She fits!! She fits!!!

With my new passion for crochet and the early arrival of my baby daughter I couldn't resist crocheting her a baby cocoon!
From 2010-04-20

It was a race against time as I only had a limited amount of that wool (and energy!) and she's growing so fast I really wasn't sure she'd fit in it. I'm sooo happy she does fit in!
BTW, the cocoon is a photo prop only - not something to leave baby in.

Eventually I'll use the cocoon to keep her nappy stuff in.

At first, she wasn't too keen:

But she soon snuggled into it and chilled out:

Our baby girl came this morning

She's 3 weeks early but very healthy at 8lb6oz. She was born very fast so much so that we haven't got a name yet!

A completely messed up dishcloth!

This really didn't go according to plan and has even more mistakes in it than my other 'creations'. Some bits are frillier than others....oh's a dishcloth after all.

I can now in into labour

As bizarre as it sounds i've been obsessed with finishing this hat for the baby before i go into labour (any time now). Having finished it, i now feel ready to have this baby. :)

First adult hat

Here's my first crocheted adult hat. It's a very basic one done with extended sc and hdc stitches but i'm hoping i can make it versatile by attaching various embellishments. The photo doesn't really show how lovely the yarn is - it's Sirdar Wow and has a subtle sheen to it.
I followed a really good pattern created by someone on the Crochetville forums: Basic Hat Any Size
