Don't you just love having the feeling of love and joy when you finish a project?
This one I can finally say is finished and checked off
my list as done!
What started out to be for my oldest child Lauren
now belongs to my little guy, Garrett. Once finished she thought it was more for a boy so she handed it down to him and I must say...it matches his room even more so than it would in hers.
(now this gives me another excuse to make another blanket.
Details on that coming soon)
I think it matches the theme I have been working on in his room.
I have saved so many little whatknots from when he was born and have added a few little
patchwork pillows, quilts and such to keep him all cozy in his room.
I would show you the whole room but you might faint. It's a total disaster behind me!
My favorite thing so far in his room, other than this new blanket
is the little patchwork pillow to carry his books in.
These are perfect for a day at the library.
He can carry his books he picks out and slide them into the top pocket.
I'll save more details on that in another post all of it's own.
I know I said I would share the blanket details so here they are.
Pattern can be found HERE
I modified the pattern just a little. It says to make in the back loops only but I chose
not to do that. Mine is made in the front loops as normal when making sc.
Red Heart "soft" yarn

making 10 rows total with each color.

Total time to make....
If you know the simple stitches in crochet you will be able to whip this up in no time.
So easy I think I might make one in red white and blue for the
upcoming Fourth of July!
Adding that to my list!!
I do hope you all are enjoying your weekend.
It's a bright and sunny day today and temps
have risen to the sixties....feels sort of like Springtime..
I think I have had enough of the cold!
