Two or so years ago I started crocheting a blanket that I'm pretty sure was meant to be for Bentley. I dug it out of a storage tote about a week ago and thought to myself, "Why not pick it up again!?I can make it for Cora!" So here I was trying to warm my fingers up again, as well as try to remember the pattern that I started. (That portion was lost from moving). I figured it out, thank god and after using all the yarn that I has stashed away for it, here's what we ended up with...
Pretty decent size for a baby blanket! After laying it out though, it was just missing something. I mean this is now for my sparkly little girl, it needs something to make it pop! After searching for what seemed hours, I finally made the decision to put a special border around it. I used white to make an extra row and add some dimension, then added a pom pom stitch around in pink! I am in love! What do you think?
Not bad for putting the hooks away for so long. Crocheting is one of those things that just sticks with you though and is ultimately an easy thing to refresh yourself on if need be.
Logan was pretty impressed too. It'll be special for Cora and last her forever (I could use this blanket for myself, that's how the size turned out.). He wants me to make one for Bentley and us as well! Hopefully Cora will cooperate and stay in my tummy for a couple more months, giving me ample amounts of time to work on these other projects!
