Baby Boy Gifts

There are two couples in our church expecting baby boys anytime now. For one couple, this is their first baby. For the other couple, this is their second boy. So needless to say, I had fun making "baby things" from yarn for gifts. The first couple had a shower a few weeks back, and I gave them this crocheted blanket (1-2-3 stitch) and a matching knitted hat.

For the second couple, they are having a "box shower" for them at church tomorrow. This means there's a big box in the entryway, and people can leave their gifts in the box. Then the couple will take the gifts home, without having an actual shower "get-together." (They live a ways away.) So for them, I'm giving a crocheted blanket (alternate rows of SC and DC, bordered by SC), and a couple of crocheted hats in "boy colors."

Hadn't worked with "lace" yarn before, until recently. You knit the edge of it, and it makes a ruffly scarf. Fun!
