A Lovely Blanket….

.

My Sunburst Granny Square Blanket is done!!!! I loved the way it turned out, nice size and perfect weight.  Working off and on it took less than a month to complete… I used a ton of my scrap yarn up too!

.

When I presented this lovely blanket in front of my family, I could tell they all admired it….My 17-year-old daughters response was one I kind of expected,,, She asked if she could have it… I haven’t decided if it is hers yet,,, It may need to be a part of our living-room for a bit!

Easter Granny Square Baby Blanket

.

It’s almost Easter and I couldn’t resist making another sweet Granny Baby Blanket….

.

When I was looking through my stash, trying to decide what to make next… I kept picking up these beautiful Eastery skeins of yarn!   Hmmm… What to make???  Well, if you have been following my recent posts about the Art Walk in our town you will remember that the store I sell my items is participating in the event… Alpine Originals carries handmade items that are created by local artist (me included).  This month their store’s theme for the Art Walk is children’s items, and I have been making quite a few.  I thought I was done with blankets,,, but no… this yarn kept calling me and my hook to get to work…

That’s not the only one though… I am almost done with the next baby blanket,,,  Am I obsessed with baby blankets or what???  The next one is a Camo Granny Square Blanket,,, It is about 3/4 done and I should have it complete just in time for this Friday’s Art Walk…  I will post a picture of it when it’s done…

So here is to Baby Blankets and Granny Squares….
