Mostly random rambling about yarn, crocheting, knitting, giving back, dogs, and football. And that's just today!

Mother’s Day Blanket

For years I have wanted to make a blanket for my Mom. Nothing ever seemed quite good enough. I finally took the challenge head on and started designing one from the resources I have.
I took squares from Jan Eaton’s 200 Crochet Blocks, a join from an online tutorial and a border for Edie Eckman’s Around the Corner.
The blanket turned out soft, elegant and feminine.

Colors: Beige, Pink, Dusty Blue, Dusty Green, Dusty Purple, Oatmeal, Espresso
books: 200 Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton (order here) and Around The Corner by Edie Eckmans (order here)
