A few years back, I blogged several knitting items I'd made. Some detours in life took me away for awhile but now I'm back and while I don't expect this to be exclusively a knitting blog, I will start with one blanket I made three of over the summer...(yes, THREE)...for one purpose. To keep my sanity. So far it's worked. (I hope!)
It was crocheted from polyester yarn using a double crochet stitch straight through but also I used two separate strands of yarn at the same time (one peach and one white) for the body so the blanket is quite heavy. I mostly like that it's washable as one went to a niece's little baby girl, but another to my daughter for the simple reason that I've been knitting little boy things for her for years now and I thought it was time for her to have something girly for herself. The third still needs the fringe tied on.
