my wintery cuddly make-it-all-better blankie

                    ah. dont you love winter weather. it rains, it pours. i crochet.
                    not only do i crochet, but i put off anything besides.
                            { i have been quite firm with those dishes.}
                    i had the nicest little visitor yesterday,,,,and she and i both
                         decided that the three chain link joining method was the one.
                          
                          so with no hesitation...this morning i set out to do just so.
                         if all goes well, i'll be snuggling under a finished blanket..soon.
                           look..someone loves it already..make that  two.
                                             [ps. thank you mandy]

  1. Is it just me or do children have the brightest eyes? I really like the colour combinations you choose. I'm not usually a big pastels fan, but you do it in a way that works for me.

  5. oh wow that was fast! It looks awesome! & so does Nesta.

    Now I wanna pull my blanket apart & do this join! Ok, maybe I will have to do another blanket so I can do this join! It looks great! Really it does. Well done to you! I can't believe you did it already! But after todays weather I'm not surprised cos it was a good craft day!

  12. My blanket has been in limbo lately-but it is summer here, so I have a little less incentive to make something warm. Of course, distractions from house work is always appealing;)
