Cold Weather Encourages Crocheting--Warm Under The Fiber
Favorite Baby Afghan
The afghan is finished, boxed and ready to be shipped. I started booties to match but couldn't make them small enough. The worsted weight yarn is too heavy to make new baby size booties so I dug into my stash and found a perfect pair ready to go. Makes me think that I should get busy between projects and make some booties and hats so I have some ready to go next time. This soft, textured pattern makes the most beautiful blanket. This is the 4th one I have made using this pattern. It uses yarn--1,796 yards with a G hook and single thread worsted weight Red Heart Super Saver in Hushabye. I prefer the worsted weight to baby weight because it makes a larger size blanket and is bulkier. It turned out very nice and will keep the baby nice and warm. I know I was warm under it while working on it. One night my puppy crawled up on it to get under the light so I had to stop work for a bit. What can you do? Puppies are only puppies a short time and I'm enjoying every crazy and cuddly moment. She loves fiber but that's okay cause I wash the item before shipping. Poodles are hypoallergenic but still....a clean blanket is best. Now I'm focused on hats and gloves for another friend. One hat done and a few more to go. Can't send the girls hats without sending the boys hats, too. I mean fair is fair. They'll be ready to ship next week in plenty of time for the first snow. I'm hoping the snow holds off around here until next year...only 3 weeks away. B-r-r-r-r-r!
