Lacy Blanket

This is another blanket for charity.  The yarn on the sides is a really soft mohair-like yarn.  I can just picture a little baby or toddler rubbing it between her fingers to find comfort, and there are a lot of little holes to discover and stick her fingers through.  This crochet piece was a calming activity for me admidst some stress as of late.

Big Sky

My daughter took this picture, and I cropped it a little, and zoomed in on the best part.  I love how the Light radiates from the little country church.

Baby's Cloud Blanket

This blanket is so cuddly and soft, like a cloud looks.  The yarn for this was really interesting. I got it at the local Big Lots store, at $1 per skien. It was made of polyester thread and at various intervals it had the puffs of color mixed in.  I used the BIGgest size hook I could find in my stash--an M.  I may just have to go back and get some more of that yarn.
