Baby Blanket (Raiders--boo!)

I know I've been posting a lot of crocheted items lately.  But I think this will be the last one for a while.  I really want to scrapbook more this year.  I even made a list of items I want to complete this year.

Anyway, my husband's friends have been having babies recently!  This is the 3rd baby blanket I've made in the last 18 months for his friends.  Unfortunately, this friend is a Raider fan (boo!) ha ha ha.

 
It actually took me 19 weeks to work on it because I'd put it down and not think about it for a while.  Then I had to wait to see if they were having a boy or girl (It's a girl--3 football color blankets...3 girls!  ha ha ha).  I used a basic granny square pattern for 45 rounds, then 3 hdc rounds and finally a shell (to make it girly)…the result was 49 rounds…hmmm…coincidence?  I think not! :D  (Let's go Niners!)  It is actually a bit big, but that means they can use it on the floor and use it into the toddler years.

Thanks for looking!  And wish me luck that I make time to scrapbook soon!

  3. It's still a cute blanket! It's not like it says Raiders on it. It just looks like a very modern baby blanket for a fashionista mama!;)

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I love to read your comments! I usually reply to all comments, but I don't think a notification is given once I reply.

Also, I have been told that sometimes the comments do not show up...I do not know why that is...if it doesn't show up, then I don't see them.

Unless it is spam...I do not delete any comments. :(
