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: √)
(here is a great video tutorial re: the basket weave pattern: )

LOVE this pattern … crocodile stitch)

Just too fun not to include – I probably won’t make it but it is SO cute

Love how the blanket is easily turned into a shawl with a hair pin

Beautiful colours/pattern (UPDATE: Completed: √)
Standard Baby Blanket (36″ x 36″) – Ch 130; 116 rows; 1350 yds (Hook: 5.5mm)

Chunky — cuddle up with this on a cold night, oh yah!

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

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!

found another “must do” ….

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