Santa is done

I finished the snowman's friend, the Amigurumi Santa, today and gave it already to my friend as a christmas present. Due to his small size he'll probably find a spot on the christmas tree as an ornament. I made him with sock yarn, that's why he turned out so small. I'm not so sure I'm in enough of a christmas mood anymore to make the matching Reindeer this year, but there is always another christmas and this time I'll try to start earlier (cough, cough, yeah right).

Anyway, I had a request for another boys baby blanket and since I like variety and have the freedom of choice I decided to not go with a row or ripple design this time. I found a Tumbling Blocks pattern from Coats and Clark that I liked very much. The bad thing is, there are lots of loose ends to weave in, but I'm keeping up with them right as I finish the block. The good thing is, that I can make this blanket as big as I want it. The baby is already 3 months old and will probably be another one older, by the time he gets it.

The Santa is real cute, with his big belly! How do you find all those patterns? Why do cute designs always have to be with a ton of ends to weave in? The Baby Blanket will be gorgeous! :o)

I love those tumbling blocks! An optical illusion I can see.

Stop it! Everytime you flash your beautiful crochet work, it makes me feel like I need to pick up a hook.
