July 2011 Hospice Batch
I made eight donations to the July 2011 batch for hospice.
I had a big spool of this double worsted weight cotton yarn that I could not imagine a use for. Since I didn’t know how far it would go, I decided to just make a big granny square, so that it was done when it ran out.
This lap blanket is made in bulky weight yarn that my aunt and uncle bought at a yard sale. The design is my own Boardwalk Ripple Edged Afghan.
When sorting through my enormous stash of yarn, I found where I had made a few inches of this baby blanket. I thought the yarn worked well for this pattern, but my original start was for a full sized blanket. I ripped it out, and made a preemie set. I improvised the hat to be of the same pattern. The pattern is Rainbow Sprinkles by Kathy Wesley, published in American School of Needlework #1255, The Ultimate Book of Baby Afghans.
This is made from Caron Simply Soft yarn. I worked on this for seven months off and on. It is my own Stained Glass Ripple Afghan pattern.
I don’t know why I originally bought this chunky yarn, but I love how it turned out in this long wave patterned lap blanket.
I used a Caron One Pound skein to make this lap blanket in a butterfly lace pattern.
I made this lap blanket with one skein of Caron Jumbo Prints. I love the prints because they are so soft. This is a pattern I have used before and I’m sure I will use again. The pattern is Diamond Ripple by Anne Halliday in Leisure Arts #108214, Afghans for All Seasons, Book 2.
When crocheting with Lion Brand Homespun I like to use a pattern that is mostly crocheting into chain spaces rather than trying to find stitches. I have used this pattern a couple of times before, and I’m sure I’ll use it many times more.
I would love the pattern to the all blue one. I can’t seem to find it anywhere. Pleas help. Thank you
Is it knit or crochet?
It is crochet. I never finished writing it, so it has not been posted. Since you are interested in it, I am going to concentrate on that one this week and finish it up. I will send you the link to the pattern when it is ready.
I finally finished writing it and have now published it:
