Crochet lamb baby hat and afghan

ImageNovember is such a hectic month, between the holidays and trying to tie up loose ends before the year ends.  And this year is no different!  In addition to the usual hustle and bustle, this month is Shane’s birthday, our anniversary, and two lovely ladies will be having two lovely babies; the first will be Shane’s sister, Clare, and the second will be a friend of mine, Su.  Now, I’m not really good with babies, but I have a decent hand for crocheting, so I decided to whip up my “specialty:” lamb hats!

Speaking of crocheting, here is a little update on the afghan I’ve been working on (which you might have spied in my Día de los Muertos entry):
