This blanket was made for a friend of mine. She was expecting a boy (obviously)! I made it with Bernat Baby Coordinates. I absolutely LOVE this yarn! It is soooo soft to work with. And after you wash it, it is even softer. I originally bought the blue, green and white for this blanket, then I ended up buying one each of pink, orange, yellow and purple. I didn't care that I didn't have a pattern.
I ended up making another blanket, about double the size of the one above. I used all the colors to make a rainbow effect. I gave it to the daughter of one of my co-workers. She said her daughter won't sleep without it now.
I managed to finally get some photos to show a couple small projects I did. I was on a coaster kick for awhile and made a few for some friends. I had done each of them in different colors depending on who wanted what colors. I also felt that these colors reflected the people I made them for. Like this one I made for a girl I worked with. She is very girly and also has four girls! I also tried to do an edging different for each coaster. I still have many patterns I want to try. I would much rather make my coasters than buy them.
So, this is not my first blog. I had a couple of others that I decided to combine. Most of these first posts will be backdated. Only because I brought what I have done over to this blog. Here goes.....
I have been crocheting since my daughter was about 5 (OMG she will be 13 soon!!!!). Right about the time I decided I didn't want to lead the Girl Scout troop she was in at the time. I had bought some yarn for a project we were doing and had a lot left over. I saved it for awhile, then decided that I wanted to learn to do something with it. Since then I have made I don't know how many hats, afghans and baby blankets. I am still having fun and find it is really cool to learn new stitches and techniques when I start a new pattern/design. As I continue this journal, I hope to add my finished projects. And hopefully everyone can enjoy them!
For all my crocheted items! I have a few original patterns, but mostly other wonderful crafters ideas that I have completed!
