Another Baby Blanket Finished With Help From Oz

A Finish!, Crafting, Crochet, Donation Crafting, Items For Pine Ridge June 20, 2017

You might notice a new model in a lot of the pictures of projects coming up. For a long time Patch (the one-eyed, flame point kitty in some of the pictures on the blog) was the predominant kitty model around here. He still models with a lot of projects as he loves fabric of any type and it is hard to take a picture of a quilt or other project without him being in it. But recently Callie Kitten and Ozzie have been giving him a run for his money. There’s a lot of competition for kitty modeling gigs these days.  In any case, this is Ozzie. He’s “helping” me add the fringe to this blanket.

Another Crochet Baby Blanket Finish

A Finish!, Crafting, Crochet, Donation Crafting March 27, 2017

It’s been a challenge (and I’ll bet you can guess why) but I did finally get the fringes added to the Sweet’n Sunny crocheted baby blanket.

I enjoy making these simple, single crochet, one color, variegated yarn blankets. I think they turn out pretty. They are easy because there’s no counting involved – which is good because I’m not good at counting when I’m fully focused, let alone while I’m watching my favorite episode of NCIS, Big Bang, or Elementary. I’ve made several of these single crochet, variegated yarn blankets since I first learned to crochet.

Pink Blanket For Pine Ridge Finished!

A Finish!, Crafting, Donation Crafting, Everything, Items For Pine Ridge July 23, 2016

Early in 2016 I committed to sending 200 items to Pine Ridge. It was that commitment which initially inspired me to learn to crochet. I started with cotton dishcloths and then went to winter scarves and then to hats. After about 30 hats I got a bit bored with hats and needed a bit of a break so I decided to make a baby blanket. The first blanket I made using Lion Brand’s Lemon Swirl Big Scoop Ice Cream Yarn. This one is made using Lion Brand’s Cotton Candy Big Scoop Ice Cream Yarn.

A Baby Boy Blanket For Pine Ridge

A Finish!, Crafting, Donation Crafting, Everything, Items For Pine Ridge July 4, 2016

I got a bit bored making hats so decided to take a break and do something else for a while. I found some gorgeous blue, yellow, white, and aqua baby yarn and decided it would make a beautiful baby blanket. I decided it was time to learn a new crochet stitch…having only known single crochet up to that point. So I watched some YouTube videos and learned how to do the half double stitch. This baby blanket/afghan is done totally in half double crochet. There is no pattern…just half double crochet and variegated yarn.
