    Baby Afghan CAL?

    I have 1 baby shower coming up in a couple months and my cousins 2nd child is due in a couple months so I have to make a couple Baby Afghans. I was wondering if anyone wanted to join me. The first one I am doing is from the book Great Big Crochet Afghan Book and the pattern is called Ruffles for Baby. But you can do any pattern you want or just wing it. Anyone in? Here is a list of everyone and the blankets they are making if I forgot anyone please pm me and let me know.

    Baby Afghan CAL?

    I'm going to make her two blankets. One lumberjack for in the winter because it's so thick. and the granny ghan for in the summer. I always try to make the infant blankets with holes in them because both my son and nephews liked to pull blankets over thier heads when they were babies, and it makes me feel better that if they do that, that they can still breath through the blanket.

    My sister called me last night freaking out cause she wanted to know if I started the blanket yet. She wanted to switch colors. So now it's Pink and Brown.

    Baby Afghan CAL?

    I love those diaper cakes. I used to work in a deli and one of the bakery ladies made them. I had her make one for my cousin when she was pregnant. My son stole my fleece blanket that we had in the living room. It was a huge one and he was only a year old at the time, so I cut it in half and crochet a cute border around it. I figured when one was dirty, I could swap them and he wouldn't know the difference.

    Baby Afghan CAL?

    I'm going to bring this back around. seems like I have another baby shower to attend. My sister is having her first baby so I need to think of a pattern. I'm stuck between three patterns. Either the lumberjack, giant granny, or a ripple. I'm using Pink and Black. So, anyone wanna do this with me?

    Van Gogh's Closet

    It's called Woodland Heather this is the first time I saw it at wal-mart but then again I usually use red heart I only used caron ss this time because the shinyness (I know I can't spell lol:think) makes it blend better to me at least I think so.

    Van Gogh's Closet

    Hey everyone I made a blanket in this CAL before and that one led to this one so I am jumping back in and here are my colors The aunt of my friend who I made a baby blanket for seen it and asked if I could make her one for her couch in green so here I am again lol oh well it's a good thing I love to crochet.
  13. I have almost one panel of my steelers lumberjack ghan done. It's going to be over 6 1/2 feet long! which is good I guess cause my mom has a king size water bed and my step father is a little over 6 ft tall! wish me luck on this it's taking longer than I expected.
  14. i sorta do that, i'll work on one project till i'm bored with it or i run out of yarn and i'll move on to the next project. I am so close to being done with it that i keep saying a little more and i'll switch but it never happens so with this one i am going to finish it before i move on to the next one lol:hook :hook :hook
  15. I started my steelers lumberjack ghan a week ago then remembered i still had half of an afghan to make one of my sisters for x mas so i must make myself finish that before i make my lumberjack ghan lol (must concentrate).

    Hi from the 'burgh!

    which "burgh" are you talking about Pittsburgh? because i live about 45-60 min north of there in Beaver PA
  17. Just an idea, but i heard that instead of a normal dinner plate use a smaller plate then the portions will not seem so small. I seen it on a health channel. He did a survey thing. He gave people a big plate and asked them to surve them selves then he did the same thing with a smaller plate. and the smaller plate had less food but looked almost the same. I hope this can help.
  18. I just started a Steelers Lumberjack Ghan for my mom for christmas i'll post pics when i'm finished
  19. Hi I live in Beaver, PA. About an hour north of Pittsburgh and about 20-30 mins north of the Airport. I have also lived in Hopewell, PA; Darlington,PA; Enon Valley, PA; and Richmond, VA. I moved back up to PA from VA when I got married and pregnant to be closer to my family. I am 22 and a stay at home mom of a 1 year old. So I am mighty bored during the day. I would love to get together with anyone and talk or crochet or hangout. If anyone has kids close to my son's age that would be great. There is a park right down the road from me. All my friends currently aren't married and don't have kids so they have a life outside of home, but I wouldn't change my life for the world. Well sorry talked to long for some, but if anyone is close let me know. I know I'm supposed to post this in the seeking crocheters section, but I wanted more people to see it, if that is ok.

    hi from Pittsburgh, PA

    Iknow sortof how you feel, my son had problems with his formula. the day after we brought him home he cried all the time and wanted to eat every hour. He was eating 3oz everyhour at 4 days old! Here he couldn't digest the similac and his belly was getting cramps so like most adults do he wanted more food to sooth his belly which was making it worse. we fixed that problem but as a new mother I wasn't sure what to do with him when my husband left for work and the only way I could get him to go sleep for 2 weeks was to put him in a bouncy and rock it with my foot. So i can sympilize with you and you should know that you are not alone. My son is now 14 months old and is a pure joy to be with.
