busy making beanies

Been a busy bee crocheting and knitting away around here. I wanted to make some things for Raenah and like everything else to do with her, I got carried away. Why have one cute accessory when you can have a dozen?! She’s like the doll I never had and it’s really quite pitiful how much I enjoy dolling her up.
I really like the book Baby Beanies by A. Keeys which has some wonderful knit patterns and well written tutorials.
For everything crochet, I use Teresa’s blog and you-tube videos. She’s very detailed and makes learning crochet simple.
I’ve also recently joined Ravelry which is an online community of people with tons of free patterns and ideas, and has been a God-send in helping me develop my fiber-crafting skills. I’ve also been browsing Etsy a lot lately. I love ‘hand-made’ and some of the artisans on Etsy are truly amazing and inspirational. I want to learn how to embroider next so if anyone has any online resources for me to check out, let me know.

Jane – I agree, Naomi needs one :) Vick – can’t send you the baby, just a beanie, should I make a newborn one or one for Lucy?Crystal -I’ll make you a baby beanie in a neutral color for a guy or girl if you like?
Anthony -can you make three paper planes (one for each of my boys?) or would that be too much of an ordeal?
