Anniversary Week - Too much cuteness, Day 3

I can hardly handle all the cute on the cover - I about died when I opened it open up and saw all the rest!
You know I love it when Stackpole Books reaches out to me and says "Hey, we've got this awesome new book and are curious if you'd like to take a look."  My answer will always be "YES!!" because every single one is full of awesome projects that inspire me to no end - and this latest one does just that!!

Crochet for Baby All Year by Tammy Hilderbrand is twelve months of cheek pinching cute projects that will have you scrambling for your hook and the closest skein of yarn.  You think the front cover makes you babble with glee, wait until you open it and take a wonder through the pages.

Initially I thought I would do the cheerleader outfit first because I know that my little Miss Rebecca has some serious need of this - in both Alabama and Auburn colors so her parents will always have their girl cheering for their favorite team.  I don't know what they'll do during the Iron Bowl! - but when I started reading the patterns for the other outfits I just couldn't decide!!

Every month has at least one ensemble for a little girl and one ensemble for a little boy - which is awesome!
The newest addition to our family, my great-niece Roxann, needs to have this sweet patriotic frock with matching hat.  Both of her parents are proudly serving in the US Marine Corps, stationed in Japan.  What could be better than having their sweetest little girl all glitz up in the colors of Old Glory?

Ladybugs!!  Ladybugs!!  Seriously, ladybug rompers AND a ladybug hat - I can't stand it!!
Then there is sweet little Miss Abigail who I know needs to have the ladybug romper and hat set.  She will be the cutest kid in Central Park sporting the cutest critter to ever be labeled as a "bug".  The crown of the hat even has a ladybug on it - can you handle all of this cuteness?!?!

I could seriously show you every single outfit in here and tell you exactly who I am going to make it for but instead, my fabulous friends at Stackpole Books have offered to send one of my lucky readers a copy of their own - how fabulous are they!!  All you have to do is -
a Rafflecopter giveaway

This one closes on July 9, 2014 at 11:59pmET.  Open all readers, everywhere on the planet!  I will announce the winner on July 10th because it is one of my favorite crocheter's birthday - my sister-in-law Sandy who is my fabulous Roxann's very proud grandma!!
