Krochet Kids

Thought I'd share this short commercial I saw tonight:

It's great to see that these guys are making a life-changing impact using the art of crocheting, and that guys think crocheting is actually cool!

Plus isn't it nice that they're using updated patterns unlike many from sites that I see online?

Wedding Garter + Baby Headband

Earlier this month, a fellow HDHer got married, and I had the delight pleasure of being her Matron of Honor. Her wedding colors were navy with a touch of orange, so I had the perfect idea for her... crochet her a navy and orange garter, which would also be her something blue. It was a quick pattern I just put together and it couldn't have turned out better.

Doesn't the garter look nice on this model?

While I was finishing up on this project at the HDH meeting three days before her wedding, we discussed how this Wedding Garter would also make for a perfect baby headband. I personally think this is a great idea, to be able to reuse your own wedding garter for the next generation. What do you think?
A perfect 2-in-1 project for any bride!

Crocheting in the real world

While at a visit to the Columbia St. Mary's hospital in milwaukee I couldn't help but notice these delightful doilys croched by the mother of an employee for each department. Check out this one in the blue department!
