...from the handiwork journal


The baby blanket is finally finished.  I used the diamond pattern that I used for two other previous blankets.  I edged it in a row of white and pink to give it a different look.

I crocheted a newborn baby beanie to go with it.  Just for fun!
I hope the gift recipient and my cousin (buying it) likes it.



...I found the pattern that goes to this blanket, and started back on it. No one wants to crochet a large blanket when it's warm out, so I'm taking advantage of cooler weather.

I'll be back to post about our nasty weather and my cleaning spree....the cleaning that keeps on keeping on....

Your handwork is beautiful, Kristina! (Feels good to have that baby blanket done, doesn't it?)

Your crocheted blankets are beautiful! I love them both! The hat is precious too. My Aunt used to crochet those chevron blankets all time. Every time I see one i think of her. I should make one in her memory and call it my Aunt Bernice blanket. Good job...you do beautiful work.

The baby blanket and beanie are gorgeous. Our Grandmother made ripple blankets like the second one below. It's a great way to use up random odds and ends of yarn too.
Prayers everyone's having a great weekend, and a safe one too.
God bless.
