I've taken a stab recently at making baby gifts for a few of my friends.
The first was a blanket for my friend Sarah. I had just learned how to crochet and was really obsessed with granny squares (which I still am). I was determined to see if I could just make one really big granny square into a blanket. Turned out well for a first try at making a baby blanket, but it did take me quite a while to make. I have much admiration to those folks who can bang out more complicated baby blanket patterns quickly.
Little Alfie seems to like it. I know his parents do too!
I also decided to make Alfie and his parents a wee geeky gift as well - a Doctor Who inspired onesie. And, well, once I found out they were going to call him Alfie, I couldn't resist.
Come on, I just had to do it :)
