A surplus of baby woobies….

It seems to be that when I get an order for something I then focus on making several of the same thing for stock, but I always seem to run out of certain items just the same. I’m not quite sure how or why this happens, but my latest restocking binge is for baby afghans. I’ve sold 3 in the past few months…all of which I had to make up, so my goal now is to make at least 6 to have on hand. We’ll see how that goes.

I’ve also decided to do a couple of different sizes. My go-to pattern for years was  a crocheted carriage (pram) cover which is approximately 2′ x 4′ and big enough to keep mom and child warm during wee small hour feedings and stay with the child until age 4 or 5 at least. I’ve also added a slightly smaller version for a crib blanket that won’t be bunchy or bulky in the crib and will fit nicely over a car seat. It just felt like I should be giving choices to my customers…

Traditional colors have also been the norm for me of late, although the pink is for girls and blue is for boys was originated in the  1940s or 1950s I believe. I like doing brightly colored afghans for children, but it seems that most people are looking for the pastel standby. Maybe when I’ve hit 6 afghans in sedate colors I’ll make a wild one or two and see how it goes now.
