MALIKI & HER BLANKET:) - Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn

Recommended Posts

:wreath HAPPY NEW YEAR to EVERYONE! :wreath

Here I got few pictures, my daughter just sent them to me.  Here is a Maliki (one of her cats) on a blanket/pad that I made for her before Christmas. I made two of them, I am waiting for another picture. That blanket is made out of Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn - very soft & thick:). My daughter got 2 cats & one little dog. Each of them got a very weird name! LOL. Like Pandora, I call her Pandy. Who on earth names a cat Pandora? :think. Maliki is not the whole name either, I just call her that.

Pandy & dog was a sleep so Maliki got first that blue blanket :). Pandy might take that away from her, Pandy is a Boss! LOL. It is 3 of them, I need to start making a third blanket:)

That blanket is 25"x23"

My daughter could not even take those pictures with right side up. I guess that would be way too much to expect from her LOL. That blue edging shows a lot better/nicer on right side.

Happy crocheting!  :2snowman :wbrr

Happy New Year, Krys!

Maliki looks very comfy on her new blankie! Adorable! :)

I used the same yarn, including color, to make a baby blanket a year ago. My first thought was, "how did Maliki get Jude's blankie?" Lol

Thank You Sharon:)

I do remember you made that blanket for your grandson, I think before he was born.  At the same time I was making two blankets out of that yarn (different color) for two of my friends grandkids.

My daughter just called me with her "great idea's".. LOL. There is a pet shelter close to her condo. She said it would be nice if I would make a lot of those blankets for those animals ( same yarn), they would love them!.  And there is an old lady with two little dogs living in the same condo-building. Her condo is on the first floor and she took out all the carpets from her floors & got a tiles everywhere. My daughter says: those dogs could use that kind a thick & fuzzy blankets too!.

I told her I will think about that. But for sure I would need couple extra pairs of hands! LOL

Besides that she want me to crochet a Igloo for her little dog. That dog is always cold, her fur is so short. She looks almost naked :( .

PS: Long time ago I did seen a picture somewhere of a crochet Igloo, I will try to look for that. If not, I will design my own Igloo LOL.

Krys,

    Its so bright and soft looking. I can see kitty likes it. About your daughter's idea, you said you hate to crochet the same things over and over. Can you make these blankets over and over? I know how you feel about that. Sometimes I start a pattern and its fun and I think I could make this forever! But later I am so sick of it haha.

 Yes, you remember well:). I do not like to crochet same thing over again. But if something is simple and dos not take much time I probably would not mine that much. Specially since those pet blankets can be crochet in different color and different shapes for a change. I do not even know how many of them my daughter would expect me to make for that pet-shelter?. That is a big shelter, they have a lot of animals there. I hope she is not thinking about couple/few dozens for me to make :eek. Because that is not going to happen. I do donate money to that shelter about twice a year. Each time I am getting cash for points (they give me points for my purchases) from my credit card I am writing a check to that shelter for all that amount. I am considering that is a "free money" I am getting. So, I might as well help those poor animals with that..

Couple months ago I donated to that shelter a lot ( big bag) of brand new beautiful pet-toys. Most of those toys are from friends for Cesar (my little dog). And most of those toys are way to big for him to play with. And sometimes when I buy him toys he dos not like some of them. They do have their "own taste" LOL. They do know what they like and what they don't!

Right now I am thinking about that Igloo for my daughter dog. I did try couple swatches out of that baby blanket yarn. I did find out that I will need to use two strands of that yarn and crochet very tight for that thing to have any chance to be able to stay up and not collapsing. That will not be a fast or easy on hands project to make:(.

Yesterday I got some pictures of that second blanket I made. That one is round. I will post that.

How is that winter working for you in WI?. Probably not very well. :wbrr:mdust

Haha..No...it is not working out very well. Dh had to call in to work today and spend the day thawing things out and fixing broken sewage. 

I will like to see the igloo!! That sounds really cool. 

Sounds like you have a busy winter ahead of you. :)
