol' ears. Hopped on youtube and taught myself how to crochet! It is SOOOOO easy! It's so quick too! That was Tuesday night.
Last night I made this:
And tonight, a matching one for dolly:
Aren't they adorable together? :)
