Blankets, Blankets, Blankets and more...

Blankets, Blankets, Blankets and more...
So I have several friends that are expecting babies. I decided to make them a baby blanket as a gift.
So for my first blanket, I used the Lacy Clusters pattern from a book I own. I used the TLC Baby yarn that I found at the local thrift shop.

My second baby blanket was made with the corner to corner blanket pattern. I love this pattern. It is easy and works up quickly. I also used a new yarn, for me, from Red Heart called Soft Baby Steps.  I love this yarn.  It is soft and heavy when made. It should keep the baby warm.

 These two blankets are for my two oldest sons.  It is the same pattern for both blankets.
I think the name of the pattern is Ripple Baby Blanket by Bernat.  I made the brown blanket 3+ years ago and started the blue one 2+ years ago and just found the motivation to finish recently.  My motivation is to be a part of the Mandala Madness.  I wanted to get finished with a few projects before Madness started.

 I also finally finished this doily. It is from Annie's Crochet pattern 4- Hour Doilies.  It uses size 3 thread and works up very quickly.  I can usually get the item made quickly, but it takes me forever to finish my items.

This last one is a doily for my second daughter.  She is using it in her room.  I used size 10 thread from Aunt Lydia's and got the pattern from a Magic Crochet Magazine from 1994. The pattern name is Citron.

Happy Crafting from me to you!!!

September through December Finished Projects

More Finished Projects

I have made more stir me up potholders. Some of them were used as Christmas gifts. They seem like great gifts to me.

I made a friend a twirly scarf for Christmas.  It turned out really cute. The yarn I used is I Love This Yarn Neons from Hobby Lobby. I had to increase the dimensions by 2.  It was quite small to begin with. 

 While at Jo-Ann Craft Store one day, I was this lovely chunky yarn. It is Red Heart Grande Metallic.  It is fast to crochet up since it is so large.

 My wonderful friend showed me this pattern called the Hitchhiker Cowl.  It is really pretty, but took me several months to finish. I used Madelinetosh Tosh Sock yarn.  It is really small compared to most yarns I like to use. It turned out very lovely.

Happy New Year!!!
