~ baby blankie #18 ~

First, I want to show how I hold my crochet hook when I'm crocheting.  It's much better for my hand with a handle.  It's not right - it's not wrong - it's just the way I do it.  :)

Second, I'd like to show off baby blankie #18.  It is an 18-point round ripple.  I crocheted it with the bag of mill-end yarn that I got from AC Moore and a 'J' hook.  It measures 29 1/2" from point to point.

  1. This afghan is very pretty. About how much time does it take you to complete?

  4. Thanks ladies. :)

    CrochetnQuilt - it usually takes a few weeks of evening crocheting to complete a blankie.

    Summerysmile - great minds think alike. :)

    Anonymous - I'm liking the mill-end bags - 5 skeins for $6.99 is such a great deal.

  8. Thank you ladies. :)

    BumbleBri - I really can't write out a proper pattern because this is based on Angelfire's pattern (the link is on my right side-bar), but I did write my notes on how I did it. See this post:

  13. Another happy and friendly looking blanket - I just love your work, Debi! I hold my hook the same way - I can't imagine holding it like a pencil, like some people do. Okay, maybe I can imagine holding it like that, but not w-o-r-k-i-n-g with it :)
