Let's Snuggle Up!

Mamma Bear and Baby Bear All Snuggled Up


My crocheted Mellow Yellow Granny Goodness Baby Blanket for my niece (whose baby girl is due in May) is DONE!

I first blogged about the throw (here).    

Embellished with a pretty layered flower!

Flower Power

A pretty edging added!

I "winged" the edging.  

One huge Granny Square.

This is all of the yarn left of 8 skeins!

I used this book for the Layered Flower pattern (The Encyclopedia of Crochet Techniques by Jan Eaton).

I forgot to measure the throw but it is a nice size and wouldn't have to be used just as a baby throw.

I was so glad to finally use this yarn that I have had since 1995.  This baby blanket is extremely SOFT too.   I had to do a bit of flogging...I realized I didn't have enough to complete the last round of edging so I flogged it and the round before it...then added the last round of edging without any problem.  I even had enough left over to add a lovely layered flower in the center of the blanket.  

Now I would like to try to crochet some baby booties.  Wish me luck!
