The squares are off as well as a couple of cradle sets which I forgot to take a picture of. oops.

Here's my latest work. It's a preemie cocoon and hat.

The pattern can be found here. I did change the edging to (ch 2, sl st, sk 1) to make a bit of a decorative edge. It's not fancy but just a bit of something extra.  I used a G hook.

My plan now is to make a few hats. A few years ago I made many little preemie hats. I'm going to look back at those patterns and see what I did then. I have much of this pink yarn - I think it may have been Bernat baby yarn.

Happy crocheting!

I've been busy making 50 6" squares while once again waiting for yarn.

Some of the yarn used was Red Heart Super Saver Medium Thyme, RHSS Gold, Vanna's Choice Charcoal Grey, VC Dusty Green. I'm not sure what that other one is. I think it's a VC but not positive.

A friend of ours has started a new charity effort in her locale (Houma, LA). The charity is called Heartstrings of Houma. It's brand new so they're just feeling their way but if you're interested, visit the FB page and let Tiffany and Kaci know you'd like to help. They accept a variety of fiber items from preemie hats to afghans as well as plarn blankets for the homeless. All of the recipients will be in the Houma area. 

Happy crocheting!
