A Plethora of Works-in-Progress

First up, two finished projects, made for my soon-to-be-in-this-world niece, called, for now, Snoopy. A Baby Surprise sweater made from Dale Ulla in several shades of pink, and red and cream. I chose the buttons at Brooklyn General Store, where they have a small but very choice selection. I also added the pink single-crochet border to try to correct some of the natural wonkiness of the pattern:

Also completed for Snoopy, a cheerful baby ripple made of Knitpicks Shine Worsted:

In progress, a Giant Granny from remnants of Elizabeth Lavold Silky Wool (looooove those saturated colors, and the yarn works up beautifully on a little size C crochet hook):

And finally, granny squares in Rowan Cotton Glace remnants, very muted oranges, greens, and creams:
