A friend of mine recently had an adorable baby girl. She requested no gifts at her restaurant baby shower because this was her third baby and second girl, but come on - even third children need a few new things, right? As a 6th child, I understand how annoying hand-me-downs can get (esp when they're from one's brothers), so along with a little outfit (bought, not made - I'm not that good yet) I crocheted a toy ice cream cone. It's got little jingle bells in there for extra fun.
I used the pattern from this book but added the picot stitch around the bottom of the ice cream so it looked more like a scoop.
Welcome to the world, Lucy! You've got a rad family who will take you for real 'scream when you're old enough!
