I'm always amazed at how quickly the first few weeks of the year escape me! This year is no exception!
I said in my last post that I was planning to make another blanket exactly like the one I'd just done because I loved it so much and wanted to try a different color yarn for the joining of the squares. I have completed that and will share it below. I think I'm over the making of granny squares for a bit as that's just about all I've done for the past month! (And THAT is where January went to!)
My last blanket was joined with the cocoa color yarn that I used in the last round of each granny square. This one is joined with antique white.
The joining color is the same as the border. While I did a bobble border on the last blanket, I changed it up and did a little picot type border here with one row of dc around and then a row of ch3 in one st, sl st in the next, ch3 in the same st as the prior sl st and sl st in the next, etc.
Here's a close up of that joining stitch...the link for how to do it is in my previous post.
And a view hanging over the back of the couch:
An H sized hook and various colors of I Love This Yarn were used in its creation.
I also whipped up a pair of booties earlier in the week. These are for a darling friend who is expecting her first child this year.
I've been working on another blanket...it's the one that lulls me to sleep at night. I keep it at my bedside and sit and crochet until my eyes cross. Like some slippers I made a while back, it is this wonderful neutral shade, but looks quite dull in a photograph! I believe I said photographing this color was like trying to make oatmeal look appealing! But, can I tell you...this is the softest, most cuddly little blankie. The bobble stitch just makes for a wonderful little soft, nubby cuddle up! I can't decide if I should put an edging on it...and if so...WHICH edging. Any thoughts from my kind readers?
Take a look and tell me your thoughts:
We have glorious sunshine here after an early morning rain. I need to go throw a ball for my Dudley...the boy LOVES his ball game!
