This time it's yarn scraps. In the quest to find something to keep me occupied these past weeks, I decided to try to use up some of my baby yarn left from projects I'd done before. I found this pattern,https://www.favecrafts.com/Crochet-Baby-Blankets/Hushabye-Simple-Shell-Afghan, online, and had the colors I needed. This is my finished blanket. Both blue rows and pink rows are the same color; the far rows look darker but they aren't.
Because I used baby yarn, in order to achieve the right width of the different colors, I had to make eight rows of the colors and four rows of the white. The pattern shows more rows of color but there wasn't enough green in my stash to make more; anyway, it would have been too long. I've hunted for baby yarn online and at Wal Mart and can't find it. The brand is Red Heart; do they not make this yarn anymore? It's really delicate and soft.
I'm always shy when showing what I've made; I feel like a cat who has brought a mouse to the back door for praise. :)
Have a safe and happy fourth with your friends and families.
