This was so much fun to crochet!  I really thought it would be a bit larger with the amount of yarn I used!  Oh well, it is the perfect size for an adult lap blanket.  I thought that if it was completed in pastels, it might make a baby blanket.  But, on second thought, the buttons would be a very loud NO NO.

This pattern never became repetitive to me and I usually loose interest halfway through and have to concentrate my efforts to finish.  I think the many varied styles of squares and edges contributed to holding my interest throughout.  The bonus is that it is a dense heavy blanket, warmth will not be an issue.

So, back to cross stitching the stocking!  I fell a bit behind and need to make up for it.  If I can get ahead again I will reward myself with starting a new afghan!  Cyn


About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website designbycyn.com was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
