Today I started my fourth and final blanket of the year for Project Linus. I’m using a ripple stitch pattern that I found on Hooked on Needles… I think it’ll be nice and fluffy, very cozy for the wee one. I’m using the same icy yellow color that I used on the previous blankets and I plan to add in the icy mint just for some variation.
I realized as I was writing this post that I didn’t mention the third blanket that I made. I crocheted it using a granny square pattern ~ rustic and quaint, just like a real grandma. I’m including pictures of the blanket because, well, I’m just as proud of it as I am of the others that I’ve made. The center is yellow and the border is green, like the other blankets in this group.
This has been a fun and time consuming project. I’ve had to learn some new stitches and I’ve had to start blankets over several times (nothing like losing count on those single stitches). Still I wouldn’t trade this for anything. If it hadn’t been for National Blog Posting Month and the mitzvah challenge, I probably wouldn’t have started this.
I do plan to continue crocheting blankets for Project Linus but I’d like to branch out and work on other projects too. I will be checking out Crochet ~n~ More
for charity ideas.
One of the changes I plan to make is to maybe do some theme based crocheting. Perhaps use some seasonal colors or something along those lines. I’d even like to create something a little funky but I don’t know what yet. But once I figure it out, you will be the first to know! *wink*
If you participate in a charity, I’d like to know about it, so don’t forget to drop me a line and leave a link if you can.
