Crocheted Blanket

 I turned my computer on today for the first time in a couple of days.  I've been busy doing errands, working in the yard, defrosting the garage freezer.....those things that aren't a lot of fun but need to be done. 

In the evenings I've been crocheting on this child sized blanket.  I love working with variegated yarn and find crochet relaxing.  The pattern is just one big granny square only this time I didn't put a chain in between the clusters and only added one chain on the corners.  It makes the holes smaller and the blanket still comes out square.   



I put a solid color border around the edge and then finished it off with the Ole Ole border found on Sucrette's blog
 

I've been sorting through my stash and collecting fabrics to start a new quilt soon so stay tuned.

I hope you are finding some time to stitch!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi LuAnn,
what a nice blanket for Daniel. It must be wonderful to have a grandma like you.
Have a nice weekend and take care

I do love quilts (a lot) but I'm a firm believer that babies need a crocheted blanket! Yours is beautiful!

Such a pretty afghan! I've tried everything, but I can't make a large granny square turn out square, so I've given up. I love crocheting as much as sewing.

Hey, LuAnn. Love the afghan -- so cozy! Are you doing Lion Brands summer crochet along? I'm tempted.

Gorgeous afghan, LuAnn! Love the color. Didn't know you could eliminate the ch1 and still have it lay flat. Thanks for the tidbit.
Like Pat, I'm curious, too: are you joining the Shrug CAL at Lyon Brand? I've d/l the patt, read it and am very tempted. It would be more fun if you and Pat did it too.

Very pretty! I really need to pull down some yarn and start to crochet or knit again. It has been quite a few months.
