    Blankets - I'm addicted to blankets
  • Crocheting since...
    Since I was a child. I used to watch my mother and then run to my room to practice in private
  1. My 12 yr old was looking at my FB pages concerning crochet and was appalled to see a bunch of women downgrading the circular knitting machines as being "useless" (we have the Addi kitting express and several other less expensive machines). She decided to prove those people wrong. Attached please see a blanket made with 10 tubes which are 83 rounds in length on the addi. I slip stitched the ends of the tubes, single crocheted down each tube and the joined the tubes with a slip stitch. The enitre blanket has 1 single crochet around it, a row of double crochet, then about 10 rows of alternati
  2. Love It.....LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT......
  3. Yes, its not made with baby yarn....Sweet Roll is a worsted weight.
  4. Premier Yarns Sweet Roll in "Frosty Swirl" using 4 skeins with a row or two in-between each skein of Red Heart With Love "Blue Hawaii"....then used the Blue Hawaii as the border. The pattern is the "Blanket Stitch" by Robin Beers....super easy pattern (free you can look it up on Ravelry)....makes a tight blanket and depending on your tension - very few holes for little fingers to get caught in....I kind of mindlessly crochet this particular pattern while binge watching TV series (Stranger Things was this blanket with my kids)....this was fun to do.
  5. Its 2 rounds of single crochet, then 1 round of double crochet, then 5 rounds of alternating front post double crochet and back post double crochet, then 2 rounds of single crochet, and finally 1 round of the crab stitch (reverse single crochet)
  6. Here is the border: Its 2 rounds of single crochet, then 1 round of double crochet, then 5 rounds of alternating front post double crochet and back post double crochet, then 2 rounds of single crochet, and finally 1 round of the crab stitch (reverse single crochet) And the body of the blanket was from a youtube video:
  7. Decided to use the Bernat Pop that I bought for a baby blanket - non traditional colors......reminded me of my California Sunsets I grew up with. Yarn is Bernat Pop (bought at walmart), pattern is the Marshmallow Stitch....see youtube video by girlybunches.....and the border is my own design. Hope ya'll enjoy it, was fun to make.
  8. It is a coral....I've amended the post and shown the actual yellow....
  9. Ah no folks the color of the blanket is called Sugar Coral. I was saying that I "also" got color that is called "My Sunshine" which looks like a very weak pale goldy kinda yellow....will post when available.
  10. Well folks, I've been blogging about buying yarn at the Dollar Tree for $1 a skein. By happenstance, I found some Caron Simply Baby (very similar to Caron Simply Soft) in Baby Blue (85 skeins), Sugar Coral (49 skeins - see attached photo of finished blanket using 10 skeins) and My Sunshine (my daughter took one look at this color and said it looks like Urine - its a very strange looking yellow.) I've also happened upon some Bernat Roving in Bark which is a 80% acrylic and 20% wool blend. I have yet to work with the Roving yarn, but its a delight working with the Caron Simply Baby - which I
  11. As always Ren, love your stuff. Beautifully done!!!!
