A bear blanket ( if it were spread out, the head would be at the top center, and all the corners of the blanket would have bear paws.

A bunny baby blanket

She cant cook, but she can sure crochet.

LS, tell your wife how awesome she is!! That is not an easy task. I got into knitting and it is fun, but, time consuming and if you miss one row, it messes up everything. It's the same with crochet. Does she sell her stuff??

She has been told that she should sell it by friends and family, and has considered it. But, she enjoys it so much , that she doesnt want to turn a hobby in to a job with deadlines, complaining people and all that fun stuff. So for now, its a hobby to make things for us, and baby gifts for others. Our family is rather large, so there is always a baby that needs a gift here. I love hearing her curse when she misses a stitch and has to pull out a whole row, but shhhhhh, dont tell her.
