April is Baby Month

Babies are so cuddly, soft and sweet. I love babies and really enjoy crochet and knitting for them.  Having 2 sons, 6 grand kids (one of them a great- grandson), great nieces, great nephews, all those friends kids, and their kids and their kids … I feel like I have a good bit of experience with babies. My youngest is 9 months old and it’s so enjoyable making cute little hats and sweaters for him. And let’s not forget the blankets and toys. There are so many wonderful gifts you can make to welcome a new baby.

    I would like to see more boys clothing, like sweaters and hats. Girls things are very cute but I never see enough for the boys.
    There are plenty of blankets, but we need more clothing. Maybe leggings?? Mittens. Mostly in easy crochet.
