better late than never: spring blanket for S.

Yellowblanket4

A while ago (okay, over a year ago), after years of pain and paperwork, dear friends of ours finally brought their baby home from China.  Beautiful little S., one year old.

This blanket shouldn't actually take a year to finish.  It got put to the side after some rough times in the Butler house.  And you know how that goes…so when the whole house got sick a while ago I decided to just buck up and finish it.  Within a few days, I had this:

Yellowblanket

And I almost don't want to give it away. 

I am horrible at edgings, so I chose rows of single crochet in a pretty lilac.  I love it.

I hope S. does, too.  Congrats, Lex and Justin!!!

Crochet Notes: Bernat Cotton Tots in "Sunshine" & "Lovely Lilac" (I love this yarn!), Spiderweb pattern similar to this.

Susan - I love the blanket. Very pretty. Congratulations to your friends. My oldest sister, Stephanie, and her husband also adopted a baby girl from China when she was 11 months old (she’s 3 1/2 now). I know the wait is long and hard.

Ransacked Goods - It’s a darling pattern and I love the color combo. Such a nice gift for your friends. It’s always better to finish it and give it late than not at all!

Lucy - Very pretty. You know you done good when you want to keep it at the end =).

Beth - I think it is gorgeous!

Margot - I’m not usually a huge fan of the way crochet looks, but I really like this blanket! The yellow is so nice and sunny!

Andrea - Totally beautiful. And I am sure it will be well loved.
Yellow and lavender together is always a sure bet.

Dayna - That is gorgeous! What refreshing colors! I decided yesterday that I think lilac is my new favorite fashion color. That notion was confirmed as I passed by the display window of Ann Taylor Loft yesterday. Coveting. It’s a terrible thing…

Chris - Wow, that is beautiful. I love that buttery yellow.
