Annie's Blanket

For my friend Annie...on her 55th Birthday!

I loved making her this blanket!  
I didn't have to many color changes,
which means fewer end to sew in...that makes me VERY happy!

I love the white outline of each square.

small, but not too small.

a very simple row of single crochet, followed by a chain 4 skip one row...
don't know what that is called, but I like it.

A smallish blanket, perfect to throw in their camper and head out. Lightweight, soft.

I love the whole process of making a blanket for someone...picking out colors, deciding on patterns and needle sizes,  big squares or little squares, borders...knowing that this person will (hopefully) love it as much as I do.


I used Caron Simply Soft:
Soft Mint

Size 4.5 hook

52 Weeks of Happy (2 of 52)



-  Starting a new knitting project.
-  Awesome looking clouds on our way to celebrate "Opportunity"
-  Squirrels who run in front of me, and scare me to death!
-'s everywhere if you look for it.

Kind of a weird week...
So many possibilities for Alex. 
But what's best? 
What will help him the most?
I will keep at it because he is so worth it!
