A Blanket for Danny

I finished the baby blanket for the new grandson that is due in July. JC and Courtney are having a boy, Danny Ramero. I crocheted it in the same colors as Kylers, thought that would be kind of cute, both have the same colors, just different patterns.
This shell pattern is from the Lions Brand website. I think it would look good in a thicker yarn using a bigger needle too.

I knitted up these little socks, I don't know what I was thinking, but for some reason I didn't think there was that much pink in the yarn. So I don't think these will work for Danny, maybe I'll get a girl grandbaby someday. I think a little knitted hat would be a cute match with these. I picked up this pattern when I was over in Juneau last, now I'll have to search for a hat pattern.

And What Did I Get In Return?

This is what I received in return for the slippers and purse:

It has so many little pockets for my knitting needles, scissors, and circular needles, plus it's just like I wanted, it is made to hang on the wall. "Luckdragon" on Craftster did such a great job!
As a bonus she put in some Sensations yarn too, I'm not sure what I will make out of it yet, but there is enough for something cute I'm sure.

A Personal Swap

I just finished these for a personal swap on Craftster. I'll be getting a holder to hang on the wall or back of a door for my knitting needles. I seem to keep getting more of them....

Both of these patterns are in Debbie Strollers Happy Hooker Crochet. I modified the slippers though since the pattern was a little hard to figure out.
