Last night I finished my black and white ripple Vintage V-Stitch Blanket.
This is the blankie where I goofed on the double V-stitchs in the "mountains" of the pattern.
And since I liked the look of my goofed stitches I kept going.
But... my blanket is a little smaller due to my error
Doesn't "Blackie the Blankie" pop next to my red, pink and white Gingham Afghan?
I had thought to make the "Blackie the Blankie" larger by expanding the border but I decided I liked the simple V-Stitch border of black.
So I stuck to the pattern.
Love, love both of these baby blankies.
"Blackie the Blankie" measures only 22 inches by 24 inches.
It could be used for a newborn, an infant car seat, a stroller or at least be a doll blankie.
I've already picked my colors out of my yarn stash to crochet a five-color blanket...
...but this time I will follow the pattern.
We leave next week for Florida and Walt Disney World so this project will go with me.
I did something funny
had a Senior Moment yesterday.
Hubby drove me to my hair dresser yesterday and dropped me off.
Checking in I discovered my hair appointment (which is always on a Tuesday) was for Wednesday this month.
So I had to call Hubby back and he didn't get the message until he was already home.
It was funny...we had a good laugh...
...and it was no big deal since we are retired and didn't have anything planned for the day.
The kicker was my iPhone going off while I'm there reminding me of my hair appointment the next day.
