This week I will share with you a baby blanket I have been working on for the past 10 days. It has been so much fun that I couldn't put it down once I started on it.
As you may recall, I crochet and knit with a group that makes items for charity. We recently received a large donation of yarn and there was two new packages (with 10 skeins each) of this yarn. I took one of the packages and my friend took the other.
As you can see, this is a woven ribbon type yarn. I didn't know how it would knit up but it was great to work with.
I wanted to find a crochet pattern that wouldn't be boring to do and yet not too complicated. I looked online and through my stash of old patterns. I found this pattern tucked away in my pattern stash. I've had it for almost 30 years and thought it would be a fun pattern to crochet.
Here's the finished product. I think it came out cute although someone has already asked me "how will a baby use a round blanket". Well, that's up to the Mom - I just had fun making it!
Before I end this post, I want to share with you my great "find" of the week. I stopped by my local World Market; I love that store with all the goodies they offer from around the world. They had some of their African items on sale and I purchased this basket for 1/2 price for a total of $19.99! I had wanted one for a long time and it will be perfect for my large knitting projects like the afghan I am currently working on.
I would love to hear about what you are working on. Also, feel free to e-mail me if you would like a copy of this pattern. Please come back again and visit Lilly My Cat and stop over at Handmade Harbour for some great crafting ideas and also check out this blog for additional creative gifts.
