Reader and commenter Sarah chipped in on the star craft thread, saying that she started crocheting baby rugs when her first set of twins was born. (Think about that for a moment.) I asked her if she would send me some photos, and here they are:

I like crochet best because you can put it down a lot more easily than knitting and it’s much easier to pick up and reattach if a child has tugged on it.
The first is a full sized one I made for my littlest – every so often the kids get jealous that I’m always making them for other babies. It was so boring it almost killed me – especially the sewing of all the tiny squares. I’m more of a one piece person. The stripes are the same yarns that I had bought for other twin but couldn’t face doing that pattern all over again. The pink is my current favourite pattern. I try to find pinks and blues that are slightly different to the traditional. The blue is a nice textural pattern. The yarn is the star in this one – it’s extremely soft and fuzzy.
