~ baby blankie 1c ~


Finished up this baby blankie last night.  I crocheted it with Loops & Threads Impeccable and ILTY! with a 'J' hook.  It measures 24" x 35".  The border is 1 round of hdc and then the flat braid joining (the link is over on the right sidebar).  The lovely Ladybug is our model for today.

A note about the ILTY! - I had written before saying that it was a little too expensive for me - it's $3.99 a skein - but I find myself still buying the variegated skeins.  They are different, pretty and very soft.  On Friday when Vince and I were out running errands I stopped in and bought a few more skeins.  I couldn't help myself.  :)

  9. Beautiful! I have the same problem about buying yarn. I have never used the Impeccable yarn before, but that is the brand of my last stash that I bought at Michaels.

  11. You are a fast crocheter! You make about three baby blankets to my one. :) They are always so pretty. I will have to try the braid join on my next granny blanket. Thanks for sharing! (((HUGS)))Eileen

  16. Beautiful blanket! I love the rectangles. And your model is sweet.
    I know all about not being able to help buying more yarn! I always seem to grab a few whenever I go to Walmart or Michaels. If it's on sale, all the better!
    Have a wonderful week.

  17. This is so pretty! I too love the softness of ILTY! I go cheap and whenever I know I am going out that way- I check for a 40% off coupon. I "make" my significant other go as well with a coupon in hand too. Check their website In Store Special Section and the weekly coupon is listed right there! Again love your work!
