For Baby...

Making something for a new baby is one of the sweetest and happiest things to do. My sister is expecting her third baby in February and while I will not be there when the babe is born (my sis lives on the other side of the country) I am sending her this little crochet cutie for the baby.
It's a rattle and the pattern can be found in this book.

I am happy with how it turned out with one exception: because the rattle goes inside the duck only a very small container filled with rice would fit, and once I added the stuffing, the rattle noise became very quiet. I am hoping that because the duck is so cute, the fact that he does not rattle like a champ will be forgiven.
As for yarn choice, I used my trusty old friend Bernat Handicrafter Cotton and kept the colors gender neutral as my sis does not know whether she is having a boy or a girl.

Just imagine a sweet little baby hand grasping the blue ring....

I have not crocheted a toy in a long time so it was great to get back at it. And while I had my pattern book out, my girls were quick to put in their orders....I already have a few projects on the go but when has that ever stopped me from starting something new....
