i think i started in this in april for tommy. i had made one last year for prairie, here, and wanted to make one for my boy. it is 13 squares wide and 16 high in 8 ply and crocheted with a 4.5mm hook. now the weather is warming up just as i finish but it was used all winter while in progress, first as a foot rug, then as a knee rug and so on as it grew! there was no planning. i just crocheted a few squares and sewed them together. and sewed the ends in as i went-most important!
i love making the label. tommy calls me the momster so in turn i call him tomster. i love freestitching the lettering and not knowing how it will turn out. and i adore crocheting around the edge of the blanket. tommy laughed when i apologised for not being able to stop myself putting some bobbles around the edge. ah the things my children have to put up with! and......now what?!!! i have already made a dolly size one that i will make a bed (well, i will ask michael nicely if he will!) and doll for, for our school fair in november. i think i might start a ripple blanket otherwise i won't know what to do with myself in the evenings!
