I finally finished the scrap baby blanket! At no other time in my life could this blanket have been possible. It is left over ends made from many other blankets and projects including projects my grandmother made from 60 years ago. I was passed down the yarn scraps because I can crochet.
Here is my trusty bag of yarn left overs that I dug out of several tubs in the basement and attic because my craft stuff is everywhere. I would randomly choose a color pull it out and connect the ends and depending on how much yarn was on the ball or skein I would either do a single stitch or a double stitch, or multiple rows. Having no pattern meant that I did not have a specific amount of yarn that I needed or how big the blanket needed to be. It was a very relaxing project. I am able to crochet in very low light by the feel of the yarn. So when we go to the movies I take my crocheting with me, multitask to the max! I also crochet in the car, but only when the husband is driving.
In the photo above you can see the very plain blue border that really helps wrap it up and make it look complete. I personally love my shell boarder but that is a bit fancy for a baby boy blanket.
In this close up you can see that there is no set pattern. This was a very fun gift!
Welcome to the new Klunk baby!
