Hi there! Do you like my new blog header? I'd been wanting to change it for a long time, but just didn't know how to do it. So last night, I downloaded "Smilebox" and created a collage. Hubby helped me pop it on here - and I LOVE IT!!
Now...... onto the TA-DA!!
I began this ripple baby blanket back in January. After a week's work, this was how much I had completed:
I had hoped, at the time, to have it done by Valentine's Day - and you know what? Success! I crocheted the last row of edging a whole week before!
So - what do you think? My daughter loves it. She has already tried to claim it as her own on several occasions. At almost six, she still cherishes the blanket she received as a infant. It's on its last legs (even though my mother has mended and re-mended it several times) and I think she might be on the prowl for its replacement!
I would have loved to have made the blanket a little wider, but I ran out of the pink coloured yarn! It is still plenty big to wrap a baby in, or to drape across the stroller on a chilly day.
My stack of baby blankets and quilts continues to grow. For awhile there, I couldn't keep up with the demand for hand-made baby things at a time when all of my friends were having their children. Now most of us have completed our families and these cozies don't leave the house as often as they used to. Oh well. I just keep making them - I DO enjoy seeing the pile increase in size!!
Thanks for coming by for a visit! I'd love to hear from you! And please, become a FOLLOWER!
