First Finish of the Year



This is the first project I’ve started and finished this year.  It’s the Sewrella Easy Beginner Baby Blanket.  It is indeed easy.  And quick because you’re using a bulky yarn.  It’s a simple half double crochet with a single crochet border.  However I decided to do a round of crab stitch after the first row of single crochet for something more to grab on to.

It’s a soft, squishy blanket you could wrap a baby up in.  That being said, I think I want to do another using a P hook instead of the recommended Q.  I think I’d like it to be a little denser.  It’s one of the issues I have with crochet, the open spaces kind of bother me.  I don’t know why, they just do.  Maybe it’s the bulky yarn.  A single crochet would be too dense and a double would be way too loose.  So I’ll take the hook down a size for the next to see how it works out.

Love the yarn, love the colors, just want to tinker with the look a bit more.  My sister says I need to go for finished and stop worrying about perfect.  Nothing is perfect in the world.  Doesn’t mean I can’t try!
