I have been working hard on this adorable gift! Every morning while sipping my coffee I sit and crochet a row onto this blanet. It is a scrap blanket. I have taken the left over yarn from other blankets or projects and have been combining them to make one big beautiful baby blanket for a friend. No pattern, because sometimes life is best with some leftovers and unplanned. Yesterday evening I had about 4/5 of the blanet done. Today we had some driving to do and I have 5 more rows done! The husband drives and I crochet and we listen to good music and crack funny jokes. I have a little bit of time on my hands this weekend and am hoping to have it completed. It should be complete with about 15 more rows. I have a bunch of different size crochet hooks. I personally prefer a metal hook to that of plastic, it has a bit more weight to it and it stays cooler in my hands as I use them. Plastic can heat up quick and then my hands can sweat and swell. I also have trouble when my old tired hands start to wear out my grasp gets less tight. When I have a metal needle because of just a bit more weight it doesn’t slip or flip out of my grasp as quickly.
i am hoping to have the last few rows complete and then tie in the ends and put on a boarder all this weekend. Better pictures will be coming! Stay posted!
