The countdown to the expected arrival of our latest addition is now in the single digits. I have been stressing a bit about labor and delivery, and crocheting has been a great tension reliever for me. As the queen of cheapo, I never pay for a pattern, so all the patterns listed here are available for free on the internet.
I was comforted greatly when I found this verse in Isaiah 41:13, "For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee." I have quoted that verse a lot in the last few days!
Here is the majority of my recent projects:
Newborn Hat: no pattern
Pink ribbon hat: no pattern
I gave this one to a friend who is battling a second round of cancer and chemotherapy. Another made-up-as-I-went, so no pattern for this one.
This was my inspiration, but I'm too cheap to buy a pattern. I just eye-balled it.
No pattern, but this one was my inspiration.
Queen Anne's Lace scarf pattern (requires free sign-up with Ravelry.com)
For my niece, and again no pattern
For my nephew, and no pattern, but here's something similar!
For my oldest nephew, who is consumed with airplanes and flying right now. No pattern for this one either.
