My Wish/To Do List #1: Throw Blankets

I’m currently working on a blanket that I had started a decade ago and just recently found .. when I am done this, I want to make a blanket (something small for laps, I think) for each of my grandchildren… (2 girls and 1 boy).

Some options I’ve found:
I like the pattern of this one .. and the yarn looks really cozy soft (UPDATE: Completed: √)

another “to do” wish list item

I think it would be cool to have a row of owls along the bottom of the blanket and then just double crochets for the rest…
this tutorial will help http://crocheteverafter.com/tutorials/free-pattern-workshops/cabled-owl-washcloth-workshop/

Thanks to Amie Jane for inspiring me to think about the “log cabin” pattern. (My Mom is a quilter and wouldn’t it be nice to have a quilted version AND a crocheted one?)
And this one that I found is stunning!

Debbie Pribele ...

found another “must do” …. http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LW2698.pdf

(UPDATE: I tried following the pattern that I found — was lost after about 2 directions! It’s now on the “find another pattern” list)

Debbie Pribele ...

how about a Hudson Bay pattern?

Debbie Pribele ...

another one — this is to use up leftover yarn … and it is BEAUTIFUL (of course you have to have the right colours and the smart colour combinations!)
