So I have been working on a baby blanket for Scott to give a co-worker who is having a baby boy. Here is the pattern I used its FREE https://www.thestitchinmommy.com/2013/12/shell-stitch-baby-blanket-free-pattern.html however I used Lion Brand Pound of Love 2 x balls.
I increased the size of the blanket by doing 150 + 1 CH and 102 rows plus the trim. I could have done approximately 8-10 more rows to use up all the yarn (which I wish I had). It took about 20 min per row so about 34 hours plus the trim and measured 50″ x 58″……not bad for doing in front of the TV.
I hope the new parents like it.
A friend of mine became a grandmother ON MY BIRTHDAY so of course I had to make the little guy a gift. I made him this blanket, didn’t take too long to make but it was a great project to keep me busy at night while I watch TV.
I found the free pattern on Mikey’s web site called Crochet Crowd http://thecrochetcrowd.com/crochet-happy-baby-blanket-pattern-tutorial/
It took me about 33 hours of crocheting within a week to make 63 rows but only did one row of edging, I would have preferred to do 59 rows and make 3 rows around the edging.
The ball of yarn was 1263 yards and this is all I had left…not bad.
Aiden turns 3 today and I made him his own Batman cape. Apparently he loves it so much he won’t take it off to visit with family, which of course makes me SOOOOOOO happy.
Here is where I got the pattern from:
So this is the fourth weekend in a row where Scott has left me alone. It lonely but I spent the day making crafts……………I know what else is new lol.
Today I finished a new wreath made of two different crochet flowers with bit of left over yarn and a scrapbooking layout of when I got to meet Wendel Clark. No I’m not a hockey fan but Scott and my brother are and I got his booked signed for a Christmas gift last year.
I might be back this weekend but if not have a great time.
I made a prayer shawl for my cousin Theresa. its a free pattern I found at Crochet Crowd http://thecrochetcrowd.com/crochet-caron-cakes-prayer-shawl-tutorial/
I increased the size of the shawl so both her and her daughter could be wrapped up together but still only used 2 balls of Caron Cakes Yarn.
For my Mother’s Day I made my mom this crochet jacket using Lions Homespun yarn colours 2x Shaker and 2x Wild Fire
