Claire enjoyed working on the Tiramisu Crochet Baby blanket she will give away this September. She was amazed at how fast she got it done. "It's a great pattern and so easy", she said. She began working on her second one for another baby due this year.

The pattern used by Jan consists of knit 2 together and yarn overs creates lacy a pattern. The large needle she uses also contributes to the lacy effect.
Rita found the original Sock Monkey pattern by Fox River Mills Inc. at the Biltmore Arcade. The kit which costs $10.00 comes with everything needed to assemble one. She will use the sock monkey during the story telling events in which she participates. I had the intention of making a sock monkey following the instructions in a book but did not finish mine. I used a man's sock and the stuffing took a long time. I had better luck designing an amigurumi sock monkey.
