May 1st brought news that our newest nephew had been born. Baby Dimitri weighed in at over nine pounds! I wanted to make him something special and I'd wanted to try my hand at making a Lovey but I just wasn't sure what to do, so I sat down and started to crochet. I'm not much for freestyle crochet because I feel I need a general pattern to follow but this just flowed. I still wanted to make more so I made him a matching hat. Yarns used were Vanna's Choice Barley and Grey Marble as well as I Love This Yarn (yes I really do) in Dark Country Blue and Grey Mist.
