Isn't this just the cutest thing? I learned a lot about crochet making this little guy. First, I learned I was definitely not doing single crochet for the blanket border. I was hooking the yarn in more of a "knitting" way. I'm sure this is actually some real crochet stitch, I just don't know the name for it. The lion is made with the real single crochet stitch. I also learned a loop stitch, which is pretty perfect for a lion's mane, don't you think? My ears don't exactly match, but I think they'll do. I probably couldn't do much better if I tried again. Tomorrow, I'll stitch it to the blanket, which is currently blocking.

And, as promised, here is an updated photo of Olive. I got the chance to knit in the car a little today. This is perfect travel knitting and I'll definitely be bringing it up to Madison this weekend for the baptism.

Oh! And I almost forgot to mention... I started something new!
