This is a project I finished months ago, but I never got around to blogging about it because I felt so crappy. (Yes, I took on a project during the worst of my morning sickness. I’m hardcore like that.) The blanket is for a friend of the family. It should have taken a month or less to finish, but due to my “condition,” it took me three and a half months.
(I was really hasty when taking pictures since I’m in a rush to deliver the blanket. I have no idea why I waited until the last minute to photograph it.)
I crocheted this blanket with a J hook and 6 skeins of Knit Picks Simply Cotton in “Marshmallow.” After washing and drying (both by machine), the blanket measured 29″ x 26.5″. I really like how it turned out, and if crochet didn’t give me carpal tunnel, I’d be tempted to make another. I especially love the ribbon detail. I’m a sucker for frills. 🙂
