"It's Raining Snowmen! Hallelujah"

Aren't they adorable. I thought I would add a smile to these two! I am so hooked on making these little fellas it isn't funny! I have been naming these as I knit them. Meet "Whitey" and "Slim"! So, do you like the smiles on them, or are they better without??? I cannot decide!

OK...as promised...some more granny goodness to show you of Summer's Binky!! I love...love...love this little blanket!!! I hope this little baby grows up with this Binky and will carry it with her...wrap her dollies up in it...and sleep at night with it!
I am not normally a fan of pastels, but I like this one...but you know I can't stick to the "baby" colors!
so, these pretty shades of pink and blue were begging me to "pump up the volume"!
and when I added that bright pink and that pinkish red....
sounds kinds silly, but I felt that satisfaction I get when the colors just come to life!!! My brain gets happy!
Oh My!!! I couldn't put down my crochet hook, or stop changing colors after each row!
Just one more picture of the border. Rows of pink in half-double crochet. I think it framed it perfectly!

This little blankie was a complete stash buster, which makes it even sweeter! I think the turquoise green and the bright yellow and purple just make it. I hope this blankie makes both baby and mommy all warm and snuggly inside!

Now, I am on my next venture...and it is starting off quite nicely! A poncho...full of color and texture. And today is going to be sunny and warm today, so some picture taking will be happening!!

I like your little snowmen with smiles better. Don't know why, but they seem happy and make me feel happy looking at them!
Gorgeous blanket, by the way!

Love the pink and red.
And now you've inspired me to try making snowmen - I have extra white leftover from dishcloths - think I'm going to enlist help of a kid for this one, too.
