Granny’s Baby Delivery

Today the Granny Baby Blanket was delivered to the little store where I sell my crochet items, just in time for someone to need a great little gift!  As an avid crochteter, I am so blessed to have a local outlet that will display my handmade items and sell them.  Alpine Originals has supported many local artist and they have a wide range of locally made, handcrafted items… Stop by and check it out if you are in the area (Mt. Shasta California)!

As you may know, I started my crochet journey at the age of 10. Learning from one of the best! My Grandmother Beatrice Ryan Ramshaw… I loved the way my latest Granny Square Blanket turned out,,, I would have loved one of these for one of my children… But like most moms, I didn’t have much time to whip up a baby blanket in a couple of evenings back then!

Great colors for a sweet boy!  I hope it finds a great home!

I love this pattern due to the simplicity and the beauty all wrapped up into one great project.  I don’t mind working from a written pattern, but I much prefer crocheting while watching TV or riding in a car,  having to concentrate on a complicated pattern would have slowed down my pace… In just a couple of evenings of a few great shows (Downton Abby) and this blanket was done.

The blanket is resting on my childhood rocking chair… It is now rocking its third generation!
