her purple blankie

Crochetpurple1 

So I bet you're wondering if I've made anything recently or if this blog is going to be all kiddos-girly-blah-blah-blah?  I have to be honest.  At times this blog is going to be like your co-worker's kiddo-decorated cubicle.  I just can't help myself.  But, I have gotten back to my crafty side recently and I'd love to show you some things.

I actually crocheted this purple blankie around the same time as my spring green one that Evyn ignores.  I would point out the pattern but it was so incredibly slow-going and awful I just couldn't do that to you.  There has to be a lacey pattern that goes ten times faster than this one did (and if you happen to know of one, please show me where).  I was actually afraid I'd have to give this to Ashlyn for high school graduation.

Evyn and Ashlyn both dig this blanket.  Maybe because it's a convenient size.  And good for so many things – like a snack:

Or for face-burying.  You know, blankies need love, too.

Or as a speed bump between you and the floor.

Ashlyn sure knows how to get the most out of a good blankie.
