THE BABY BLANKET IS FINISHED, AT LAST

 Just a short post today... I finished the white baby blanket and finally have something to show for after such a long time of hooking and ripping.  I came close to throwing in the towel several times when I got frustrated but decided to have another try when I was more rested. 

 It's a good thing that I used white as I had to get two more skeins of yarn. The other baby blankets I crocheted before all used only three skeins of yarn. I had a bit of hesitation to do the border and had a few mistakes but I just kept going as it wasn't affecting the border too much... 

I learned a lot from my mistakes. The acrylic baby yarn I was using seems to be stretchy and probably not a good choice for a beginner like me as it made it harder to see the stitches clearly as the yarn would split often. A worsted yarn would have probably been easier but not as soft.  Anyway, it's done. 







We're having some balmy weather and it was windy today so the snow is melting fast and there's a lot of puddles on the road.  Only 8 days to spring 2021.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit. I hope everyone is in good spirits and doing well.

Hugs, Julia
