Pretty things

I have a new obsession, crochet. Mostly blankets and throws 20120308-114450.jpg
They make such nice props for naked baby photos. This photo is from the blog of letter B photography, where I got the idea for my monthly photo of the girls. 20120308-214938.jpg
but crochet dresses, big and little, are pretty fabulous too. 20120308-215046.jpg20120308-215051.jpgMaybe it’s because they always have a vintage feel to them or because they were probably made with a particular person in mind and with a lot of love. I would love to learn how to crochet. My friend tried to teach me a few months ago but I just don’t have that kind time in my life right now. I guess that’s why people are always saying my grandma made this blanket for me. They are the only ones with enough free time to do it. My friend made the girls these adorable little booties

I remember hearing that my grandmothers friend made it for me, that was nice of her friend. I wonder if she worked on it while my grandmother was watching wrestling, her favorite thing to do. Nana, here’s where you come in. We are going to start a family tradition, one where the grandma or Nana in this case crochets a blanket and anything else she wants to for her grand daughters that they can pass to their grand children, sounds fun right?! As an early grandparents day gift to you I got you crochet lessons! I knew you’d love it! Your welcome. Start small, something like this
