I actually have had a chance to sit and crochet! The motivator was a birthday party for a sweet little one-year old :-). I decided to make the bolero in Sue Whiting's Easy to Crochet Cute Clothes For Kids. Amazon's got the book at a great price, please see my affiliated link below.
Here's the finished product!
There are some really nice projects in her book, and, after reading a few times, the instructions made sense :-).
I've got another baby party coming up, so let's see what else I come up with!
