Hooking in Pink

Haha got your attention didnt I.

I thought that was funny. 

I looked over at my husband the other night while I was curled up in my recliner and asked him..." Guess what I am?" He rolls his eyes, takes a deep breath and says " wut?".
My answer, "A lefty hooker". Get it? "Im left handed, crocheting, uhh, nevermind". Needless to say he didnt find it too funny.  He just nodded, " yea ok, whatever".

My niece is having a baby shower on Sunday. It was suppose to have been this past Sunday but was cancelled due to the snow. 

Meanwhile, I was stuck inside the whole weekend and needed to do something with my hands or I was going to eat the refrigerater. So I crocheted a couple baby things to give her at the shower. I already have her gift but this is just some extra purties from Aunt Lisa. I was going to crochet a baby blanket but I waited to long and then Christmas came, then new years. I was too busy to crochet such a project.

So, I crocheted some pink things for the new baby girl coming into the world in March. 
I crocheted a set including a romper with matching shoes and some button booties.

 
Her shower theme is pink and gold so I went with a gold ribbons. Not my favorite choice but I had it on hand and nothing else to use it on. 

 
I used my logo buttons on the button wrap booties. I think these are the cutest little things. Pretty easy to make but being left handed, shoes are hard for me since I have to follow all patterns backwards. Everyone crochets right to left but I crochet left to right. So with things that are left and right, it usually will not turn out correctly. 
Confused yet?

 
These little booties have neither a left or right so they are really easy for me to create. 

 
This was a first. A baby bubble romper. I found the pattern HERE and changed it up a bit. I added ruffles to the arms and puckered the leg holes a bit. Another cutie.

I will be making some pickups for the shower and can't wait to share those with you this weekend so stay tuned.

    1. I hope so. I think the romper turned out a little stiff so I need to use a softer yarn for that next time.

  3. For someone who doesn't understand about how it is done, that is amazing, left or right handed. Now that I have seen your handiwork up close and personal, your work is super good.

    Someone is gonna be tickled, and always remember Aunt Lisa, that is for sure.

    I understand the busy hands thing. when I have a book in the mill, I eat less. LOL

  9. This puts every baby outfit I've ever seen in stores to shame. No weight gain & authentic one of a kind excellence from Aunt Lisa. Win/Win.
