Hey guys! So I started on my granny square blanket today, which I will be working with off and on as I do other projects. Here is a pic of the first granny square I have ever made! The pattern is from a book called 200 Crochet Blocks. I’ll post pics as I complete more and attach them. This wont be a huge blanket so I would say 2 blocks a day for about 3 weeks to finish the entire blanket.
I forgot to take pics of the finished baby sweater I made, but here are the parts as I was working them.
Front panel finished
Front panel and right sleeve
Back panel and second sleeve
(Parts from left to right): Back, sleeve, front panel
I used Deborah Norville everyday worsted weight yarn in baby pink, which was incredibly soft and had a beautiful color/sheen. It’s 100% acrylic so machine washable and dryable which is perfect for baby clothes. I’ll get some pics of Sophie, the baby I made it for, wearing it when she’s born (due in August). I am making one for another friend’s baby in a pink/brown variegated yarn and will post pics on that one finished soon.
