Finally: a (little) blanket!

I did it! Finally I finished a blanket!!! It’s a little one, that’s true, but large enough. For now I’m done with projects like this. Takes forever. After making this poncho I only felt resistance and swore to myself never to begin another project involving more than twelve grannies, but when a good friend asked me to make her soon to be born son a little blanket, I couldn’t say no, of course. But I’m sooo glad it’s finished now.






Awaiting some black fabric for the backside, I already cut the front side panels for a matching play mat (like this one, but with the colors of English liquorice allsorts). At the request of one of my readers I will write a tutorial for the play mat after it’s finished, so if you’re interested than visit my blog now and then (or become a follower J).

Yesterday I went to the market and found flowers in my favorite flower color again: orange!

    1. Thank you, Michelle! I learned to crochet from my mother when I was a child. Maybe it's easier to learn crochet when you're young, I don't know, but keep practicing and eventually you can make anything you like! Liz

    1. Hi Ann,
      The blanket is about 24x31 inches, but I don't know if that's a regular size.

  6. I envy your ability to crochet. No one taught me correctly as a child but I am an OCD knitter when arthritis is not acting up and I love to quilt. Your little crocheted piece is precious. I always love seeing what others are making. genie

  11. Your enthusiasm came over the cyber highway, and now I know why I knitted my baby blanket. Just a small one for a premature baby, 15 inch square. Simple stocking and garter stitch. Now I am knitting a huge one for when the baby goes home. I donate it to the ICU.
