This Ain’t Your Grandma’s Blanket!

28 Dec

 

I’ve been a little busy the last few days {expanding my knowledge} and haven’t dedicated enough time to finishing up my blanket. And then last night, I ran out of yarn. Of course, I ran out of yarn when the craft stores were all closed. {and I refuse to shop at WalMart} Needless to say, it will be a few days before I can get some more – but I thought I would update you on the status {plus I really like taking pictures of it because it is so darn cute}

 

 

I’m trying really hard to keep all my stitches tight and even….

 

I found out from my new friend, The Elder Lady, that the stitch I’ve been doing is a ‘double crochet’ … I looked it up on Google and I’m not too sure if that is it – it looks different to me. Anyone know the name of this stitch? I’m also thinking about adding a border around the perimeter of the blanket when I’m done. Perhaps in a solid color, or maybe with some fabric? I don’t know … maybe I’ll just like it the way it is. That’s all for now… back to the brain.

    Looks like Double Crochet to me!! The reason it looks a bit different then what you see online is probably because you seem to be dc-ing into the space between your dcs (which will give them more of a “bricked” effect). If you were to begin dc-ing INTO the dc directly below you will see the difference in the stitch. I hope this helps answer your question…. Great job on the blanket so far!!! And if you EVER have any crochet questions, i’d be happy to help you out!! Happy Crocheting

    I really love the colors. Your work on this is beautiful and your stitches appear so consistent.

    I bet she loves it!!
